Morning take: Quinn to Cleveland?

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

Morning take: Quinn would be a great fit if he proves he can shake the rust from missing an entire year of football. The Browns may have other targets at No. 6, but grabbing Quinn wouldn't be a bad choice to help a thin defensive line.

  • With Carson Palmer threatening to retire, younger brother Jordan Palmer says he's ready for the No. 1 quarterback position with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Morning take: Jordan Palmer may get a shot in training camp, but Cincinnati is searching very hard to find Carson Palmer's replacement. That tells me all I need to know about how secure the team is in Jordan Palmer as the starter.

  • Baltimore Ravens center Matt Birk says he's willing to tutor a younger center next season if needed.

Morning take: Birk, 34, is playing on a year-to-year basis, and the Ravens may find an eventual replacement in this draft. How would Florida's Mike Pouncey look in Baltimore?

  • University of Texas cornerback Aaron Williams visited with the Pittsburgh Steelers Wednesday.

Morning take: Williams is my pick to land in Pittsburgh, although you never know how the draft board will play out next week. The Steelers need secondary help and they could also use Williams' versatility.
