Could the Ravens Lose Ssenior Offensive Assistant Greg Roman This Offseason?

Greg Roman was a big reason the Ravens run game got turned back around in 2017, but it sounds like he might not be around in 2018 as he’s free to go to any team that might want him.

The Baltimore Ravens are keeping Marty Mornhinweg as offensive coordinator, but the team is unsure whether it will be able to keep senior offensive assistant Greg Roman after he helped fix the running game.

Roman can go anywhere, possibly as an offensive coordinator, after completing his one-year contract with Baltimore. He made a major impact in his first season with the Ravens, who went from No. 28 to No. 11 in the NFL in rushing.

Roman’s reputation has been built on fixing offenses that struggle to grind out yards on the ground. In 2011, in Roman’s first season as San Francisco’s offensive coordinator, the 49ers went from No. 19 in NFL rushing to No. 8. In 2015, the Bills’ run offense jumped from No. 25 to No. 1 in Roman’s first year as the play-caller, improving by a whopping 59.4 yards per game.

This season, Roman took over a Ravens rushing attack that in 2015 and 2016 averaged 91.9 yards per game in those two seasons combined. Only the Chargers and Lions averaged fewer yards over that span.
