Ravens star quarterback Lamar Jackson has been hitting the weight room heavy this off-season.
A bulked-up Lamar popped up on NFL Network over the weekend, and explained his mindset during off-season trading.
It was very important. I just wanted to put a little more weight on me, because I was a little bit, you know, early in my career. I just wanted to gain weight and see how it felt. And I feel good. … I was like 205-208, now I’m like 230.
The NFL world reacted to Lamar’s extra weight on social media.
A Ravens fan said, “Lamar is incredibly likable and he’s working to get better.” “stop hating.”
“I can already see the LaFullback jokes,” laughed another.
“Lamar at 230 is even scarier,” cried another user. “Yo Juice put on 20 pounds of durability.”
Even more intimidating is the figure of a strong Lamarr to defend in the AFC.
