Throughout his NFL career, Baltimore Ravens star quarterback Lamar Jackson has made his mark on the league as one of the most dominant runners in the history of the league at the quarterback position. But even though he’s made his mark on the league with his legs, it sounds like he plans to take a slightly different approach this upcoming season.
During a press conference this week, Lamar Jackson was asked how the new Baltimore Ravens offense will change the way he plays the game, and he had a pretty clear message: “less running and more throwing.”
“Absolutely. Especially with the receivers we have. . . . Just being able to throw the ball down the field. Running can only take you so far,” Jackson said according to Pro Football Talk. “I feel like with this new era of teams and offenses in the league, I feel like we need that, and coach Todd Monken, what I’m seeing in this offense so far, it’s tremendous.”
Obviously, this would be a huge change for Jackson as he has averaged more than 60 rushing yards per game each of his last four seasons. It will certainly be interesting to see how he adjusts his game this season.
