Now that the Steelers have been eliminated from the playoffs, each AFC North team is done for the season. The Browns have a new head coach, but they are still looking to fill out the rest of their staff. The Ravens added another coach to their staff, which hasn't changed much this offseason.
The Ravens are starting off the offseason quietly. They haven't let go of any coaches and haven't made much noise after the season ended. The Ravens added former Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier to coach their defensive backs. This has been the biggest move they've made so far this season. The move adds even more experience to a staff that has bred continuity over the past few seasons. It could be one of the biggest reasons that even though the Ravens were short handed for much of the season, they were never really out of any of their games.
We all know that Hue Jackson has never been shy about saying what is on his mind, and he hasn't changed one bit. On Sunday Jackson made it known, without explicitly saying that Johnny Manziel is not his future quarterback. He isn't tipping his hand that the Browns will be taking a quarterback with the second overall pick, but he has made it clear that it's possible. What the Browns plan to do with the rest of their assistant coach vacancies seems to be a little bit more of a mystery. While Jackson has an incredible amount of respect as a coach, the Browns seem to be a much harder sell on coaches given their lack of consistency. It will be interesting to see who rounds out the staff in Cleveland.
- The Steelers shouldn't be happy with morale victory
- The Steelers will be picking right after the Bengals in the draft
- Could a Steelers' great be calling it quits?
