John Harbaugh: 'Bet the over' on Lamar Jackson rushing more than Cam Newton

NFL Week 16 Blitz Read: Titans pick up key win over Redskins; Ravens shut down Chargers

So much for Lamar Jackson running less for the Ravens in 2019.

Speaking Sunday on NFL Network’s “Inside Training Camp Live,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh was asked to estimate the second-year quarterback’s rushing output.

Former Ravens coach Brian Billick noted Cam Newton’s career-high 139 rushing attempts under center for the Panthers in 2017, which Harbaugh believes can be beaten.

“I’d bet the over on that one. I’d bet the over for sure,” Harbaugh said. “It’s going to be interesting. I don’t think we know the exact numbers or the math.”

Jackson rushed for 695 yards on 147 carries last season, which is the most attempts by a quarterback since the AFL-NFL merger. He completed 58.2 percent of his passes for 1,201 yards and six touchdowns with three interceptions in addition to his five scores on the ground.

But Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said in May the team will look to build around Jackson and decrease his rushing attempts to keep him safe and healthy.

“I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised that Lamar is not going to be running 20 times a game,” Bisciotti said at the time, via ESPN. “That’s not what this offense is about.”

Now that veteran Joe Flacco is with the Broncos, Baltimore’s offense will be tailored to Jackson, though it appears he’ll run things — literally — when he’s comfortable.
