Morning take: Jones calls arrest 'ridiculous'

Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North: Morning take: Eventually, all the facts will come out and prove if Jones is correct. But Jones continues to put himself in bad spots, while the Bengals are counting on him in 2011.
Morning take: Similar to Jones' situation, it's safer to wait until all the facts are presented. Ward's rep also claims Ward is innocent of the charges. So time will tell who is right.
Morning take: This will be a major challenge for the Browns and rookie head coach Pat Shurmur. Not only is time very limited to learn a new offense and defense. But on the flipside, the Browns have to be very careful not to push players too hard early, which could result in injuries.
Morning take: I think Wilson is a slightly better player than Carr, but Carr could come cheaper. Carr also provides solid leadership in the locker room for the Ravens.
