“Are we headed in the right direction with this offense? We are,” Newsome said. “Are we satisfied with where we are right now? No. But we think the best way to get there is to maintain the continuity of having Cam, then to bring in someone like a Jim Caldwell to bring another set of eyes with that.”
Other projects that must be tended to this offseason include negotiating with guard Ben Grubbs, whose contract is up. Newsome said the biggest need for the team is the offensive line, and Grubbs is an important part of it.
One thing that won’t happen this offseason: The Ravens will not sacrifice their third-ranked defense in favor of strengthening the league’s 15th-ranked offense.
“It’s a very delicate balance when you try and shift attention over to the offense,” Bisciotti said. “The next thing you know, you’re giving up 27 points a game. We don’t want to be there as an organization.”
