Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
- The Cleveland Browns signed veteran receiver David Patten.
Morning take: This signing displays some internal uncertainty coming from the Browns in regards to the legal situation of Donte' Stallworth.
- Former NFL receiver Keyshawn Johnson, the cousin of Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ocho Cinco, said he recently talked to Ocho Cinco but isn't sure where he stands with Cincinnati.
Morning take: Things have definitely been quiet on the Ocho Cinco front. But everyone will have a little more information next week when Cincinnati opens its offseason program.
- The Pittsburgh Steelers will host the Tennessee Titans in the first game of the 2009 season.
Morning take: This should be a hard-hitting matchup with plenty of good story lines. But, of course, I would have preferred to see the Steelers and Baltimore Ravens kick off the 2009 season on a national stage.
