Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Lamar Jackson admits he got lazy with throwing mechanics

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Lamar Jackson admits he got lazy with throwing mechanics

The Baltimore Ravens' full 2019 regular season schedule will be released Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST. Before all that happens, here's the latest Ravens news you need to know.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. The magnifying glass will be put on quarterback Lamar Jackson during his second season in the league. During the offseason, Jackson put that magnifying glass on himself and noticed mechanical issues in his passing game. 

“I was probably getting lazy, trying to make things happen with just my arm and not following through with my legs, and it showed a lot," Jackson said on completing just 58.2 percent of his passes in 2018. I would throw an inaccurate ball.”

The 2018 first-round pick has spent the offseason working with his former high school coach in Florida, as well as throwing with Ravens receivers. His teammates have already noticed a change in Jackson both mentally and physically. 

“Keeping a wide base, throwing out-breaking routes,” Jackson said via the Ravens website. “Just trying to be spot-on with my accuracy, trying to work on every attribute I can.”

2. 2019 free agency brought the departures of veteran leaders like Terrell Suggs, C.J. Mosley, Eric Weddle and Joe Flacco. Now as the team ushers in a new era of Ravens football, there's confidence among the team they will find their new leaders. 

“You walk in Day 1, 2019 and they aren’t there, it’s obviously something you can’t not notice," safety Tony Jefferson said Tuesday. “But, that’s how the business works. It’s Year 7. I’ve seen it all. It may not be how we wanted it to roll, but we got to roll either way. We are who we are. We’re the Ravens. We’re always going to be resilient, we’re going to be tough, physical."

Among those players who will step into new roles as leaders on the team is free agency addition Earl Thomas and Patrick Onwuasor.

“That’s the first thing Earl said, ‘We’re going to work on your leadership,’” Onwuasor said Tuesday. “That’s something that I kind of shy away from. It’ll probably be great for us.”

3. With the 2019 NFL Draft just about a week away, Michigan linebacker Devin Bush will be visiting the Ravens Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Bush could help fill the holes left by Suggs and Mosley's departure. 


Looking Ahead:

April 19: Deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets

April 25-27: 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville, Tn.

May 3-6 or May 10-13: Potential three-day rookie mini camp
