Morning take: Steelers to cut Max Starks

Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North: Morning take: This is a surprising move. Most people pegged Flozell Adams as the first tackle to go, but Starks does have a bigger contract. This is further proof that Pittsburgh has a lot of tough decisions to make to get under the cap.
Morning take: This is great news for Kindle and the Ravens. Both sides need an early gauge on how much Kindle can handle following a fractured skull last summer, and being cleared will allow that.
Morning take: We like the idea because it's low risk and high reward. With Jake Delhomme about to be released, the third quarterback spot is wide open.
Morning take: Simpson did well at the end of last season, but Cincinnati still drafted A.J. Green to start ahead of him. If Chad Ochocinco stays, Simpson may have to fight for playing time.
