AFC North links: Milliner/Haden best duo?

Baltimore Ravens

For Lardarius Webb, patience remains his watchword as he makes steady progress in his rehabilitation from a torn anterior cruciate ligament for the second time in four years, writes Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.

Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel is scheduled to visit the Browns early next week.

Browns CEO Joe Banner executed a minor trade with his former club, shipping 2012 sixth-round linebacker Emmanuel Acho to the Eagles for third-year reserve running back Dion Lewis, whom Banner helped draft in the fifth round of 2011 out of Pittsburgh. The small and shifty Lewis (5-foot-8, 190) will most likely serve as a third-down back and possible kick returner.
