Lamar Jackson says returning home to South Florida 'would be great'

Lamar Jackson says returning home to South Florida 'would be great'

He added another 1,601 yards and 18 touchdowns rushing.

GIRTH, folks. Ya gotta have GIRTH to play the quarterback position in the NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE. He said as much so at a press conference late Friday afternoon, declaring that he will not work out with the wide receivers at the 2018 NFL Combine. "What's your footwork on this?' A lot of questions", Jackson said.

The Ravens are expected to select a quarterback at some point to play behind Joe Flacco, so it's possible they could end up with Jackson.

Jackson perhaps innocently, but nicely, dismissed that race was behind anyone's intentions to line him up out wide. However, Jackson rather quickly denied that report and any buzz about a position change. "He should stay there". But surrounding him with talent which includes WR Keenan Allen, TE Hunter Henry, the dynamic RB duo of Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler will only set Jackson up for success shortly and help win over fans in the city of Los Angeles.

"I'm not going to their team", he said.

"I started watching him", Elway said.

When it comes to Black quarterbacks, we've seen this whole thing before...

It seems that most of this debate stemmed from Hall of Famer Bill Polian, now an ESPN analyst, suggesting that the 6-foot-2, 216-pound Jackson might be best served at wideout in the NFL.

Jackson had a successful career at Louisville. Organizations that run heavy run-pass-option concepts similar to the ones Eagles and Chiefs have successfully run could be a fit. Jackson also could perform well in a West Coast offense. "I feel like I'm a field general when I'm out there", Jackson said. His accuracy is a question. He had 3543 passing yards and 30 touchdowns as well as 1571 rushing yards and 21 rushing touchdowns.

Jackson improved as a passer in each of his three years of starting - from 54.7 percent completions in 2015 to 56.2 in his Heisman season of 2016 to 59.1 percent last season.

The Buffalo Bills are in need of a quarterback, and it looks as though they like what they have seen from Jackson.

"Whoever would like me at quarterback, that's where I'm going".

"No Wildcat", he said laughing. This is not the Dolphins with Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams.

As far as Lamar Jackson is concerned, there should be no confusion about his position. I love putting a chip on my shoulder. I can lead my team, I feel like I'm a field general when I'm out there. You know I love DeVante Parker and those guys out there - Kenyan Drake, [Kenny] Stills.
