After parting ways with offensive coordinator Greg Roman earlier this offseason, the Baltimore Ravens have a chance to start fresh on offense with a new OC. It's a welcome change after four seasons with Roman, whose run-centric offense was starting to grow stale.

Ravens tight end Mark Andrews has some thoughts on what Baltimore should be looking for in its search to replace Roman.

Not surprisingly, Andrews wants to see the Ravens hire someone with more of a pass-heavy approach. He's arguably the second-best tight end in the league after Travis Kelce, so obviously more targets would benefit him on an individual level.

Beyond that, though, throwing the ball more could help Baltimore become a more attractive destination for receiving talent. Andrews implied that wide receivers have been reluctant to join the Ravens because they knew their stats would suffer and they wouldn't be heavily involved in the offense.

Incorporating more pass plays would also help Baltimore unlock more of its offense and keep up with pass-heavy teams such as the Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills, all of whom have dominated the AFC in recent seasons. A more dynamic passing attack could help put the Ravens over the top and get them back to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2013.

So depending on who the front office ends up hiring, Baltimore's offense could look very different next year.
