Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC North:
- The Pittsburgh Steelers visited Thursday with former Oakland Raiders and Minnesota Vikings linebacker Napoleon Harris.
Morning take: This visit with Harris makes sense because inside linebacker depth behind starter Lawrence Timmons is thin with the departure of Larry Foote.
- In his first news conference with the Cincinnati Bengals, safety Roy Williams is out to prove critics wrong.
Morning take: I'm interested to see if Williams, a career starter, will play a backup/specialty role in Cincinnati, or if the Bengals expect the former Pro Bowler to be an every-down player.
- Are the Cleveland Browns building a winner this year or rebuilding for the future?
Morning take: Good question. The Browns have little chance of winning the AFC North this year, so in that way they are rebuilding. But an easier schedule should help them win more games than last season.
- Here is the early line on the Baltimore Ravens' tryout of four veteran receivers.
Morning take: Jerry Porter is the favorite according to the story, despite flaming out with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2008.
