Jackson had an unbelievable season for the Ravens in 2019, throwing for 3,127 yards and rushing for an additional 1,206 more. He accounted for 43 total touchdowns during the regular season, and led Baltimore to a 14-2 record.
After starting in seven games for the Ravens last season, Jackson locked down the permanent starting job for the franchise in 2019 and quickly became one of the most dynamic players in the NFL. In just two short seasons at the NFL level, he’s developed into one of the premier quarterbacks and talents in the league.
Jackson, who played college football at Louisville and won a Heisman Trophy, is just 23. He was the 32nd pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
