Former Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson has been among the most talked about players in the lead up to the 2018 NFL Draft. Questions have arisen about the Heisman winner’s ability to play quarterback. He decided against running the 40 at both the NFL Scouting Combine and Louisville’s Pro Day.
And on the very same day as he took to the field with his former teammates in Kentucky, reports surfaced that teams are having a hard time contacting Jackson for workouts ahead of the draft.
Well, it seems the talented quarterback responded to those reports and more on Saturday morning.
I would like to thank all 32 teams for coming out to my pro day and for those that met with me before my pro day on my pro day and for those that are scheduled to meet with me after my pro day thank you all‼️

“Yes. Thank you…And people please don’t believe everything you hear or read. Sometimes it’s from a limited perspective.”
Needless to say, Jackson has been paying attention to the media and how its covering him. The latest reports suggesting he’s been hard to reach for workouts could have very well came from NFL player agents.
Remember, Jackson has decided against hiring an agent for the pre-draft process. This obviously isn’t going to sit well within the confines of that industry.
In any event, Jackson is fighting back in his own way. That can’t be seen as a bad thing.
