[BN] Blitz newsletter: Josh Allen will have a new quarterbacks coach in Year 2

The Ravens appear to have hired away Bills quarterbacks coach David Culley, naming him their assistant head coach/receivers/passing coordinator. Culley was still listed on the Bills' website when the Ravens made the announcement.

It's a one-of-a-kind title, but it fits for Culley, who has most of his coaching experience working with receivers. Culley worked with Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Andy Reid's Eagles staffs in the early 2000s.

The Bills now have an opening for an important position on the staff: The coach directly responsible for developing Josh Allen.

Allen had more success as a rookie than many observers predicted but still has much to learn and will need an experienced teacher to help him reach his full potential. One name floated online Tuesday was Jordan Palmer, the quarterback coach Allen works with on his own, but it's unknown if he'd be willing to leave his quarterback academy to join on full-time with a team, or if Sean McDermott would want to bring him onboard.

Former Bills LB Ramon Humber chasing first ring with Patriots: Patriots coach Bill Belichick has a way of getting the most out of journeymen players by giving them a limited but defined role aimed at utilizing what the player does best. Add Ramon Humber to the list: The Bills cut the linebacker midway through the season, but the Patriots jumped on him, utilizing him as a core special teamer. "It’s so undervalued, what that decade of playing brings to you," Patriots special teams coordinator Joe Judge said. "A situation arises in a game, and he can draw on his past experiences to make the right decision in the heat of battle.”

Ex-Bills special teams coach Danny Crossman reportedly lands with Dolphins: Crossman spent the last six years with the Bills but was fired after the season.
