On the latest episode of The PFN Bengals Podcast, ESPN's Brooke Pryor joins the show to tackle the biggest lingering questions for every team in the AFC North.

After finishing last in the AFC North in 2023, the Cincinnati Bengals will try to rebound and win the division title next season. But they’ll face plenty of competition from the Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, and Pittsburgh Steelers in what’s become the NFL‘s most challenging division.

In this week’s episode of The PFN Bengals Podcast, ESPN’s Brooke Pryor joined Dallas Robinson to discuss the most significant questions for every team in the AFC North.

With free agency and the 2024 NFL Draft in the rearview mirror, rosters are largely set. However, every AFC North club has at least one significant roster question heading into next season that they could afford to address over the coming weeks.

The Steelers drafted Michigan WR Roman Wilson in Round 3, but have they done enough at pass catcher after trading Diontae Johnson earlier this offseason?

What about the Ravens, who lost 60% of their starting offensive line and failed to re-sign WR Odell Beckham Jr.? Few NFL teams seem to add as many impact summer free agents as Baltimore, which added EDGEs Jadeveon Clowney and Kyle Van Noy and CBs Ronald Darby, Rock Ya-Sin, and Arthur Maulet in May 2023 or later.

The Browns’ and Bengals’ lingering questions are similar: Can their starting QB stay healthy? Deshaun Watson wasn’t productive even when he wasn’t injured, while Joe Burrow is still recovering from the wrist injury that ended his season last November.
