Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
Morning take: Many elite receivers can be a load to deal with -- it often comes with the position. But the Ravens should have enough veteran leadership to negate one strong personality from changing the chemistry in the locker room.
Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer wants his fourth-ranked unit to get even better in 2010.
Morning take: Rushing the passer and secondary depth are two things Cincinnati's defense can improve. Otherwise, this unit has a lot going for itself.
Morning take: If Pepper gets a long-term deal, the money will be huge. He still has some good years left, but he's exiting his peak playing years.
Morning take: Townsend spent 12 seasons in Pittsburgh, but his days may be numbered with the Steelers this offseason. Either way, it was a good run that included two championships.
