Today's AFC North Required Reading includes anonymous, mystery commentary on the Baltimore Ravens, two disparate looks at the keys to the Bengals' success this season, Josh Gordon reactions on the Browns, and, of course, more.

A rival AFC North coach spoke to Sports Illustrated about this season's iteration of the Baltimore Ravens. You can find that here; my reaction to the comments will come later today.

James Reagan of Bleacher Report examines the AFC North to see which team will cause the Ravens the most trouble this season.

Kris Knox of the National Football Authority says that the key to the Cincinnati Bengals improving on offense will come from the wide receiver battle we're about to see at training camp.

On the other hand, David Campbell of Bleacher Report says the Bengals' defense is the key to having a successful 2012 season.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer spoke to new wide receiver Josh Gordon, the teams recent supplemental pick, who wants to make a positive impact and put his checkered past behind him.

I am in full support of the Browns' move to grab Gordon in the second round, however Bleacher Report's Tim Daniels thinks they gave up too much.

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Larry Foote is claiming he's been defrauded out of $400,000, according to The Associated Press.

Nick DeWitt of Bleacher Report breaks down what effect new Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley will have on the passing game.
