Morning take: Ochocinco will dance

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

Morning take: Well, chances are Ochocinco won’t show up for the start of Cincinnati’s offseason program on March 29. "Dancing With The Stars" begins about a week earlier.

  • Former Pittsburgh Steelers pro scouting coordinator Doug Whaley is hitting the ground running as assistant general manager of the Buffalo Bills.

Morning take: I've gotten to know Whaley some over the past two years and he definitely knows his stuff. This was a smart hire for Buffalo.

Morning take: Holmgren knows quarterbacks, which is key because Cleveland has lacked stability at that position since the days of Bernie Kosar.

  • The Baltimore Ravens need to act soon on their restricted free agents.

Morning take: Expect left tackle Jared Gaither, fullback Le'Ron McClain and backup quarterback Troy Smith to get tendered. From there, Baltimore has some decisions to make.
