Greg Roman: “Definitely” some new things for Lamar Jackson to learn in offense

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson responded to comments Chris Simms made on PFT Live about the quarterback’s absence from the team’s OTAs by downplaying the impact and saying that he’ll “be there” at some point.

That point was not Wednesday, which left offensive coordinator Greg Roman to continue working with backup Tyler Huntley and other players on the team’s offensive preparations. Roman declined to comment on any conversations he might have had with Jackson, but did say that there will be some learning for the quarterback to do once he does rejoin the team.

“I went back and changed some things and added some things,” Roman said, via the team’s website. “There’s definitely some things that are new, that we haven’t done. There are also a bunch of things that he’s pretty well adjusted to. It’s probably 80 percent stuff he knows, 20 percent stuff that we’re looking forward to working on.”

It remains unclear when Jackson and the Ravens will begin working together on those tweaks to the offense and the result of that work will do much to determine whether conversation about Jackson’s offseason routine lingers into the regular season.

    Like throwing? And holding a clipboard?

    Sounds like an opportunity to bring in CKap for a workout, oh wait, they tried that…

  3. Wehn Roman was the OC of the Bills, they led the NFL in rushing. Jackson needs to have a good running game around him. He’s not out there to throw 40 + passes per game. Balance.

  5. It’s as if Lamar is the first player to ever miss OTAs. The level of scrutiny for this dude is extraordinary. Only an injury stops him from making the playoffs every year. Won MVP and has the most wins in NFL history of any player his age. But listening to you guys, you would think he’s had a garbage career and Ryan Fitzpatrick has won 5 superbowls.

  6. The education he needs right now is the hire an agent to negotiate his contract. A guy who literally won’t engage in contract discussions with the team doesn’t have an education on the concept!

  7. Definitely a lot for running backs like Jackson to learn in the complex offensive schemes being utilized today.

  8. Jackson is done. He’s fun to watch, but he’ll never win big. It’s been proven time and time again. If you can’t pass from the pocket in the NFL, you’ll never make it long term. Cam Newton is arguably the most impressive athlete to ever play QB, in terms of size, speed, agility. As soon as his legs went, he was done, because he was never good in the pocket.

  9. The people defending Lamar’s inability to win when it matters (the playoffs) are quite adorable.

  10. “It’s as if Lamar is the first player to ever miss OTAs. The level of scrutiny for this dude is extraordinary.”

    Not really. ARod is getting lit up in the media for skipping. He is a starting QB (and a good one at that). That position comes with a ton of scrutiny

    All true, Lamar has already had a pretty nice career. However, his 2021 numbers were 16 TD’s and 13 Int’s. His QBR was only 50.7, he was sacked 38 times for 190 yards lost, sacked on 9% of pass attempts. You could argue that the 2021 numbers were down because of team injuries or Lamar’s own injuries, some of that is valid.
    I hope Lamar has a long career, he’s fun to watch when he’s healthy – but history has shown that running QB’s don’t have a long shelf life. Can he pass like other elite QB’s? Can he reads defenses like the elite QB’s? If not, his performance will continue to decline.

    With literally half the team on IR.

  13. I’m honestly more skeptical of Roman then Lamar at this point. Any Ravens fan watching this team for the last 4 years can tell you one of 4-5 plays they run every time. Roman, while great at the run, has a longer track record of flounder ring in developing a passing attack then Lamar does. He flamed out in SF , Buffalo and here also in development of a balanced game plan.
    I still think they should have let Roman go and truly see if Lamar can be balanced under another OC before potentially giving a large contract. I guess we’ll never know now.
