QB Lamar Jackson Having Some Issues in the First Ravens OTA of 2019

Second-year Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson admits he is still having problems throwing the ball consistently according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com.

Hensley noted “several” of Jackson’s passes “wobbled through the air” at the first week of OTAs. And Jackson agreed that things just aren’t right yet from an accuracy standpoint.

“It’s been crazy. It’s been everywhere,” Jackson said of his throws. “I feel like my hand is a little too high on the football and that makes the ball go out of whack a lot.”

The Ravens are changing up their whole offense under new offensive coordinator Greg Roman, and at the same time, Jackson is obviously trying to fix his mechanics to become a better passer in a passing league. It’s going to be a work in progress and something that may truly never get totally fixed.

Jackson’s legs and leadership skills partly compensate for the iffy passing but, if Baltimore wants to return to the playoffs, Jackson has to improve upon his 58.2 percent completion rate and his 159.1 yards passing per game as a starter.

  1. We were all told by the coach that our quarterback was working with receivers during the off season to improve his passing. Evidently we got false information they say he’s just as bad as last year; no improvement at all. Same old B/S coming from coach Harbaugh. Frank Kalitya
