Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
The coaching staff is pleased Cleveland Browns players organized their own workouts.
Morning take: Pat Shurmur has to be very eager to coach his players this offseason. Besides film study, the lockout has prevented the rookie head coach from getting to know his roster's strengths and weaknesses.
The Cincinnati Bengals are also dealing with the effects of the lockout.
Morning take: The Bengals have more continuity than the Browns. But Cincinnati still has to integrate a rookie quarterback into a new offense, which will be a challenge.
The Baltimore Ravens have had good luck drafting players from the University of Maryland.
Morning take: Receiver Torrey Smith is the third Terp to be picked by the Ravens. He follows Jermaine Lewis and Jared Gaither, and both had success. The Ravens hope Smith can be a solid No. 3 receiver this upcoming season.
Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward continues to excel on "Dancing With The Stars."
Morning take: Ward is now the favorite to win it all. If that's the case, he would be just the second NFL player to win the competition, joining Emmitt Smith.
