The Baltimore Ravens made a series of major moves to add weapons around quarterback Lamar Jackson, whom they recently locked up to a long-term deal.

Baltimore added receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Nelson Agholor and Zay Flowers.

The offense already included players like J.K. Dobbins, Mark Andrews, Rashod Bateman, Devin Duvernay, Gus Edwards and Isaiah Likely.

First-year offensive coordinator Todd Monken, fresh off a collegiate national championship with the Georgia Bulldogs, referenced how cookies taste better with sugar than vinegar in proclaiming his goal to “surround yourself with sugar” on offense.

“I think the more talented you are around your quarterback, the less he has to burden — take on that burden — shoulder the load, because you’re excited about getting others the football where they can utilize their skill set,” Monken said, via the team’s website. “As you get further into your career, as Lamar gets older — as everybody does — you want to take some of that off of the player as best you can. But he has a unique trait, a unique skill set. You can’t take that completely out of his toolbox because that’s a huge weapon for him and for us, is using his feet.”

Jackson previously said he wanted to throw “for like 6,000 yards” after the addition of OBJ to the offense, but it sounds like the under might be the safe bet in this situation if Monken has anything to say about it.
