Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
Mike Preston of the Baltimore Sun writes Ravens defensive tackle Kelly Gregg is ready for the 2009 season.
Morning take: After sitting out all last year with a knee injury, Gregg is almost like a free-agent addition to this year's defense -- and a pretty good one.
Cleveland Browns receiver Donte Stallworth will plead guilty in his DUI case, according to the Associated Press.
Morning take: Stallworth now will serve jail time, which probably signals the end of his career with the Browns. Expect Cleveland to cut ties with Stallworth and seek salary-cap relief.
Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette keeps an eye veteran Shaun McDonald, who is competing with Limas Sweed for the No. 3 receiver role.
Morning take: This should be a good training camp battle that pushes both players to get better. If both contribute in reserve roles, that's even better for Pittsburgh.
From ESPN.com's John Clayton, free-agent linebacker/defensive end Greg Ellis signed a three-year deal with the Oakland Raiders.
Morning take: Many thought Ellis was a potential landing spot for the Cincinnati Bengals because of the connection with defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer. But the Bengals made enough additions defensively where getting Ellis wasn't a must.
