Here are the most interesting stories Saturday in the AFC North:
Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer writes the Bengals acquired former Washington Redskins punter Ryan Plackenmeier off waivers.
Morning take: There was smoke this offseason that the Bengals were not happy with current punter, Kyle Larson. Now there's fire.
CNN.com jabs the Cleveland Browns for getting rid of former coach Bill Belichick.
Morning take: Every once in a while this comes up locally or in the national media. With Belichick's success after coaching Cleveland, it's certainly fair game.
Clifton Brown of the Sporting News believes free agency is the Baltimore Ravens' biggest obstacle.
Morning take: For now, that is correct. In the fall, I would say it's the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Speaking of the Steelers, Bob Smizik of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says don't expect Plaxico Burress to return to Pittsburgh.
Morning take: The Steelers have been there and done that. They're probably the least likely team interested in a trade for Burress.
