Morning take: Colt McCoy is healthy, ready

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

  • Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy says he's healthy and ready to get back to work in his second season.

Morning take: McCoy's development will be key to Cleveland's success. The Browns, who didn't draft a quarterback last week, are all in with their 2010 third-round pick.

  • Fresh off the Cincinnati Bengals' selection of former TCU quarterback Andy Dalton, it's time to restart the Carson Palmer rumor mill. The Seattle Seahawks are the first team up.

Morning take: I could see Seattle being interested in Palmer, who would be reunited with his former college coach Pete Carroll. There will be no shortage of interest around the league if Bengals ownership is willing to part ways with the veteran quarterback.

Morning take: Most smart organizations feel that way. Good drafting gives teams an opportunity to mold and keep players longer as oppose to searching for quick and expensive fixes.

Morning take: This is an issue all teams face. Pittsburgh's rookies will be behind whenever the work stoppage ends and will need to get up to speed quickly.
