Lamar Jackson hosts workout with wide receivers

Entering his first season as the starting quarterback, Lamar Jackson has already took a leadership role with his Ravens teammates.

Jackson, 22, held a workout with fellow teammates Willie Snead IV, Chris Moore, and backup quarterback Robert Griffin III at his “Fun Day With LJ” kids camp.

It’s no secret that Jackson’s passing game needs more improvement from a season ago. In his rookie season, Jackson completed just 58.2% of his passes and attempted just 170 throws in seven starts.

Seeing Jackson and Griffin III working with receivers is a positive sight. The Ravens lost two of their top three leaders in receiving yards, with John Brown in Buffalo and Michael Crabtree still a free agent.

Snead IV racked up the second-most receiving yards with 651 yards and a touchdown in 2018. As for Moore, he caught just 19 receptions and 196 yards in limited action. With Brown and Crabtree out of town, both Snead IV and Moore appear poised to get more looks.

With minicamp ending more than two weeks ago, head coach John Harbaugh reiterated how important training with teammates is “very valuable work” ahead of training camp.

For Jackson and the receivers, the more work they can get together the better.
