Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:
With the potential legal situation facing Ben Roethlisberger, should the Pittsburgh Steelers acquire another quarterback "just in case."
Morning take: Right now time is on Pittsburgh's side. That's a plus in this situation, in which the Steelers have five weeks before the NFL draft to gather all the facts and establish an educated plan of action.
Veteran linebacker Scott Fujita is embracing the challenge of turning around the Cleveland Browns.
Morning take: It's a lot easier when you're coming off a Super Bowl victory with the New Orleans Saints. But Fujita's goal is to bring a winning mentality and toughness to Cleveland's defense.
Is receiver Antonio Bryant the missing link to the offense of the Cincinnati Bengals?
Morning take: This signing helps, but the Bengals still have work to do. Tight end and offensive guard are still big needs.
Meanwhile, the situation for Baltimore Ravens backup quarterback Troy Smith remains in limbo.
Morning take: For a fifth-round tender, someone will take a chance on Smith. But the trade market and unrestricted free agents are taking precedent early.
