AFC North Notes: Browns, Ravens, Steelers



  • According to Daryl Ruiter, Browns S Damarious Randall saw a specialist for groin injury recently, which has been a problem for him the last few weeks and explains why he was inactive on Sunday.


Regarding the report from earlier in the day that he could be on the hot seat (NFLTR), Ravens HC John Harbaugh told reporters that he’s never been concerned about his job status.

“I’ve never been somebody that worried about keeping a job,” Harbaugh said, via “It’s always been for me doing the job. … I feel really good about the way this team has been for the last 11 years and for the last whatever weeks we’ve been in the season. So no regrets. Never been any regrets here with me. So we’ll keep fighting and that’s what we do.

You always feel pressure. This is a pressure league. It’s the National Football League,” Harbaugh added. “I was hoping we be, what, 7-2 at this point. That was the goal, that was the idea that we could be. You just feel disappointed.”


Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that holdout RB Le’Veon Bell has put himself in a position whether the Steelers could use their franchise tag on him next year at a cost of between $9-$10 million.

This would be at least $4.5 million less than the $14.5 million he would have made under the franchise tag.

The Steelers, obviously, won’t franchise Bell for a third straight year, as it would be too prohibitive, but the transition tag would give them the option to match any offer he receives in free agency.
