Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC North:
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger tells Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review he intends to train in Pittsburgh during his conditional six-game suspension.
Morning take: It's probably best that Roethlisberger stays in town and keeps his focus on football. The most important thing for him is to stay sharp and in shape.
Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times shares some insight on the Baltimore Ravens' trade for former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Josh Wilson.
Morning take: I like this move. It improves the secondary and doesn't require another player (Willis McGahee?), which hurts depth elsewhere. Wilson will help immediately, and Seattle gets a conditional draft pick.
Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports Bengals coach Marvin Lewis defends his team's medical staff after a bad week involving former players Antonio Bryant and Rashad Jeanty.
Morning take: This is a smart move by Lewis, because the Bengals cannot afford to lose the trust and confidence of their players.
Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal takes a look at Sports Illustrated's 5-11 prediction for the Cleveland Browns.
Morning take: The Browns won five games last year with less talent. But the AFC North will be brutal this year.
