John Harbaugh Confident ‘It’s Gonna Work Out’ With QB Jackson

Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson is ‘durable’ enough to lead the Ravens into the future, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

There are currently a couple of questions surrounding Lamar Jackson, but only from outside the organization. As far as everyone who works with him is concerned, Lamar Jackson is the guy.

This is the second straight postseason Jackson has sat out due to injury, leading to speculation that his ball-running style leaves him susceptible. 

However, both his 2021 and 2022 injuries were sustained while trying to pass, not run.

The Ravens also sound relatively confident of securing Jackson with a contract extension in spite of the lack of progress so far. 

“One hundred percent, 200 percent. There’s no question about it,” John Harbaugh said Thursday. “Lamar Jackson is our quarterback. He’s been our quarterback. Everything that we’ve done in terms of building our offense and building our team, how we think in terms of putting people around him is based on this incredible young man, his talent, his ability and his competitiveness.

The team is taking steps to appease him, including firing offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

“I love Lamar, (general manager) Eric (DeCosta) loves Lamar, and it’s not gonna change in the future. I don’t know anything about the details or the whole thing, but I know one thing: I’m like all the fans out there and everybody else. I’ll have my fingers crossed, my toes crossed and I’ll be saying prayers. I have faith it’s gonna get done, and we’ve got the best people in the world doing it. … Eric wants him here, I want him here, Steve wants him here, and Lamar wants to be here. it’s gonna work out.”
