Morning take: T.O. will wear No. 81

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

Morning take: It's the only number Owens has worn his entire career, so it's no surprise. Sapp also reports some of the money went to charity.

  • Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports Steelers second-round pick Jason Worilds has agreed to a four-year deal.

Morning take: That leaves only first-round pick Maurkice Pouncey unsigned with players due to report Friday.

  • Zac Jackson of FoxSports Ohio writes Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren believes his team will be improved.

Morning take: It's going to be tough for Cleveland to climb out of the basement of the AFC North. Quarterback play will be key.

  • Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun says Ravens center Matt Birk is coming along well after minor elbow surgery.

Morning take: Birk currently is on the physically unable to perform list. But the veteran doesn't expect to be there long.
