The Baltimore Ravens appear to be ready for the first start of Lamar Jackson’s NFL career in NFL Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Jamison Hensley of ESPN reported Friday that, “While the Ravens probably won’t name a starting QB today, the most likely scenario for Sunday is starting rookie first-round pick Lamar Jackson and mixing in Robert Griffin III for some series and special packages.”
However, starting Jackson does make a ton of sense. He’s looked good in limited action this year, and the franchise better get used to seeing him under center going forward. And if he struggles, then RG3 is there to pick up the slack.
Jackson was the last pick of the first round this past April and has the tools to become a franchise passer, and Flacco’s eventual successor.
