The Baltimore Ravens have been hard at work during 2022 training camp. They kicked off practices last week, and have been getting in quality reps as they look to bounce back from a disappointing end to their 2021 campaign.

After one of the first training camp practices of the year, quarterback Lamar Jackson spoke to the media about many different topics. One of the things he discussed was his leadership style, and talked about how he’s going to try something he said he wasn’t really doing in the past.

“A little bit," he said on if he's making any changes. "You guys are going to see me trying to engage more. Like, I [try] to. After I mess up or a guy messes up [or] we’re not on the same page, I try to engage more with them. I wasn’t really doing that in previous years.”

Jackson has grown each year as a leader of his team, both on and off of the field. He’s earned the trust and respect of his teammates and coaches, and entering his fifth NFL season he’s determined to keep growing in that aspect, which in and of itself is a quality of a leader.
