Only smiles and focus in Baltimore Ravens‘ camp. People say after rain there’s a rainbow, and morning it’s after night… and that’s literally what happened with the Ravens. After turning Lamar Jackson into the highest paid player ever in NFL history, the franchise that will be fighting to win the AFC North division can enjoy a full unity in the team.
After skipping the voluntary practices last year, Baltimore’s quarterback has joined the OTAs (Organized Team Activities) just one day after they began. Lamar Jackson attended the team’s Owings Mills facility on Wednesday and was spotted on the field with the Ravens for the first time after his left knee’s PCL strain during the lasts weeks of the 2022 season on December.
With his arrival and his brand new 5-year-deal and $260 million contract, Lamar Jackson has left all the drama he got involved while pressuring the team for a significant adjust in his salary, and stands ready to take orders from the new offensive coordinator Todd Monken.
Lamar wants to compete with Bengals for divisional title
After being eliminated by Cincinnati Bengals during the Wild Card round last season, in which Tyler Huntley finish as the starting quarterback due to Jackson’s injury, the Baltimore Ravens are getting ready to take revenge with an offense that all teams should be scared of. With their new receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Nelson Agholor, and 2023 draft’s first-round pick Zay Flowers, the Ravens prepare to compete side-by-side with the Bengals for the division title.
Along with Beckham, Agholor and Flowers, proven quality players like tight end Mark Andrews, running backs Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins, and other receivers like Rashod Bateman and Devin Duvernay, Lamar Jackson is set and ready to target Baltimore as a strong contender for a Super Bowl, a game they haven’t reach in the last ten years.
