Morning take: Polamalu back for OTAs?

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

Morning take: Polamalu missed 11 games last season with knee injuries, so this is a good sign that he's getting back to 100 percent. If he's healthy, Pittsburgh's entire defense becomes a couple notches better.

  • Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is turning to baseball to improve his arm strength and mechanics.

Morning take: Flacco is clearly putting in the work to improve. Fantasy football owners could be looking at a sleeper pick for 2010.

Morning take: Yes, because the Browns will draft a quarterback but probably not in the first round. LeFevour is having his Pro Day Wednesday, which will give scouts another look before the draft.

Morning take: Jeanty's return adds depth to an already deep linebacker unit for the Bengals. He also has starting experience.
