Morning take: More passing in Pittsburgh?

4/10/2011

Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:

  • Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and offensive coordinator Bruce Arians would like to throw more next season.

Morning take: Winning comes first and Pittsburgh had good balance during last year's Super Bowl run. Roethlisberger threw for 3,200 yards in 12 games and probably would've had back-to-back 4,000-yard seasons if not for a four-game suspension. Throwing for 5,000 yards won't happen in Pittsburgh.

  • The Baltimore Ravens met with former University of Pittsburgh receiver Jonathan Baldwin.

Morning take: We recently talked with Baldwin and he believes he can help a team at the next level. The Ravens need more playmakers at receiver, and Baldwin has the size and physical tools.

  • Is Georgia receiver A.J. Green the choice at No. 4 for the Cincinnati Bengals?

Morning take: Chad Ochocinco could be on the trading block this offseason. So picking Green would fill the spot as Cincinnati's No. 1 receiver. We will have a breakdown of Green's strengths and weaknesses later today in the AFC North blog. Don't miss it.

Morning take: Davis, who now coaches at North Carolina, has several top prospects in this year's draft, such as defensive end Robert Quinn. Davis was 24-34 before resigning in Cleveland, but he's been very successful during his college stints.
