The Baltimore Ravens recently gave Lamar Jackson a raise, but the quarterback is willing to change his style of play under new offensive coordinator Todd Monken.
On Wednesday, Jackson described gameplan changes made by Monken this spring to reporters a
"Just being able to throw the ball down the field," according to NFL.com's Kevin Patra.
And, given what I've seen so far, coach Todd Monken's offense is outstanding. Around the end of April,
Jackson agreed to terms with the Ravens on a five-year contract worth up to $260 million (with $185 million guaranteed), and head coach
John Harbaugh intimated that the 26-year-old would be allowed to play "Lamar ball" and "run when it's time to run" in competition.
The 2019 NFL MVP is on pace to finish with the most career rushing yards by a quarterback,
but he has also missed 11 games (including playoffs) due to injuries over the last two seasons.
