Running back Justin Forsett’s 24 carries for 129 yards represented an impressive performance to close out his storybook campaign, but it’s much more interesting what happened behind him on the Ravens‘ depth chart, writes Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun. In short-yardage situations, it was Fitzgerald Toussaint getting the key red zone carries rather than Bernard Pierce, who played just four snaps and got just one carry. Today’s look at the AFC North..
- Former Bills coach Chan Gailey is among the candidates the Browns will consider hiring as their sixth offensive coordinator in six years, according to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports. Gailey, who turned 63 last week, has spent the past two seasons out of football after being fired as Buffalo’s head coach.
- Ian Rapoport of NFL Network (on Twitter) hasn’t heard of an extension or raise for Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. It seems that he just flat out wants to stay in Baltimore, without any incentive.
- The Ravens have a number of players set to hit the open market this offseason and Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com runs down the odds of each of them returning. Some, like long snapper Morgan Cox (85%) seem pretty likely to stay in Baltimore while others like tight end Owen Daniels (60%) could go either way.
