Recently, he has been gathering many eyes as a video of him nearly being taken with the winds went viral on Twitter. Lamar Jackson, the star NFL quarterback, even reacted to this ordeal. Furthermore, it was clear from his reaction that he found the action quite doltish.

Hurricane Ian made landfall on Wednesday. Originating from the Windward Islands, it is currently devastating Florida, colliding onto the coasts, with winds at a speed of 150 mph. Multiple reports have come out, citing the destructive capacity of the storm, encouraging people to seek shelter.

Fans correlate the reporter with Lamar Jackson

However, it hasn’t stopped the fans to share their humor as well. One fan related Jim Cantore to Lamar Jackson, saying “He didn’t reach an agreement with the network this year and is betting on himself.”  

The quarterback won MVP with the Baltimore Ravens in 2019. Subsequently, he is in the final year of his contract. He is currently playing on his rookie deal, which is set to expire. According to some reports, the 5th year quarterback and the team have not been able to come to any agreement. In addition to this, the quarterback is indeed trusting himself after rejecting the Purple Murder’s advances.

Starting out hot

On the other hand, the quarterback has started the season firing on all cylinders. In 3 games, he has 749 passing yards with 10 touchdowns to his name. Further adding 243 rushing yards, something that he’s exceptionally well at. After making such an explosive return from his injury, he has done nothing but multiply his value for the upcoming season.

The Ravens can use the franchise tag on Jackson, but if they hope to actually keep their main man, they’ll have to manage and free up the required cap space. For a quarterback like Lamar Jackson, teams would come in stronger than a category 4 storm.
