Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:
According to Warren Sapp of the NFL Network, new Cincinnati Bengals receiver Terrell Owens paid Antonio Bryant an undisclosed sum to wear No. 81.
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.
