Baker Mayfield Color Rush Jersey , watching Ben Roethlisberger pass to Antonio Brown or give the ball to Le’Veon Bell, the Steelers will be favored to win the AFC North.It makes no difference that Randy Fichtner is the new offensive coordinator, or that Roethlisberger turned 36 in March.The Steelers are going to score points, and they’re going to play their best against division rivals in big games.Baltimore knows this all too well. Two years ago, Bell rushed for 122 yards and Roethlisberger connected with Brown for a last-minute touchdown in a 31-27 victory that clinched the AFC North title.Last December, Roethlisberger threw for 506 yards and two TDs, Bell scored twice and the Steelers beat the Ravens 39-38.Baltimore hopes to turn things around this year, but if the Ravens are to break a run of three straight years without a playoff appearance, it will likely be as a wild card.There are, by the way, two other teams in the division. Cincinnati and Cleveland deserve mention only because one will likely finish in third place and the other will occupy the cellar.In Cincinnati, coach Marvin Lewis got a two-year extension despite his NFL-record 0-7 mark in the playoffs. After two straight losing seasons, he’s getting a 16th chance to finally get it right.Cleveland is coming off an 0-16 embarrassment and can only hope to be respectable. Since the creation of the current AFC North in 2002, the Browns are the only team never to finish in first place.Some things to know about the AFC North:13<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:FANTASY PLAYS: Changing fortunes for players on new teamsChuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports | Chuck CookFOR WHOM THE BELL TOILS: Pittsburgh and its “Killer Bs” — Roethlisberger, Brown and Bell — have reached the playoffs four straight years. Yet all those trips to January have turned into just three postseason wins and no trips to the Super Bowl.While the rejuvenated Roethlisberger believes he can play until he nears 40, this may be his last legitimate shot to win a third championship. Bell is likely in his final year in black-and-gold after being unable to come to terms with the club on a new long-term deal.Bell is one of the most versatile backs in the league and not easily replaceable. He won’t lack for motivation. He believes he’s a unique talent and wants the paycheck to prove it.Pittsburgh’s best chance to return to the Super Bowl will rely heavily on having Bell at the top of his game and will certainly take the tradeoff of seeing Bell elsewhere in 2019 if it means hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in February.FAREWELL TOUR: Ozzie Newsome is the only general manager the Ravens have ever had, running the show in Baltimore since the team arrived from Cleveland before the 1996 season.Newsome will be stepping aside after this season, to be replaced by current assistant GM Eric DeCosta, who in 2019 will finally get the job he wanted after spurning offers from several other clubs.The Ravens have won two Super Bowls under Newsome, who in his final season has assembled a team that appears better than last year’s model.Having provided quarterback Joe Flacco with a new receiving group, Newsome addressed Baltimore’s most glaring weakness in 2017.BENGALS ON THE LINE: Cincinnati’s offense finished last in the league in yards last season, the worst showing in franchise history. The focus of their offseason was overhauling the line, which failed to protect Andy Dalton or open holes in the running game.The Bengals fired line coach Paul Alexander, traded with Buffalo for left tackle Cordy Glenn , signed right tackle Bobby Hart and drafted center Billy Price in the first round from Ohio State. Despite all that, the right side of the line struggled against the Cowboys in the second preseason game, renewing concerns that problems remain.GOTTA BE BETTER, CAN’T GET WORSE: Cleveland coach Hue Jackson is 1-31 in two seasons with Cleveland, but Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam still believe they hired the right coach in 2016. Time will tell, but the pressure is on Jackson from the get-go to win or there could be more changes in a team that has known mostly upheaval for 20 years.The Browns drafted quarterback Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick, but the Heisman Trophy winner will begin the year as a backup to Tyrod Taylor, who helped Buffalo snap a 17-year postseason drought last season.