“Lamar Jackson is in our plans”: Ravens GM expresses confidence in QB’s future amid Odell Beckham Jr.’s addition

Lamar Jackson, the Baltimore Ravens’ quarterback, has been the centerpiece of the team’s success over the past few seasons. His explosive playmaking abilities have brought a new dimension to the team’s offense and made him one of the most exciting players to watch in the NFL.

With the recent addition of Odell Beckham Jr., some fans have begun to wonder if Jackson’s role on the team might be diminished. However, according to Ravens General Manager Eric DeCosta, that is far from the case. In fact, Jackson remains a critical part of the Ravens’ plans moving forward.

During a press conference, Ravens General Manager Eric DeCosta and Coach John Harbaugh avoided talking about Lamar Jackson, who was unsigned at the time. However, during the recent introduction of Beckham, there were no restrictions on Lamar-related questions. And DeCosta made it clear that the Ravens still want him.

He emphasized that Lamar is in their plans, they love him, and their feelings have not changed since the end of the season.

DeCosta shared he hasn’t talked to Lamar Jackson

 

Ravens GM shared that he has not talked to Jackson since the signing of Beckham.

“I have not talked to Lamar since the signing (of Beckham). There’s been interaction along the way,” general manager Eric DeCosta said. “We’re hopeful still that we’ll get a long-term deal done. He’s the right player for this team to lead us to where we want to be.”

The signing of Beckham speaks volumes, even though he did not get any assurances from Jackson that they would be playing together in Baltimore. The Ravens recently acquired Beckham on a one-year deal worth up to $18 million, including $15 million guaranteed.

This agreement raised questions about whether Beckham knew Jackson would be the quarterback this season or whether the addition of the star wide receiver would make it easier for the Ravens to keep their franchise quarterback.

When asked if Jackson wants to return, DeCosta said there has been communication since then. But it would not be smart to talk about the details as they decided together not to discuss those things personally. However, the Ravens only think of Lamar as the quarterback of the team. And they are hopeful to get a deal done.

Fans have got a little assurance but we will have to wait to see what decisions the team will make and how good those decisions will be for their future.
