Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:
Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Jeff Reed, who has the franchise tag, says it's "50-50" whether he will sign a long-term extension.
Offensive lineman Tony Pashos is competing for a starting job with the Cleveland Browns.
Morning take: If Cleveland's right side of the offensive line catches up to its left side, the Browns could be effective. But that remains a question mark.
Don't expect many early signings with the rookie class of the Cincinnati Bengals.
Morning take: It's too early to panic. There have been zero rookie signings in the AFC North so far.
Baltimore Ravens linebacker and special-teams ace Brendon Ayanbadejo is still recovering from a quad injury.
Morning take: Many forget how well Ayanbadejo played at linebacker before his injury. He could be a nice, under-the-radar addition if healthy.
