Ravens OC Greg Roman resigns, Bucs fire OC Byron Leftwich

As the Falcons continue their search for a new defensive coordinator, several teams are now on the prowl for a new offensive play-caller. On Thursday, the Buccaneers fired offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich, and Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman stepped down.

Letfwich, a former NFL quarterback who spent one of his 10 seasons in Atlanta, was a popular head-coaching candidate during last year’s hiring cycle.

His firing after four seasons in Tampa Bay is a bit of a surprise, as NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport breaks down below.

As for Roman, his departure is not entirely surprising, but many wonder what it means for the future of Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. The former MVP thrived with Roman calling the plays and became one of the NFL’s true duel-threat quarterbacks.

Perhaps the two will reunite again on a different team. Jackson’s future in Baltimore is a complete unknown at this point, but it doesn’t seem like a long-term extension is going to happen anytime soon.

The Falcons have been thrown in the mix as a team that could potentially acquire Jackson if the Ravens look to move him this offseason.
