Trotting out onto the sphere for the primary day of coaching camp, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had not less than two new elements to his uniform. First, the gold define on the all-black QB jersey, which simply from the media’s sake was a welcome addition as a bunch of journalists every day tried to unravel which quarterback was who when checking the purple on black font. The second, and much more essential change, was the shortage of a play name wristband on Jackson’s forearm.
In line with the star quarterback, it was a choice made by Offensive Coordinator Todd Monken.
“I simply needed to study the terminology of the offense and simply study with out utilizing the wristband as a result of Coach Monken, he desires to ‘name it and haul it,’ and that’s what’s been to date,” Jackson mentioned.
When Jackson was requested if he will probably be with out the wristband for the season, he mentioned that’s down the highway.
“I’m not going to say that,” Jackson mentioned. “I’m saying for proper now, starting of coaching camp. I don’t know, the playbook would possibly get longer all through the method so we’ll see.”
