New Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Dick Jauron has a tough task ahead.
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.
Offensive tackle and pending free agent Jared Gaither wants to return to the Baltimore Ravens.
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.
