What will Greg Roman’s role be?

NFL: Preseason-Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens are making moves on the offensive coaching staff as the team has hired former Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

Roman has familiar history with the Ravens. From 2006-2007, he worked with the organization under former head coach Brian Billick as an offensive line assistant. Now, he’s working under head coach John Harbaugh.

Roman has over 20 years of experience in the NFL. From 1995-2001 he coached for the Carolina Panthers as an offensive quality control coach and an assistant offensive line coach. Roman was the offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers from 2011-2014 under John’s brother Jim Harbaugh, and for the Bills from 2015-2016 under Rex Ryan.

As Rapoport noted, it is unclear at this time what Roman’s position will be on offense. But given Roman’s history along the offensive line, he might have a lot of say in that capacity to the extent where it will be interesting to see what happens with offensive line coach Juan Castillo. In addition, if things go south with Ravens offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg in 2017, Roman would in all likelihood be the backup solution to fill the offensive coordinator role.
