Good luck trying to tackle Lamar Jackson in 2022.
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is entering the most important season of his young career as his rookie contract set to expire in 2023 and he is showing no desire to get a deal done before the new season begins.
The good news for Jackson is that he’s arguably in the best shape of his life.
On Wednesday night, Jackson posted a photo of himself on Twitter and it went viral as he looks incredibly jacked in it.
He has played at 205 to 208 pounds in the past but has bulked up to 220 pounds this offseason.
“I just wanted to do it [to] see how it looks [and] see how I feel, and I feel good,” he said late last month.
Since being drafted by the Raves in 2018, Jackson has a 37-12 record as the team’s starter. During that span, he has 9,967 passing yards, 3,673 rushing yards, and 105 total touchdowns
Last year, Jackson completed 246 of 382 passes for 2,882 yards and 16 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. He was also sacked a career-high 38 times.
