Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:
Morning take: I'm surprised Fabian Washington received such a high (first-round) tender. With Washington, Domonique Foxworth and Lardarius Webb all under contract, that probably prevents Baltimore from drafting a cornerback in the first round.
Morning take: Let's play deal or no deal: Will Cribbs announce a new contract with Cleveland Friday or not?
Morning take: Many NFL players are not considered frugal. But it's a good idea to do so for at least one year if there is a work stoppage in 2011.
