Ravens Have a Lot of Work in the Offseason

The Ravens have a lot of work to do in the offseason to make it back to the Super Bowl. The Ravens started off the season with a lot of distractions. At the beginning of the season, the Ravens learned that their starting running back was suspended for a year due to his domestic violence charges.

This did not affect the Ravens much as Justin Forsett decided to have the best season of his career having over a thousand rushing yards and making it to the Pro Bowl.

The Ravens had a new offensive coordinator, Gary Kubiak. Kubiak was previously the head coach of the Houston Texans. Kubiak was known to run a zone run offense and this benifited Forsett because he is a small back that hides behind his line and is very good at making one cut.

There are a lot of things the Ravens will need to do this offseason to get back to the Super Bowl. The first thing the Ravens will need to do is find new corners and and a veteran cover safety. Most people would agree that the Ravens’ weakness was the corners and safeties. The Ravens were without their number one corner Jimmy Smith. Smith suffered a season-ending foot injury that really hurt the Ravens.

So the Ravens need to get some depth in the corner back position. They also need a veteran safety that knows what is going on back there. That safety needs to be able to cover because the ravens have safeties that can come up and run support, but we need a safety that can cover the middle of the field.

The big question is who is going to stay a Raven. The Ravens have 30 free agents and they aren’t going to be able to keep them all. So the question is who are they going to keep. The big name free agents are wide receiver Torrey Smith and tight end Owen Daniels.

I believe that they will keep Torrey Smith, and they will need to try to pick up a new free agent wide receiver. Owen Daneils’ stay all depends on if Dennis Pitta is healthy in time for next season.

The Ravens have hired a new offensive coordinator since Kubiak decided to take the head coaching job in Denver. The Ravens new offensive coordinator is Marc Trestman. This name might sound familiar; this is because he was the Bears’ head coach last year. He is planning on learning the Ravens offense and adding new things to give us more threats.
