Lamar Jackson wants to throw for 6,000 yards with new WRs

lamar jackson had his first press conference with the Ravens after signing a contract extension with the Baltimore franchise for the next five years in exchange for 260 million dollars.

In addition to the salary increase, the QB is happy about the new players management has acquired and he believes he can achieve a milestone never before achieved by the greats like Tom Brady or Peyton Manning.

I want to throw for six thousand yards with the players we have.Jackson said. “I’m not a guy who chases individual awards or who is focused on statistics. I just want to do that because no one has done it and I think we have the tools to do it.”

The Ravens signed Odell Beckham Jr.. in free agency with an incentive-packed contract that calls for 60 receptions, 1,000-plus yards or nine or more touchdown receptions. In addition, they included the rookie Zay Flowers, graduated from Boston College, with his first selection from the last Draft. The Fort Lauderdale native will give Jackson a reliable target in the slot.

Before the new contract was finalized, Jackson was wanted by other teams including the Washington Commanders and the Indianapolis Colts. However, the quarterback out of Louisville stated that those teams were not relevant to him.

“To be honest, I didn’t care about the other teams. I really wanted to get a deal here. I wanted to be here,” Jackson said. “I really want to finish my career here and win a Super Bowl.”

Most passing yards in a season

Jackson has been singled out as a quarterback who stands out outside of the pocket and the most yards generated in a season is 3,127, earned in 2019 when he was named NFL MVP. The record for most passing yards belongs to Peyton Manning, who had 5,477 in 2013 as the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos.

One of the factors to consider and that gives Lamar Jackson the benefit of the doubt is that the Ravens quarterback has never played more than fifteen games a season. and the most passes attempted was 401 pitches. If he remains healthy in 2023, he will be able to play up to 17 games of normal season.
