The Baltimore Ravens offense will look quite different next season, and it was about time already.
Lamar Jackson didn’t always see eye to eye with Greg Roman, and it seems like he just wasn’t the best fit to make the most of his skill set.
Of course, the Ravens had a historically prolific running game under Roman, but it felt like Jackson was somewhat misused.
So, now that new OC Todd Monken has officially taken over, one would expect Jackson to rush back to the field to try and get some work together.
However, the recently-signed quarterback hasn’t been in attendance at the team’s voluntary workouts.
When asked about that, Monken claimed that there was no rush or concern because they knew that Jackson was working hard, and he didn’t dig too much into details.

We cannot ignore the fact that Jackson couldn’t finish the season because of an injury, so he might not be back to full strength just yet.
The Ravens went to great lengths to surround him with the most offensive talent he’s ever had around him this season, drafting standout WR prospect Zay Flowers out of Boston College, and spending some big bucks to sign Odell Beckham Jr. as well.
It’s evident that they’re looking forward to favoring the passing game, which only makes sense after watching Jackson make big strides in that aspect of his game over the past couple of seasons.
Barring injury, the Ravens should have one of the best, most balanced offenses in the league in 2023.NEXT: Ravens GM Makes His Thoughts Clear About LB Patrick Queen
