Around the AFC North (4/15): Bengals Done With Palmer

In today's edition of Around the AFC North, we take a look at the continued quarterback controversy in Cincinnati, whether the Ravens should trade back in the draft, and if the Steelers could take a running back in the first round.

Cincinnati Bengals: Bengals Done Trying to Convince Palmer

Let's hope that this keeps the Bengals in line to draft a quarterback with the No. 4 overall pick:

While there have been reports that the Bengals were trying to talk to Palmer and possibly coax him to come back, those attempts, if there actually were any, were obviously unsuccessful. Now, it seems, that the Bengals are moving forward, knowingly without Carson Palmer and it sounds as if head coach Marvin Lewis is done trying to convince Palmer to return.

Baltimore Ravens: Would it be Beneficial to Trade Back?

Despite having the No. 26 overall pick in the first round, Ravens fans are discussing whether it might be beneficial for them to trade back if they feel the player they want is valued to be taken later on in the draft.

The possibility of the Baltimore Ravens trading their 26th pick in this month's NFL Draft is a more likely scenario than the team trading up to pick earlier in the first round. The Ravens have been all about their "Best Player Available" mantra and if the player they think would help the team most is rated lower than their 26th pick in round one, then GM Ozzie Newsome wouldn't hesitate to drop back for more picks.

Pittsburgh Steelers: A First-Round Running Back?

Steelers fans discuss the thought of taking a running back in the first round of the draft.
