Free agent Robert Griffin III came out in his support and shared a tweet in which he wrote, “Stop saying @Lj_era8 has to change his style of play,” Griffin tweeted. “He plays Lamar ball and is the only player in the NFL who can do what he does and that’s what makes him special. Lamar does a phenomenal job of avoiding big hits when he runs and when protected, he is lethal from the pocket.”

There have been discussions going on about whether Jackson should experiment with his playing style. Griffin and Jackson have played together for the Baltimore Ravens. Griffin knows Jackson’s playing style and thinks he can easily dominate on the football field.
