Around the AFC North (3/14): Bengals Draft Interests

In today's edition of Around the AFC North, we primarily take a look at two more players who the Cincinnati Bengals will be interested in taking with their fourth overall selection in the first and second rounds.

Cincinnati Bengals: Showing Interest in Dareus and Mallet

When asked about the feedback he has received from other teams, here is what defensive tackle Marcel Dareus said:

We’ve got quite a few teams, top four teams, pretty interested in me. They like what I do on the field — of course, everybody likes what I do on the field — but they like the way I handle myself, my mannerisms, the way I carry myself as a person, on and off the field. I tell them I want to be a pro’s pro, and they really look up to that and they really see a difference in the way I play and the way I react.

The Bengals also visited the Pro Day of quarterback Ryan Mallet and have scheduled another workout with him:

Bengals quarterback coach Ken Zampese was there with coaches and front office personnel from the Seahawks, Broncos, Titans and Panthers, who is scheduled to workout with the team this week.

Baltimore Ravens: Foxworth Returning to Full Strength

Ravens cornerback Domonique Foxworth tore his ACL last July, but Ravens head coach John Harbaugh thinks he'll be ready to go for whenever the season gets started.

“He will be back,” Harbaugh said. “He’s spending a lot of time on some of the union stuff, but I know he’s also working out and he’s training. He’s doing great.”

Pittsburgh Steelers: Art Rooney Comments on the Labor Situation

"I was certainly disappointed that we didn’t get a deal done, and I was even more disappointed that we never got into any real bargaining," Rooney said. "The players never really moved off their position, and looking back at the whole mediation, while there may have been a couple of points where there was progress, overall we really never made any progress. In my mind, they never really used the process to get a deal done."
