The Baltimore Ravens offense is set to look drastically different from the 2022 season.
They’ve brought in Todd Monken as their new OC, who could shake up the entire system.
Along with Monken, one of the most significant adds for the offense was Odell Beckham Jr.
Beckham was brought in as an elite receiving option for Lamar Jackson.
According to recent reports from Pro Football Talk, Jackson and Beckham have already established a great rapport.
“I feel our chemistry, it’s there,” Jackson said.

Beckham was last seen in an NFL game during the 2021 Super Bowl.
If he’s fully healthy, and the Ravens implement a more pass-friendly approach, just how high is Beckham’s ceiling?
Jackson is known as a rush-first quarterback and hasn’t ever been among the league leaders in passing attempts.
2019 was Jackson’s career-high in passing attempts, throwing 401 balls throughout the season.
This resulted in an MVP award for Jackson, who combined his passing prowess and rushing ability.
During that season, Jackson’s top receiving option was Mark Andrews, who was targeted 98 times.
Assuming Beckham is a top-two target-getter in this offense, he could see at least 75 targets, especially with Monken’s system.
If that’s the case, the sky is truly the limit for the Ravens for the 2023 season.
They are looking to break through in a crowded AFC, something they haven’t been able to do during the Jackson era.
The AFC North could be theirs for the taking, especially if the Cincinnati Bengals struggle early due to potential Joe Burrow injury concerns.NEXT: Lamar Jackson, OBJ Connection In Full Effect In Joint Practice
