Morning take: Ben Roethlisberger update

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

  • Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger still has legal issues resulting from a civil suit filed two years ago in Nevada.

Morning take: It's been more than a year since Roethlisberger had off-the-field issues, which almost makes you forget the first sexual assault allegation from 2009. Roethlisberger would like this to be resolved as quickly as possible, but that hasn't been the case.

  • Baltimore Ravens safety and pending free agent Dawan Landry could be targeted by the Dallas Cowboys.

Morning take: It doesn't appear Landry is returning to the Ravens. Baltimore looks comfortable with safety Tom Zbikowski, who stepped up and played well when inserted into the starting lineup, making Landry expandable.

  • Here is more on whether franchise quarterback Carson Palmer should return to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Morning take: I agree with Cedric Benson and the article that it's time for both parties to move on. Palmer doesn't want to be there, there should be good trade value available, and the Bengals drafted rookie quarterback Andy Dalton. Why not cut ties?

Morning take: These unofficial minicamps should only help the second-year quarterback. McCoy will need to know Cleveland's new West Coast offense better than anyone on the team, which is why it's vital for him to hit the ground running.
