Baltimore Ravens to Interview Broncos Offensive Coordinator Outten for OC

The Baltimore Ravens are looking to the league's worst offense for an answer to their offensive coordinator vacancy. According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, the Ravens will interview Denver Broncos OC Justin Outten. Outten took over as offensive coordinator for the Broncos in 2021 and led the team to a disastrous last-place finish in points scored. Before that, he served as tight ends coach for the Green Bay Packers from 2019 to 2021, years in which the team finished 15th, first, and 10th in points scored.

Outten's first season as an OC was a colossal disappointment, but his specialization in tight ends could match up well with the Ravens' roster. Pro Bowl tight end Mark Andrews is the premier offensive weapon on the team, and 2022 139th overall pick tight end Isaiah Likely is the most promising rookie on the roster. 

Outten's hiring would be an underwhelming move for a Ravens team that should consider itself a contender. Rumors have begun to circulate that quarterback Lamar Jackson could be on the move; perhaps the Ravens are strapping in for a long rebuild.
