Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

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

Morning take: Williams spent his entire career as a starter with the Dallas Cowboys, so naturally he expects that to continue in Cincinnati. But upstart Chinedum Ndukwe should give him a good run this summer.

  • Is Brady Quinn ready to lead the Cleveland Browns?

Morning take: CBS analyst and former NFL quarterback Phil Simms thinks so, and that's high praise coming from a person who's been through it.

Morning take: Winning championships and doing it with class goes a long way.

Morning take: Le'Ron McClain led the team in rushing last year with 902 yards but could see more time at fullback, paving the way for Ray Rice and Willis McGahee to get more carries than last season.
