With full-team minicamps beginning in about two weeks, the AFC North blog is taking one final look at the division's top 20 free agents. Only one player, Josh Cribbs, remains unsigned. The division teams were able to keep nine players on the list. Remember to check ESPN.com's free-agent tracker to keep up-to-date with all the moves around the league.

Here is the rankings and where the players stand now (* -- unsigned):

1. Joe Flacco, Ravens QB: Signed a six-year, $120.6 million contract with the Ravens. The then-record deal includes $52 million guaranteed and a $29 million signing bonus.

2. Mike Wallace, ex-Steelers WR: Signed a five-year, $60 million contract with the Dolphins. The deal includes $30 million guaranteed and an $11 million signing bonus.

3. Ed Reed, ex-Ravens FS: Signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the Texans. The deal includes $6 million guaranteed and a $2 million signing bonus.

4. Andre Smith, Bengals OT: Signed a three-year, $18 million contract with the Bengals. The deal includes $5 million guaranteed and a $3 million signing bonus.

5. Michael Johnson, Bengals DE: Signed a one-year, $11.2 million franchise tag with the Bengals.

6. Dannell Ellerbe, ex-Ravens ILB: Signed a five-year, $34.75 million contract with the Dolphins. The deal includes $14 million guaranteed and a $7 million signing bonus.

7. Paul Kruger, ex-Ravens OLB: Signed a five-year, $40.5 million contract with the Browns. The deal includes $20 million guaranteed and a $6 million signing bonus.

8. Phil Dawson, ex-Browns K: Signed a one-year, $2.35 million contract with the 49ers. The deal includes a $1 million signing bonus.

9. Dennis Pitta, Ravens TE: Restricted free agent received second-round tender ($2.023 million).

10. James Harrison, ex-Steelers OLB: Signed a two-year, $4.45 million contract with the Bengals. The deal includes a $1.2 million signing bonus.

*11. Josh Cribbs, Browns WR-PR: Unsigned. He failed to reach an agreement with the Cardinals, so he's been visiting the Raiders, Jets, Giants and Lions this week. My guess is he signs with Detroit.
