Here are the top stories Thursday in the AFC North:
In a recent radio interview, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer had some choice words for Chad Ochocinco.
Morning take: The fact that Palmer says he hasn't spoken to Ochocinco this entire offseason is not a good sign. It's important for Cincinnati's quarterback and top receiver to be on the same page.
Regardless of his contract situation, Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel is enjoying offseason camps.
Morning take: In my experience, players in Pittsburgh have a higher sense of pride and enjoyment for the organization they play for. Behind-the-scenes things like this also translate to winning.
Speaking of camps, Cleveland Browns return specialist Joshua Cribbs continues to boycott voluntary minicamp.
Morning take: Conversely, unhappy players can have a reverse effect.
With former Baltimore Ravens starting right tackle Willie Anderson retired, the pressure is now on rookie first-round pick Michael Oher.
Morning take: Similar to all the new offensive linemen (Alex Mack, Andre Smith) in the AFC North, Oher will have to deal with some tough defensive players as a rookie. Oher needs to be a fast learner.
