Breaking: Lamar Jackson Gives Ravens Star WR He’d Like To Pair With

With the recent signing of a gigantic five-year, $260 million contract that contained $185 million in total guarantees, Lamar Jackson—the two-time NFL MVP and three-time AFC Pro Bowler—became the highest-paid quarterback and player in NFL history.

Baltimore traded up to choose Jackson in the first round (32nd overall) in the 2018 NFL Draft in order to acquire the gifted quarterback. It was a bold move that has paid off handsomely.

Because of the Ravens’ recent success, the coaching staff and front office will greatly value your ideas and trust. In particular, head coach John Harbaugh has spoken up for Jackson on numerous occasions and given Lamar the freedom to decide whether to go for it on fourth down, and it has worked out.

The Ravens picked Boston College wide receiver Zay Flowers with the 22nd overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft during the previous season. Lamar Jackson was one of the main reasons Flowers was chosen, and this is what he had to say about the Ravens choosing Flowers.

“When I was a young football player, I heard about Zay Flowers.” They would frequently discuss “the little kid; No. 4,” “No. 7,” or similar topics. I had heard nothing but good things about Zay, and even in college and high school, he was the same man. And I thought, “Man, he” when I watched him on tape and other similar things. Despite the fact that his Boston College squad wasn’t They weren’t very good. They weren’t all that, although I don’t want to put it like that. (laughing) But Zay took full advantage of it. [He] made the most of his opportunities, and he just showed it. He was the same guy from youth football all the way up until now. So, I just put a bug in [executive vice president & general manager] Eric [DeCosta]’s ear; I was like, ‘Man, we need to go get him,’ and he just did the rest.

Now that Zay Flowers played a significant role in the Ravens’ 2023–2024 success, the team is once again considering Jackson’s wide receiver recommendations for the 2024 NFL Draft.

Coach John Harbaugh said

 “Lamar Jackson has told the organization about a few of the WRs that he likes coming out in the draft.”

With Devin Duvernay and Odell Beckham Jr. departing via free agency, the Ravens are hoping to add additional support at wide receiver. The draft is crucial, but they’ve also recently welcomed guests like Josh Reynolds and Michael Gallup.
