However, he did complete 64 percent of his passes last season.
He also had a 400-yard passing game and played at an MVP level until he suffered an ankle injury.
Jackson had to play his best to give the Ravens a chance to win.
His injury proved to be costly as Baltimore missed the playoffs for the first time during his era.
But aside from the fact he sat out five games, the Ravens need more help in their wide receiver depth chart.
That’s why he was trying to recruit Seattle Seahawks wide out D.K. Metcalf

Jackson responded to a Twitter user who asked, “#RavensFlock, how would y’all feel about bringing in @dkm14?”
His reply: “@dkm14 slide We got them Guyz, but you can slide to we welcome everyone here with open arms you definitely one of them Guyz as well.”
Metcalf hasn’t responded to Jackson’s reach-out, probably because he is still under contract with the Seattle Seahawks.
The Ravens Must Negotiate With Seattle To Get Metcalf
It’s hard to believe Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll’s statements.
He did publicly declare that Russell Wilson wouldn’t be traded.
As it turned out, the longtime Seahawks quarterback is now with the Denver Broncos.
Likewise, he said that Metcalf would remain with the Seahawks.
Seeing what happened with Wilson, could it be that Metcalf is also on the way out?
For now, the former Ole Miss standout will be earning $4.3 million in the final deal of his rookie contract.
He is due for a massive contract extension after finishing with 967 yards and a career-best 12 touchdowns last season.
But having him agree is a different matter, especially if he wants to remain on a team that doesn’t want to admit its rebuild phase.
