As a result, his physical development was quite necessary for his longevity. Lamar Jackson gets hit by opposing defenders a lot, and that isn’t good for any quarterback. As he has gained more muscle mass, he might be able to absorb those hits better than he could earlier.

Lamar Jackson started lifting weights in the offseason. He gained around 15 pounds of muscle mass. Earlier in the season, the Baltimore Ravens quarterback was around 205-208 lbs, but now he is touching the 220 lb mark.
