Lamar Jackson Career
- Jackson made the announcement on January 5, 2018, that he would be participating in the 2018 NFL Draft. Although some draft analysts questioned Jackson’s ability to play quarterback and urged that he switch positions to wide receiver owing to his athleticism, Jackson was firm about his desire to play quarterback at the professional level.
- During the NFL Scouting Combine, he chose to concentrate on demonstrating his passing talents rather than participating in any of the running events, such as the 40-yard sprint. In 2017, when competing for Louisville, Jackson reportedly ran a 40-yard sprint in a time of 4.34 seconds.
- Jackson made his debut in the National Football League by taking over for starting quarterback Joe Flacco in the second half of the Ravens’ 47–3 victory over the Buffalo Bills in the season opener. Jackson finished the game with 24 passing yards and 39 rushing yards.
- Jackson scored his first touchdown in the National Football League during Week 7 on a run of 1 yard, but the Baltimore Ravens still ended up losing to the New Orleans Saints by a score of 23–24.
- Jackson started his first game in the National Football League on November 18, 2018, against the Cincinnati Bengals. He did so in place of the injured Joe Flacco, who had suffered a hip injury two weeks earlier when playing against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
- During the game, which the Ravens won 24–21, Jackson completed 13 of 19 passes for 150 yards, had one interception, and carried for 117 yards, which set a franchise record for the most rushing yards by a quarterback in a single game for the Ravens.
- In Week 16, Jackson was instrumental in the Ravens’ victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. He completed 12 of 22 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens’ shocking victory by a score of 22–10.
- During the first game of the season, Jackson led the Miami Dolphins to a 59–10 victory on the road by completing 17 of 20 passes for a career-high 324 yards and five touchdowns.
- His perfect passer rating made him the youngest quarterback in NFL history to achieve this feat. As a result of his performance, he was awarded the title of AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
- Jackson completed 20 of 25 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns in the Ravens’ season-opening victory over the Cleveland Browns. The score of the game was 38–6 in the Ravens’ favor. As a result of his effort, he was recognized as the Offensive Player of the Week for the AFC.
- During the third game of the season, which was a loss by a score of 20–34 to the Kansas City Chiefs, Jackson threw for a career-low 97 yards and a touchdown.
- On April 30, 2021, the Ravens decided to take advantage of the fifth-year option that was included in Jackson’s contract, which was worth a guaranteed sum of $23 million for the 2022 campaign. Around the time that Jackson started training camp, he received the news that he had COVID-19. This was the second time that he had contracted the virus.
- Jackson was designated as the recipient of the non-exclusive franchise tag by the Ravens on March 7, 2023. Twenty days later, on April 8, Jackson revealed to the public via his personal Twitter account that he had sought a trade on March 2, claiming that the front office of the Ravens “has not been interested in meeting my value” during discussions for a long-term contract.
- Jackson’s comments came after he had indicated that the Ravens’ front office had “not been interested in meeting my value.” The impasse was broken on April 27, 2023, when Jackson signed a five-year contract with a total value of $260 million and a guarantee of $185 million of that sum.
- Jackson threw for a season-high 357 yards and three touchdowns while leading the Baltimore Ravens to a 38–6 victory over the Detroit Lions in Week 7. He finished with a passer rating of 155.8, which is very close to a perfect score.
- In addition to that, he rushed for 36 yards and scored a touchdown, which was enough to earn him the distinction of AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
