DEC 7 RAVENS COORDINATORS TO HEAD COACHING JOBS? Over the past two offseasons, the Baltimore Ravens have had to separately fill the respective defensive and offensive coordinator spots. Come this winter/spring, they may have to fill both.

Anonymous NFL executives hinted to Jason La Canfora of the Washington Post that Mike Macdonald and Todd Monken, the respective heads of the Ravens’ defense and offense, could find themselves promoted to the top spot come this offseason.

“I think they’re both getting (head coaching) jobs,” one general manager told La Canfora. “(Head coach) John (Harbaugh) has to know that’s a real possibility. They’re both going to get interviews.”

Another unnamed executive said that Monken, in his first season at the helm of Baltimore’s offense, could have the inside edge thanks to prior experience: Monken spent three seasons wearing the top headset at the University of Southern Mississippi and he also two national championship rings from his time as the Georgia Bulldogs’ offense coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

“Baltimore is going to lose them both. I like the OC more than the DC,” the latter executive said. “The OC is going to be somebody’s head coach, man. He’s done it (at Southern Mississippi) before. His offense was great at Georgia. He’s ready.”

DEC 6 RAMS SIGN MASON CROSBY BEFORE RAVENS GAME The Baltimore Ravens could face a new kicker when the Los Angeles Rams come to town this weekend.

The Rams announced that they have signed 16-year veteran Mason Crosby to the practice squad.

Crosby, 39, kicked in every game for the Green Bay Packers from 2007-22. Now, he could join the Rams as they fight for a playoff spot.

The Ravens host the Rams on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.

DEC 5 WALTER PAYTON MAN OF THE YEAR NOMINEE The Baltimore Ravens have announced starting inside linebacker Roquan Smith was nominated as their Walter Payton Man of the Year candidate, via the team’s official Twitter account Tuesday.

The Walter Payton Man of the Year award “recognizes an NFL player for his excellence on and off the field. Smith is one of 32 nominees for the award which was last won by Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott. The winner will be announced on February 8 during the NFL Honors which will air live on CBS at 9 p.m. (EST).

DEC 4 REED PULLS FOR CLEVELANDER FLACCO One Baltimore Raven is delivering an olive branch to the Cleveland Browns in the wake of recent events.

Ravens great Ed Reed is among the many watching the Browns with great interest after his former AFC North divisional rival added his ex-teammate Joe Flacco under center. Flacco, the longtime franchise quarterback in Charm City and Super Bowl XLVI MVP, made his orange-helmeted debut on Sunday in the wake of injuries to starters Deshaun Watson and Dorian Thompson-Robinson as the Browns fight for an elusive playoff spot.

“It might be a Cinderella thing,” Reed declared in a conversation with NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. “It might be awesome if Joe can get them to the playoffs.”

Reed outright pulling from the Browns and Flacco dressing in Cleveland colors might prove equally shocking to Ravens fans, but the former assured supporters that it could always be worse.

“It’s not like he’s going to the Steelers, man!” Reed said in regards to those worried about Flacco committing treason. “He’s somewhere that actually has a connection to Baltimore.”

Reed, of course, refers to the Ravens’ 1996 formation that spawned from the Browns’ controversial move away from Cleveland. The history of the franchise remained in Ohio while the Ravens have been regarded as a de facto expansion franchise. Baltimore has dominated the ensuing divisional rivalry to the tune of a 36-14 record since Cleveland’s return, though the two sides split the season series this time around.
