Over the past few years, the Baltimore Ravens have become known for their run-first mentality, especially given the running ability of dynamic quarterback Lamar Jackson. But according to new Ravens receiver Odell Beckham Jr., it sounds like that could be changing this year.
During a recent interview session, Odell Beckham Jr. made it clear that he expects the Baltimore Ravens offense to throw the ball more under new offensive coordinator Todd Monken.
“I definitely think [Monken] wants to throw the ball, and we’ve got a lot of talented guys,” Beckham said in his press conference according to Pro Football Talk. “So, I think, just finding ways to get the playmakers the ball in their hands and be an explosive offense — that’s what stands out the most.
“As things progress — and obviously, we play in September, [so] we still have some time here to work out the kinks and get each and every play and concept down — I think that this will be a very explosive offense. It’s an explosive team, as well. But specifically with the offense, I think that’s the goal, is to be explosive.”
We’ll certainly have to see how the Ravens offense looks this season compared to previous years.
