Caldwell hired to be Ravens’ QB coach
Question of the Day
OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell has been hired by the Baltimore Ravens to be their quarterbacks coach.
Caldwell, 57, was fired by the Colts on Jan. 17 following a 2-14 season. He went 26-22 in three years with Indianapolis, including a Super Bowl appearance.
After working with Indianapolis standout quarterback Peyton Manning for 10 seasons, Caldwell will turn his attention toward improving Ravens QB Joe Flacco and teaming with offensive coordinator Cam Cameron to improve Baltimore's passing game.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh says Caldwell "will be an excellent fit with our team, coaching the quarterbacks and helping with our offense."
Before taking over as head coach at Indianapolis, Caldwell spent seven seasons as the team's quarterbacks coach. Under his direction, Manning won three NFL MVP awards.
Bengals' Simpson pleads not guilty to distribution
COVINGTON, Ky. — Cincinnati Bengals receiver Jerome Simpson has pleaded not guilty to marijuana trafficking.
Simpson entered the plea Monday in Kenton County Circuit Court in Covington. A grand jury indicted the four-year veteran on one count of marijuana trafficking in excess of 8 ounces Jan. 19.
Simpson has been under investigation since September when agents from California tracked a package shipped to his northern Kentucky home. They said it contained 2 1/2 pounds of marijuana. Authorities said a search of Simpson's home also turned up 6 more pounds of marijuana, smoking pipes and scales.
