Ravens quarterbacks Joe Flacco and Lamar Jackson could share the field at some point this season.
Baltimore has been installing offensive formations including both Flacco and Jackson, according to a report by ESPN. Flacco will take the snap in those scenarios while Jackson will line up at another position, the report says.
“I have a lot of fun seeing what they come up with and what they’re going to come up with next,” Jackson said to ESPN. “We’ll see where it goes. You have to use your good players.”
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he thinks Jackson’s versatility will help the team’s offense.
“If you put two quarterbacks on the field at once, what options does it create for our offense?” Harbaugh said. “That’s what we’re trying to figure out.”
Jackson, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2016, was selected No. 32 overall by the Ravens in the 2018 NFL Draft. He was a dual-threat quarterback at Louisville, registering 69 passing touchdowns and 50 rushing scores over his three-year collegiate career.
The Ravens finished 2017 with a 9-7 record and missed the playoffs for a third straight season.
