Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh had his work cut out for him at his recent interview during the NFL Scouting Combine.  After Ray Rice and his fiancee were both charged with assault-domestic violence charges in Atlantic City, Harbaugh assured reporters that Rice will remain with the team.

Nonetheless, Harbaugh also revealed that the team intends to add a new running back or two for next season. Does this have anything to do with Rice?

“That’s unrelated,” Harbaugh said. “I just don’t feel like two runners [last season] was enough. The circumstances kind of led us to that with our roster. We never felt like we wanted just two runners. We definitely need three, and it could be four of them. It doesn’t have to be a certain big guy, little guy, fast guy, slow guy. It’s all kinds of different types of backs. We want to get a good guy with good vision, who will run hard and protect the football. Ray can do it. Bernard can do it.”

No matter who the Ravens bring in next year, Harbaugh also pointed out that the offensive line also needs to block much better.
