Ravens president Sashi Brown spoke on QB Lamar Jackson and the upcoming season, as did HC John Harbaugh.

“[Jackson has] been great in terms of coming back and really buying in,” Ravens president Sashi Brown said, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN. “I thought Eric [DeCosta, Ravens GM] and John and Oz [Newsome] and Steve [Bisciotti, Ravens owner] did a great job just sticking through it last year and really putting some pieces around him so that he could feel successful and see the commitment to him as well.”

Harbaugh noted that the offensive line is going to be a focus for the Ravens this offseason, as they need to replace three starters including guards Kevin Zeitler and John Simpson, as well as RT Morgan Moses

“We’ve got to find who the next guys are going to be,” Harbaugh noted on the offensive line. “We have the guys in-house. We have free agents that we signed. And then we’ve got the draft. I’m confident that we’ll have a very good offensive line.”
