Lamar Jackson says Ravens’ new-look offense looks ‘tremendous’
Star quarterback Lamar Jackson has cemented his future with the Baltimore Ravens behind his historic five-year, $260 million deal.
One of the biggest questions concerning the upcoming season will be the Ravens’ offensive game plan. Jackson revealed that the offense will feature a notable shift.
“Less running and more throwing,” Jackson said when asked what this offense will allow him to showcase via ESPN.

Throughout his tenure with the Ravens, the offense has had a heavy emphasis on running the ball. Jackson has excelled behind that game plan, pushing him to 4,437 carer rushing yards, which is the most for any quarteback in their first five seasons.
However, that has led to Jackson suffering injuries over the last two seasons that have cost him significant playing time. The Ravens have much reason to shift to more passing after revamping the wide receiver corp headlined by free-agent additions Odell Beckham Jr. and Nelson Agholor and 2023 first-round draft selection Zay Flowers.

Along with that, the departure of former offensive coordinator Greg Roman will see a different game plan philosophy.
“Running can only take you so far,” Jackson said. “And I feel like with this new era of teams and offenses in the league, I feel like we need that. Coach Todd Monken, what I’m seeing in his offense so far, is looking tremendous.”
The Ravens will only go as far as Jackson will take them. The offensive change and improved roster around the star quarterback could be what elevates Baltimore back toward Super Bowl contention.
