The Ravens also signed Odell Beckham Jr., along with other weapons for the receiving core
Last year, he missed out on the entirety of voluntary OTAs as the team still tried to broker a deal but were unable to agree terms before the start of the season.
After being given the franchise tag to start this offseason, Jackson had requested a trade before the two sides reached an agreement.
Baltimore added several new weapons for the 2019 MVP Award winner in the form of acquisitions of freelance receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Nelson Agholor and Boston College first draft pick Zay Flowers.
They also hired a new offensive coordinator in Todd Monken from Georgia, with the intention of running a more pro-style program for the first time during Jackson’s tenure with the Ravens.
While with the Ravens, Jackson pulled off an offense that sometimes looked like a triple-option attack under former OC Greg Roman. But they also had nothing close to an elite weapon on the perimeter to help relieve the pressure on three-time Pro Bowl tight end Mark Andrews.
