Morning take: James Harrison surgery

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

Morning take: Harrison dealt with a shoulder ailment late in the year but it's unclear if that's what the surgery is for. Either way, his timeline shouldn't impact much in the offseason.

Morning take: Cleveland's defense will have a very different look in 2011. Jauron has the challenge of improving personnel and teaching a new 4-3 scheme.

Morning take: Stranger things have happened, but I just don't see it. The Ravens have a need at tackle but likely will look elsewhere.

Morning take: Bratkowski spent a long time with Carson Palmer in Cincinnati with mixed results. So it will be interesting to see how Bratkowski develops young, up-and-coming quarterback Matt Ryan.
