Savvy quarterbacks know keeping the big men up front content makes for an easier life. In his second season, Lamar Jackson is proving wise beyond his years not only with his play, but in emerging as a locker room leader.
The Baltimore Ravens quarterback gifted the members of the Ravens’ offensive line slick-looking Rolex watches on Christmas Eve. Tackle Ronnie Stanley posted a video of him showing off his newest accessory and shouted out Jackson in Baltimore’s locker room.
Jackson and his line have plenty to celebrate this holiday season. The MVP frontrunner broke Michael Vick’s single-season rushing record for a quarterback, and he will end the regular season with 1,206 rushing yards on 176 attempts and seven rushing touchdowns — in addition to the Ravens owning the top seed in the AFC.
