Former Philadelphia Eagles DC Castillo Joins Ravens Coaching Staff

In a move flying under the radar, the Baltimore Ravens quietly added former Philadelphia Eagles Defensive Coordinator Juan Castillo, as the running game consultant. Castillo, best known for his offensive mind, will now have the opportunity to get his first ring.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh worked with Castillo while in Philadelphia, and was a huge reason Castillo got the job in the first place.

With Castillo running the show in the “run game,” this can bode well for the San Francisco 49ers. It seems very likely, that the Ravens are scheming for a run heavy game-plan and a heavy dose of running back Ray Rice. If this is the case, you can bet 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh and company will be prepared for whatever the Ravens throw at them, as they may have tipped their hand, a little too early.
