DK Metcalf making plays
DK Metcalf turned heads during his time at Ole Miss and more recently at the NFL’s scouting combine last March. It hasn’t taken long for him to jell with the perennial Pro Bowler he’ll be catching passes from this fall.
'Take the over' on Lamar Jackson's rushing attempts
Lamar Jackson enters his first full season as a bona fide No. 1 starter under the microscope after Baltimore traded Super Bowl champion QB Joe Flacco to Denver during the offseason.
Early returns appear to be positive though, with his passing reportedly improving and coach John Harbaugh saying the 2016 Heisman trophy winner will be free to run.
As we were talking to #Ravens coach John Harbaugh about QB Lamar Jackson’s capacity to run, @CoachBillick told him Cam Newton’s high was 139 rushes in a season. Harbaugh, w/out hesitating, said: Take the over.— Aditi Kinkhabwala (@AKinkhabwala) July 29, 2019
The #Ravens have made no secret of how much and in what variety of ways they hope to run the ball. I jokingly asked RB Mark Ingram if the WRs were complaining abt touches. QB Lamar Jackson, whose throwing has definitely improved, interrupted: “Oh, they’ll get the ball enough.”— Aditi Kinkhabwala (@AKinkhabwala) July 29, 2019
