AFC North Notes: Bengals, Browns, Ravens, Steelers



Bengals TE Tyler Eifert is practicing almost without limitations at OTA’s despite surgery for a broken ankle suffered last October.

“I’m doing pretty much everything,” said Eifert via the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Fletcher Page. “There’s a couple things here and there but for the most part it’s all doing everything with the guys.”  

  • Bengals DT Ryan Glasgow says he expects to be cleared to participate in training camp after tearing his ACL in 2018.
  • Per Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, Bengals second-round TE Drew Sample looked good during OTA’s and could allow TE Eifert to work more as a receiver. 



Ravens G Marshall Yanda said he considered retirement at one point last season.

Last year, if I did end the season on IR, I probably was going to retire,” Yanda said via Pro Football Talk. “You don’t want to push your body too much. I love this game and it’s the reason I play it, because I really love doing it. But you don’t want to get to that point where you’re too beat up by the game.” 


  • According to the Athletic’s Mark Kaboly, Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph makes some sense for the Steelers if he’s released. 
  • The Steelers don’t have a lot of cap space, but they could use a second tight end behind Vance McDonald, who has had issues staying healthy and is the only experienced tight end on the roster.
