New QBs coach should help offense

Most of the time, we look at the moves teams make to get players in the off-season. Those things are analyzed and over-analyzed, and by the time the season begins, most hard-nosed fans know just about everything regarding their teams roster.
But there are other moves also, some that people dont really think about. One of which was the hiring of former Colts coach Jim Caldwell as the quarterbacks coach. Its early, and the Ravens and Joe Flacco havent taken a snap yet, but that move seems set to pay dividends.
Caldwells resume is impressive, and the Ravens knew that when they asked him to come to Baltimore. However, this wasnt just about working with Flacco. It was about making the whole offense better.
First of all, the one thing I think Jim has just done a marvelous job of is just blending in withand just connecting with every guy on the staff, said offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. I think thats been the key.
And even though Camerons seen Caldwell connect with the coaches and the staff, which sometimes isnt an easy thing to do, theres no question about the affect hes had on the quarterbacks.
Now, in that quarterbacks room, its just his experience, Cameron said. The knowledge that he brings to the position. He was a defensive player in college, coached on defense, and he really brings a defensive perspective to the offensive side of the ballwhich was one of the first things he had said in the quarterbacks meetings, which I really appreciated. He has some keen insight into defenses, and obviously has been around.
The biggest impact, of course, could come for Flacco.
Good quarterbacks often seem to be close with a coach, for a number of reasons. Flacco liked it when former NFL quarterback Jim Zorn coached him in 2010. Flacco and Caldwell already appear to have gotten off to a good start, something which could help the whole offense have fun this year.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Roster spot questions begin

Kick off your Wednesday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Chris Board is making a run for a starting spot at linebacker for the Ravens, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. Board and Kenny Young will reportedly make a run for the starting spot opposite Patrick Onwuasor, but Board is pulling ahead of the pack Zrebiec says. The spot is up for grabs since the Ravens lost C.J. Mosley in free agency.

2. Also looking to earn a roster spot is wide receiver, Jordan Lasley. After training during the offseason with Lamar Jackson, many expected Lasley to show up to minicamp ahead of the pack, but after making some drops, Zrebiec says Lasley "will need to pick up his game" if he wants to get a spot on the Ravens roster.
