AFC North: Clay Matthews III
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
- The agent for center Jason Brown and linebacker Bart Scott says Baltimore Ravens may be able to sign one of the two players, but not both, by the end of the week.
Morning take: Take your pick Ravens fans: Scott or Brown?
- Could USC linebacker Clay Matthews III play for the Cleveland Browns as his dad once did?
Morning take: Every great 3-4 defense has hybrids, and Matthews has the potential to develop into a solid one.
- Offensive tackle Marvel Smith doesn't expect to return to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Morning take: If the phone didn't ring by now, chances are it won't by Friday's start of free agency.
- Add the Cincinnati Bengals to the mix of AFC North teams exploring secondary help, particularly at safety.
Morning take: The draft within the division should get interesting as all four teams make a run this year on either corners (Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Cleveland) or safeties (Cleveland, Cincinnati).
