Morning take: Donte Whitner to Cincy?

Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North: Morning take: This would be a good addition for the Bengals, who are in the process of remaking their secondary. Cincinnati doesn't have much speed or impact players on defense, and Whitner could add both.
Morning take: Polamalu has suffered tough injuries two straight years to his knee and Achilles. His health will be key to Pittsburgh making another Super Bowl run.
Morning take: Zbikowski has been a part-time starter for two years. It's his turn to take over next to Ed Reed, who should help with the transition.
Morning take: Receivers Mohamed Massaquoi (ankle) and Josh Cribbs (knee) are both sidelined with early injuries, leaving Little to get valuable playing time. This also gives quarterback Colt McCoy a chance to develop chemistry with the rookie.
