Top additions: OLB Elvis Dumervil, DE Chris Canty.

Top subtractions: LB Ray Lewis, WR Anquan Boldin, S Ed Reed, OLB Paul Kruger.

Top story: Can a team that shed two likely Hall of Fame players in Lewis and Reed overcome a radical roster makeover to again win what might be the NFL's toughest division?

CINCINNATI BENGALS

10-6, 1-1 vs. Steelers, made playoffs

Top additions: OLB James Harrison, rookie TE Tyler Eifert, rookie RB Giovani Bernard.

Top subtractions: OLB Manny Lawson, S Chris Crocker.

Top story: Can Harrison be an impact player for a team that — remember, these are the Bengals — is trying to make the playoffs for the fourth time in five seasons?

5-11, 1-1 vs. Steelers

Top additions: OLB Paul Kruger, RB Dion Lewis, rookie OLB Barkevious Mingo.

Top subtractions: WR Mohamed Massaquoi, DE Frostee Rucker, K Phil Dawson, WR/KR Josh Cribbs.

Top story: With a whole new staff — welcome to head coaching, Rod Chudzinski — can the bad news Browns ignore the considerable distraction created by the massive federal probe of new owner Jimmy Haslam's truck stop company?

STEELERS

8-8, 3-3 vs. AFC North

Top additions: QB Bruce Gradkowski, rookie OLB Jarvis Jones, rookie RB Le'Veon Bell.

Top subtractions: OLB James Harrison, WR Mike Wallace, CB Keenan Lewis, NT Casey Hampton.
