Morning take: Ravens' backup QB?

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

Morning take: Pending free agent Marc Bulger may get an opportunity to play elsewhere next season. I think the Ravens need a veteran backup to Flacco, though, as opposed to a rookie from the draft.

  • The Arizona Cardinals are pursuing Pittsburgh Steelers defensive backs coach Ray Horton.

Morning take: The Steelers are bound to lose someone from their top-flight coaching staff, and it appears Horton may be that person. He's the favorite for Arizona's defensive coordinator opening.

Morning take: I don't agree with a lot of these AFC North picks. But click the link and formulate your opinion.

Morning take: This is an interesting question, because everyone in Cincy will go through an adjustment period. Simpson was just catching on after three years and now has to start anew.
