Lamar Jackson thinks Marquise Brown’s “going to show off” this year

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is still harboring hopes of playing with Antonio Brown this season, but he will have a member of Brown’s family on hand whether Baltimore signs the free agent or not.

Marquise Brown is Antonio Brown’s cousin and the 2019 first-round pick spent time working out with the quarterback in Florida during the offseason. That gave Jackson insight into how Brown is progressing after dealing with a Lisfranc injury throughout last season.

Like others around the team and Brown himself, Jackson believes that return to health will pay off with big things for the wideout.

“I feel like he’s going to have a huge jump, more than people may think,” Jackson said, via the team’s website. “He was hurt last year, people didn’t know that, but he went out there and battled his tail off each and every game on a messed up foot. Now his full potential is going to show this year I feel. He’s still young, but he’s going to show off. My job is to get the ball out quicker, because he’s a lot faster with that foot 100 percent.”

Jackson also worked out with draft picks James Proche and Devin Duvernay this spring and thinks both players can have a positive impact on the offense. That may be the case, but a breakout year for Brown would provide a little more time for both of them to adapt to life in the NFL.

  1. I’m not sure why anyone thinks that Lame is a judge of receivers. Getting the ball to them is the last thing on his mind as he tries to be a one man team.

  2. Lamar is my most overrated player for this year. One year wonder. Cant pass, is a runner. Defensive coordinators got a years worth of film on him. They stopped Kaep, RG3, even Mahomes wasforced into being a passer. He is no Wilson, big mouth, with a big mouth mom, asking to bringing in a locker room cancer. He just lucked out that he replaced the most overrated Super Bowl QB of all time in Flacco.

  3. It is really hard for me to believe that Lamar is saying all these things. Have any of you ever seen him or listen to him talk. My point exactly.

  4. I agree with him here but disagree with him on AB. They already have Marquise, reliable Willie Snead, Miles Boykin who flashed when he wasn’t just asked to block last year, and the aforementioned rookies who were among the FBS leaders in catches last year. Throw in Mark Andrews and backs catching outta the backfield and there is no room for AB. Not to mention the potential of headaches for the team still.

  5. I think he will have a big year as a passer. Once he gets a little better reading coverages & identifying blitzes it’s an an easy pitch & catch 7 on 7 drill anytime he wants to pass. You can’t play man against them, can’t rush the passer aggressively, and have to gear up to stop the run.

  6. 66% Completion percentage, 36 TD’s, 6 INT in his first full season as a starter. HUGE improvement from rookie year to 2nd year. Works hard on his craft, has fun, great teammate. Expect continued improvement as a result of his work ethic.

    Some of the “football geniuses” commenting on here need to stop, they’re just embarrassing themselves. Based on their analysis, a player can’t get better each year, and once ANY team loses a game the rest of the league “has them figured out” now. As if teams don’t make adjustments. Just stop.

  7. AB will not be happy in this high school offense. He went from Big Ben to Brady, no way he will be happy in Baltimore. Just happy to get a paycheck that’s it.

    …while I agree with the sentiment that Jackson will likely see a dip in production due to more film on him. Saying Mahomes at any point was a runner is ludicrous. In 2 years as a starter he averaged 17.0 rush yards per game in 2018, and 15.6 last year.

  9. So, Stafford, Ryan, Rivers, Cousins hasn’t been figured out? What does that even mean? Kaep was figured out on his way to SB and mutiple NFC championship games. You guys are laughable with these statements.

    Colin Kaepernick rode the coattails of a stellar defense, a good coach, and a solid running game to one Super Bowl appearance and two NFC title appearances.
    One can argue his FOUR turnovers against Seattle in the NFC championship game was the biggest factor that kept San Francisco from a second Super Bowl appearance.

  11. More nonsense. Most all SB QB winners have great defenses. D coordinators fear running QBs. That should tell you something. Cam beat NE twice. These guys have more success than the average drop back QB. Get a clue.

  12. Thank you Mike Vrabel for giving the rest of the NFL the blueprint. Jackson is and will be a one hit wonder, his diagnosis of a defense is terrible and his accuracy sucks. And… he lost to the a titans at Homr…

    Unfortunately the “blueprint” can’t be replicated. Not every team has Derrick Henry to beat the defense into submission and Ravens won’t have 3 turnovers every game.

    Titans had 217 rush yards to Ravens 185
    Titans had 83 passing yards to Ravens 345
    Titans had 300 total yards to Ravens 530
    Titans had 0 turnovers to Ravens 3

    The Ravens beat themselves
