J.K. Dobbins pens 'thank you' to Baltimore, vows to keep improving
J.K. Dobbins had about as good of a rookie season as anyone could’ve asked. The former Ohio State running back quickly carved out a role on an incredibly talented Baltimore Ravens roster in his first year in the league.
It’s just the beginning for Dobbins, though. After one year with the Ravens, the running back is already looking forward to getting better.
On Monday, with Baltimore’s season now over after a 17-3 loss to the Buffalo Bills in the NFL Playoffs, Dobbins issued a “thank you” note to Ravens fans. And in that note, he’s vowing to get even better.
“Baltimore…Thank you for welcoming me with open arms in my first season here,” Dobbins wrote on Twitter. “I promise I will keep getting better and we have special things coming for many years! All love. See y’all next year!”
