BALTIMORE RAVENS

10-6 in 2012, 1-1 vs. Steelers, won Super Bowl

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?

CLEVELAND BROWNS

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.

Top story: Is this the end of an era as stars such as Harrison move on and Brett Keisel, Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu near the end of their careers? Or is it the start of another with all of these rookies clamoring for work?