___Predicted order of finish: Steelers, Ravens, Bengals, Browns.11<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:FANTASY PLAYS: Kelley, Darnold potential sleeper picksVincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports | Vincent Carchietta Wants to play in the XFL with a Texas club" />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesDawgs EDTJust when you thought former Browns’ first-round draft pick quarterback Johnny Manziel had quietly gone into the night, he is back on the sports page. The new XFL will kick off in the spring of 2020, and amongst their eight clubs are two franchises located in the State of Texas: Dallas and Houston. Both teams are unnamed at the present although merchandise is for sale on the XFL website that displays “XFL Dal” or “XFL Hou.” Manziel was recently a signing guest at a sports card show in Houston. As reported by the Houston Chronicle, Manziel told them that he would like to play for one of the two Texas clubs, preferably Houston. Houston will play at “TDECU Stadium” and is the home of the University of Houston Cougars football team. It was built to accommodate 40,000 fans but has a design feature that will allow the stadium to expand to over 60,000. June Jones has been named head coach whom was a coach for the hometown Houston Oilers (NFL) and Houston Gamblers (USFL). The Dallas entry will play its home games at “Globe Life Park” located in nearby Arlington and current home to the baseball Texas Rangers. The park’s former name was “The Ballpark at Arlington” and can seat over 48,000. Although the XFL and baseball season coincide, the Rangers are building a new ballpark adjacent to Globe Life Park which is scheduled to open in 2020. The Dallas head coach is former Oklahoma Sooners’ head man Bob Stoops. If Manziel, now 26 years old, does indeed participate in the XFL, it will mark the fifth professional football league in which he has played. In the history of pro football, he is the lone player to participate in that many professional leagues as a player. John Rieger-USA TODAY SportsHe was the 22nd player taken in the first-round of the NFL draft in 2014 by the Browns in which two seasons later he was released. He remained out of football until the last place Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League (CFL) signed him to a two-year deal in 2018. Hamilton was coached by Jones. After six weeks into the regular season and not playing a single snap Denzel Ward Jersey , Hamilton traded Manziel along with two offensive linemen to the Montreal Allouettes for two players plus two first-round draft picks. Manziel finally won the starting nod in Week 15. Before the following season, the CFL announced that he was banished from the league. Part of his involvement and signing a CFL contract were certain conditions he had agreed upon before his acceptance into the league. At some point during the season, Manziel quit doing most of them such as regular therapist appointments and weekly drug tests. Last year, Manziel participated in the Spring League held in Austin, Texas. The beauty of this situation is that it presents to every professional football entity players that still have football left in them. The bad portion is that none of these players get paid, plus they have to submit an entry fee and get themselves to and from Austin. When the Alliance of American Football (AAF) began play this past February, his signing on March 16, one month into the season, was greeted by front page news. Manziel played in his first game for only two series. On April 2, the AAF was dissolved. Television partners for the XFL include ABC, ESPN, FOX and FoxSports1 (FS1). Four current NFL venues have been rented for home games including StubHub Center (Los Angeles Chargers), CenturyLink Field (Seattle Seahawks), Raymond James Stadium (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and MetLife Stadium (New York Giants/Jets).Eight “Summer Showcases” have been scheduled in June and July for a player invitation-only process in order to evaluate the available talent via workouts. The Dallas event was held June 7 to which Manziel was not involved. If Manziel did indeed sign with Houston, it is located just down the road from College Station, home of the Texas A&M Aggies in which Manziel played his college football and won the Heisman Trophy in 2012 and was a two-time First-Team All-SEC.There may be a snag with signing with the XFL, though. League policy at this moment states that none of their players can play which have a criminal record. In 2016, Manziel was accused of making threats to this then-girlfriend and some physical violence against her. Charges, however, were never brought and he was cleared in November of 2017.In an April 9, 2019 podcast on Pro Football Talk, XFL commissioner Oliver Luck was asked about whether his league would consider Manziel as a possibility. His answer: Eric Bolte-USA TODAY SportsHere is another interview with Luck below who mentions Manziel at the 5:12 mark:
