Morning take: Mike Holmgren talks combine

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

  • Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren says he's looking for a "home-run hitter" at the NFL combine.

Morning take: Does that mean he's looking for a home run receiver and a home run defensive end? That is the question.

Morning take: FoxSports' Adam Caplan lists seven, and that doesn't include quarterback with Carson Palmer's potential retirement. The draft will help, but this is at least a two-year rebuilding effort in Cincinnati.

Morning take: Stallworth's early foot injury set him back and he was never able to find a firm role in the offense. The Ravens need speed and the pending free agent has it.

Morning take: The Steelers are thin at corner, so that could lead to Taylor returning. But I could also see age and the price tag for corners causing a potential separation.
