About a week ago, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh made it known that offensive coordinator Cam Cameron would be back with the team for the 2012 season.


Wednesday, owner Steve Bisciotti and general manager Ozzie Newsome showed their support for Cameron as well. However, Newsome declined to say whether Cameron’s new contract was for one-year or longer, The Baltimore Sun reports.

“I always look at a body of work,” Newsome said, via The Baltimore Sun. “Are we headed in the right direction with this offense? And Steve has some unbelievable numbers that he just showed me that prove that we are headed in the right direction. Are we satisfied with where we are right now? No, but we think the best way to get there is to maintain the continuity of having Cam and then to bring in someone like [quarterbacks coach] Jim Caldwell to be another set of eyes with that.”

Harbaugh said he felt content if he had to go into next season without a quarterbacks coach. But, when Caldwell, the former head coach and quarterbacks coach of the Indianapolis Colts who mentored quarterback Peyton Manning became available, Harbaugh said it was “very obvious” he was a “perfect fit.”

“It’s going to be the best thing for everybody, offensively, and just for the growth of our offense,” Harbaugh said. “It’s not so much Joe. Joe is a part of that, sure. But [it’s for] all of our offense.”
