Report: Lamar Jackson will visit Ravens

The Ravens signed Robert Griffin III on Thursday, and they have another quarterback scheduled to visit.

Baltimore will host Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson for one of the Ravens’ 30 national visits, Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reports.

It is expected to be one of Jackson’s final trips — if not his final trip — to a team facility before the draft, per Breer.

Cleveland and Miami also are among the teams reportedly on Jackson’s itinerary.

The Ravens’ interest in Jackson is interesting given they have Super Bowl-winning quarterback Joe Flacco under contract for four more seasons. But General Manager Ozzie Newsome and coach John Harbaugh both said Thursday that Griffin’s signing wouldn’t affect their draft plans, with a quarterback remaining a possibility.

Flacco is only 20-22 over the past three seasons with 52 touchdowns and 40 interceptions. The Ravens have not made the playoffs the past three seasons.

  1. REPORT:

    Lamar Jackson visits 32 teams.
    Tells 32 teams he will NOT work out for them at any other position except QB.
    Lamar Jackson thinks he is much better than he really is.
    Lamar Jackson plummets on draft day.
    Lamar Jackson represents himself and begins negotiations by announcing conditions to all teams. #1 . that he will NOT play any position except QB. #2 wants contract language stating he must be the starting QB by year two, or he can force trade.
    Lamar Jackson will be out of the league by year 3

  2. With Sam Darnold’s “limited” two (2) years of collegiate experience, I think he might make a fine wide receiver too, all Six-Foot-Four of him.

  3. If the Ravens draft Jackson, he’s got a shot at being the QB (at least in a fair competition). Flacco had that one good year and has done nothing since then. He’s vastly overrated and should be a backup somewhere instead of a starter. RG3 isn’t the answer. I’d love to see Jackson come in and win the QB job, but you know that won’t happen because Flacco is making all that money. The Ravens have to start him or they look like idiots for paying him waaay too much.

  4. It would be a good landing spot : he could play a ” Slash Stewart” role adding big play capability to a team sorely n need of it while being groomed as QB of future

    The Ravens got their money’s worth out of Joe. He won a Super Bowl. How many other teams can say that, that are paying as much or more for their starting QB?

    I think the Ravens know their going to move on…Joe might be clueless though
