AFC North Notes: Flacco, Steelers, Browns

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is upbeat about new offensive coordinator Marc Trestman, Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun writes. Although Trestman and Bears quarterback Jay Cutler were not successful together (especially in 2014), Flacco believes that he’ll get along just fine with his OC. “Everybody likes Marc, I think he’s a bright guy,” Flacco said Saturday night. “I think he’s running the meetings well. I think he’s doing some really good things. We’re evolving a little bit. I think he’s going to be a good fit.”

  • Steelers GM Kevin Colbert says there are some “special backs” in this draft, Scott Brown of tweets. Meanwhile, coach Mike Tomlin says the Steelers are open to drafting a running back even after the signing of DeAngelo Williams (link).
  • The Browns had a last minute meeting with Georgia receiver Chris Conley, a league source tells Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. As previously reported, Cleveland also met with Central Florida receiver Breshad Perriman. Conley ran the 40-yard dash in 4.35 seconds at the Scouting Combine, the third fastest time for all receivers in Indy.
  • The Browns could go defensive end, wide receiver, running back, or tab Washington nose tackle Danny Shelton with the No. 12 overall pick, Jeff Schudel of The Morning Journal writes. If they go pass rusher, Randy Gregory could be a phenomenal value for them, but it’d be a gutsy move to take him given the Josh Gordon saga of last season.
