AFC North links: 'Housh' chasing fresh start

Baltimore Ravens

Ravens wide receiver Donte' Stallworth: "There’s already been irreparable damage for the season. Look at a guy like Cam Newton. How is he supposed to compete with defenses like Baltimore when they haven’t had the opportunity to prepare? He’s going to get a few weeks and be expected to suit up and play like the No. 1 pick. That’s going to be tough."

T.J. Houshmandzadeh is hoping for a fresh start in 2011 after a bitter end to last season.

Cincinnati Bengals

Dhani Jones says "Jordan Palmer's not the answer" in Cincinnati.

Houshmandzadeh also weighed in on a few of his former teammates in an interview with the National Football Post.

Cleveland Browns

The team on Thursday announced plans for a one-hour radio show that will air weekdays from 6-7 p.m. on ESPN 850 WKNR.

Defensive lineman Travis Ivey has resorted to wearing cloth shoes as part of his rehabilitation process.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Willie Colon's agent isn't optimistic about the offensive tackle returning to Pittsburgh. "They haven't called about Willie in three years," said agent Joe Linta. "I'm not expecting them to call because they haven't yet. That's the way they do business, and that's fine. But if they do call we'll pick up the phone."
