Lamar Jackson conducts another throwing session with Ravens teammates
Lamar Jackson continues to get in some on-field work with his Baltimore Ravens teammates despite NFL teams being relegated to all-virtual offseasons. The most recent workout led by Jackson involved the reigning MVP hosting a few of his teammates at a group workout in Florida.
Footage has surfaced of Jackson tossing passes to Ravens receivers Miles Boykin and rookie James Proche. Interestingly enough, fans who stumbled upon the park workout were the source of the video from the throwing session.

WR Miles Boykin said last week that Jackson was planning some informal workouts.
Rookie sixth-round pick James Proche can be seen catching passes.
This week’s session follows Jackson meeting up with Ravens wideout Marquise “Hollywood” Brown in South Florida a few weeks ago.

“Turning up with my boy Lamar Jackson,” Brown wrote in the original video which he posted to his Instagram story.
Jackson is expected to continue leading these informal workouts throughout the offseason. Boykin unsurprisingly believes the sessions will pay huge dividends, as “there’s only so much you can do in [virtual] meetings without being able to go out on the field.”
“Right now, we just have the plan to go down there and be able to run through some plays on offense and just play football a little bit to get back to something that we love doing,” Boykin said last Tuesday, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN. “It’ll be exciting for us to be together, just work on that chemistry.”
A recent report from Adam Schefter of ESPN indicates players shouldn’t expect to make a full return to team facilities until training camp, whenever that does occur. The fact that Jackson and the Ravens receiving corps are getting at least some on-field work in is sure to pay dividends once camp actually kicks off.
