Here are the most interesting stories in the AFC North:
The Pittsburgh Steelers begin their title defense Saturday with the opening of training camp.
Morning take: Pittsburgh's veterans say they learned a lot from the debacle of 2006, when the team missed the playoffs after winning a Super Bowl the year prior. The Steelers get to prove it, starting today.
Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed admits he's thought about retirement the past couple of seasons.
Morning take: I always sensed Reed, 30, will walk away from football a little earlier than people expect. I'm not sure when that time will come for Reed, but he isn't the type of person who would barely hold on as a declining NFL player.
The Cincinnati Bengals put their best foot forward at the start of training camp.
Morning take: The Bengals continue their optimism that began in the spring. We will have more from Bengals camp this weekend.
Here are 10 issues facing the Cleveland Browns this season.
Morning take: The Browns are certainly a team in transition and need to make the most of training camp. If Cleveland is a better team a month from now than it is at this moment, it would be a good first step.
