Morning take: Mike Brown on Ochocinco

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

Morning take: The Bengals clearly aren't happy with their receiver trying out for a pro soccer team and riding a bull. But it probably won't matter because Cincinnati is expected to release Ochocinco and his $6 million salary.

Morning take: This is a solid turnout for a team which expects to be a contender in 2011. Working on timing and chemistry between quarterback Joe Flacco and his receivers are particularly important this time of year.

Morning take: That was another Ravens-Steelers classic that saw Baltimore blow a 21-7 halftime lead. The Ravens are still steaming from that loss, as show Ray Lewis' recent comments showed.

Morning take: This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. Holmgren also said Seneca Wallace and Jake Delhomme are in the mix, but realistically the team is backing McCoy as their quarterback in 2011.
