Newsome will not be in charge of the front office for the first time in a very long time. How much things will actually change does remain a question though; Eric DeCosta has been in the pipeline to take over his position for the past five years and it’s reasonable to wonder if he’ll bring a pretty similar team building gameplan to the table.The fact is that DeCosta had been Newsome’s right hand man for a good amount of the latter’s two decade tenure. Conventional wisdom may dictate that he’ll simply follow Ozzie’s way of doing things Womens Brandon Williams Jersey , though there’s no way to tell until the new league year begins and he can really start to make his mark on the franchise that’s been grooming him to do so.Even in that light, it may be difficult to project how he’ll handle the most important position in all of sports (quarterback) for a franchise that hasn’t seen it be in flux like this for a decade plus. It never hurts to predict though, so let’s take a look at how it may shake out below:Current Depth ChartLamar Jackson: 2019 cap hit = $2,152,646Joe Flacco: 2019 cap hit = $26,500,000Robert Griffin III: Unrestricted Free AgentOffseason outlook: Despite an overall rough playoff outing against the Chargers, Jackson is the unquestioned guy moving forward, something John Harbaugh was quick to confirm after the loss. Another thing Harbaugh addressed is the $26 million elephant in the quarterback room.That would of course be the status of Joe Flacco as a Raven, something the coach (who is currently in contract negotiations of his own) confirmed has run it’s course:As rough as Lamar looked at times against L.A. Authentic Patrick Onwuasor Jersey , this is the pretty obvious scenario we’ve all known was going to play out for upwards of at least a month, especially when the rookie was in the midst of his 6-1 tear. The question then becomes, what will actually happen with Flacco?The 12-year vet just turned 34 and has a complicated history of injuries and poor play over the last few years. In that sense, the question isn’t whether he’ll have a market; it’s what kind of market are we actually talking about?We could start by looking at potential landing spots. The former Super Bowl MVP has been linked with a few teams already, namely, Denver, Miami, Jacksonville and the New York Giants.From his perspective Jacksonville makes a ton of sense as Blake Bortles is all but confirmed to be on his way out and the roster is ready made for a deep run on paper. The other spots all work for varying reasons, with Denver and the Giants making sense due to their reputations as historic franchises.The question is will the Broncos fully hand over the keys to Flacco with Case Keenum still possibly in the picture, and are the Giants finally ready to move on from Eli Manning? The Dolphins make sense if they’re cutting bait on Ryan Tannehill as has been reported Authentic Alex Collins Jersey , though with the franchise and it’s front office in a nebulous position, it’s fair to wonder if the attraction would be mutual.Ultimately it seems that Flacco will have some say in his destination which could hurt Baltimore in terms of trade negotiations should they pursue that route. The only real question from the franchise’s perspective is what can they get for him in that scenario?Alex Smith, who had played well in his five years in Kansas City, netted a third round pick and a good player in Kendall Fuller from Washington. At this point, Baltimore would likely be thrilled with a 3rd rounder for a player they’ve already confirmed is on his way out.Regardless of how all of that plays out, Baltimore is in a desirable position quarterback wise moving forward. They have a young cost controlled starter for the next four years who has shown an ability to win games in this league; with Flacco coming off the books freeing upwards of $10 million dollars in cap space (including other roster moves likely to be made) DeCosta will have plenty of resources to build around Lamar.The final remaining question is who will be his backup next season? RGIII was an unexpected training camp to final roster holdover and stayed with the team throughout the entire season.It’s possible they did this in order to establish the continuity with Griffin in order to re-sign him to backup Lamar, which seemed to have the desired effect. Based on everything Griffin has said, he seems happy in Baltimore and would logistically be the right choice to be the no. 2 QB next year.His cap hit for this past season hovered just over a million which is perfectly fine for a quality backup, and for a guy who had been out of football for an entire year prior to 2018, it’s conceivable he’d be more than happy to accept the reliever role on a likely higher salary.We’ll see what happens with Griffin Womens Willie Snead IV Jersey , but don’t ultimately be surprised if he’s not an unrestricted free agent for much longer.How do you expect all of this to shake out? Let us know in the comments down below. Eric Weddle walked into the interview room in full uniform. Then the Baltimore Ravens well-bearded safety did a little dance and