Baltimore Ravens: Robert Griffin III Gets a Chance to Start and Makes the Most of It
The Ravens may want Lamar Jackson to do less running and more throwing, but that’s not really his game. Jackson needs to use his legs to be at his best. Naturally, that opens him up to lost fumbles and the risk of injury.
Jackson only started seven games last season and doesn’t appear to have the frame to start 16 if he’s always running and taking hits. Sooner or later, he’ll go down, opening the door for Robert Griffin III, who was once a lot like Jackson. Griffin has worked hard to earn a spot on an NFL roster as a backup, and he’s someone who will make the most of his chance.
