Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has graciously responded to Lamar Jackson's selection in the first round of the NFL Draft 2018 during the offseason.
The second day of practice on Friday was no different from Flacco. Again he answered a question about the rookie quarterback and asked a reporter to ask Flacco if there would be a point during the season when the requests would be "annoying "would.
And just as he has done since May, Flacco took the question with probably the best answer.
"No, I do not do that because I think we will win and we will not hear about it," Flacco told reporters.
Flacco, who entered his eleventh season, had a strong off-season in a 201
After a back injury in last season's training camp and a concussion during the regular season, he is healthy. The Ravens also used free agency to upgrade the receiving corpses with the broad receiver Michael Crabtree, John Brown and Willie Snead signatures, and then used the draft to pick close ends Hayden Hurst and Mark Andrews.
These moves are intended to help Flacco turn a Ravens offensive that ended the 2017 season at # 27 in the league on its way to a 9-7 record and a missed chance in the postseason for a third season. [Ericsson Weddle] Having seen a motivated Flacco during the organized team activities and compulsory minicamp, Eric Weddle believes that the best still has to come for Flacco.
"I just think Joe will have a career year this year," Weddle told reporters Friday. "And he'll lead our team into the playoffs, and with the additions we have and our defense, we all have to get a little better."
An improvement in Baltimore and another run in the 2018 post-season could be at the expense of Jackson, as Flacco remains the clear starter.
While Flacco hopes to calm down the Jackson issues over the course of the season, the 33-year-old quarterback also made it clear that he does not intend to go anywhere soon.
"I do not expect this to be my last year," Flacco said. "I know, I want to play for a long time."