made a proclamation."I told you," Weddle said. "These ain't the same Ravens."After two years and two painful near misses, he might be right. Baltimore can win in Pittsburgh again, fueling confidence the Ravens can win anywhere.The proof came in a cruelly efficient 26-14 victory over their AFC North rivals on Sunday night that looked an awful lot like how it used to look when Baltimore had it going earlier in head coach John Harbaugh's tenure.Joe Flacco threw for a 363 yards and a pair of scores. Justin Tucker kicked four second-half field goals. Baltimore's defense did the rest, keeping Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown under wraps over the final 30 minutes as the Ravens (3-1) ended a three-game losing streak to the Steelers (1-2-1)."You can't become a true Raven until you win in Pittsburgh," Weddle said. "I've officially become a Raven. What a great team win."Pittsburgh managed just 47 yards in the second half, sputtering in a place the Steelers have so often soared. Not this time. Not on a night they converted just 2 of 12 third downs and didn't take a snap in Baltimore territory after halftime."I just didn't make enough plays, point blank," Roethlisberger said. "I'll take ownership on this game. Squarely on me."Two years ago, the Ravens fell on Brown's "Immaculate Extension" on Christmas night. Last winter Authentic Tavon Young Jersey , Baltimore scored 38 at Heinz Field ... and got beat on a field goal in the final minute. Those memories have been hard to shake."I think it was all in the back of our heads," Weddle said. "The way we've lost here has not been fun."Maybe that's what made this one a little sweeter than most. Even Harbaugh admitted this wasn't just another opponent and this wasn't just another victory, answering loudly "yes it does" when asked if there was a different vibe this time around.The Steelers (1-2-1) came in having won nine straight Sunday night appearances. Baltimore brought Pittsburgh's run to an abrupt end. Roethlisberger finished 27 of 47 for 274 yards with a touchdown and an interception for the Steelers. Brown caught five passes for 62 yards, including his second touchdown pass in as many weeks.Yet Pittsburgh couldn't generate anything in the second half. The Steelers mustered three first downs after the break and there was no balance to be found. Pittsburgh ran the ball 11 times for 19 yards, the absence of All-Pro running back Le'Veon Bell — who has yet to sign his franchise tender — growing more acute by the week.Harbaugh awarded one of the game balls to the defense. Defensive coordinator Don Martindale accepted after putting together a plan that Weddle said had the Ravens a step ahead.It certainly looked that way. While Pittsburgh floundered, Flacco put together a string of clock-consuming possessions that ended with field goals by the ever reliable Tucker as Baltimore proved its strong start was no fluke.Harbaugh called Flacco's play "phenomenal." Flacco isn't quite ready to go that far. If anything, he was angry the two teams were tied at the half after Baltimore let an early 14-point lead get away."I really felt like we could have had 28, 30, 35 points out there at halftime," Flacco said. "These guys and the way these games have been ... especially the last couple years Womens Alex Lewis Jersey , you don't want to leave points out there."The Steelers came in hoping the defense was slowly starting to find itself after forcing four turnovers last Monday night in Tampa during a victory Pittsburgh believed would resuscitate its season.Not quite.Flacco wasted little time helping Baltimore race to a 14-0 advantage. He found John Brown open on a 33-yard touchdown pass on Baltimore's opening possession. Brown was double covered when Flacco let the ball go. By the time Brown chased it down in the end zone, both Steelers were two steps behind him and the Ravens were in front.Three snaps later Baltimore had the ball back thanks to a strip by safety Tony Jefferson. It took the Ravens just four plays to go up two touchdowns, when Flacco flipped the ball in the flat to a wide-open Collins. The score marked the 13th straight red-zone trip by Baltimore that ended with a Ravens touchdown, the longest streak to start a season in NFL history.Baltimore's 14th red-zone trip ended up far differently and briefly swung momentum. The Ravens had the ball at the Pittsburgh 2 with a chance to move ahead three scores when Steelers free safety Sean Davis ripped the ball from Collins and Pittsburgh rookie strong safety Terrell Edmunds recovered.Pittsburgh put together a lengthy drive that resulted in a Chris Boswell field goal to get within 14-6. The Steelers tied it with 2:50 left in the first half on a pretty 26-yard back-shoulder throw by Roethlisberger to Brown in the end zone and the ensuing 2-point conversion grab by Conner.Baltimore, however, kept coming as Pittsburgh crumbled.UP NEXTRavens: Visit Cleveland next Sunday.Steelers: Host Atlanta next Sunday. Pittsburgh has won its last two meetings against the Falcons.This story has been corrected to update Baltimore's next opponent as Cleveland, not Tennessee.
