Lamar Jackson shares how it feels to have Odell Beckham Jr. as his receiver

Lamar Jackson feels he and Odell Beckham Jr. are developing well their chemistry and also added the star wide receiver is "a lot faster" than people think. This week, the Baltimore Ravens are having joint practices with the Washington Commanders.

For the first time since Beckham signed with the Ravens, he and Jackson are having a chance to compete against a non-Ravens defense. On Tuesday, Beckham got behind the Washington defense for a gain of around 40 yards. "I feel like our chemistry, it's there.

And he's a lot faster than people give him credit for. A lot faster," Jackson said, via the Ravens' website.

Ravens star quarterback Marlon Humphrey says Beckham "has done some bad stuff" to him in practice.

Also, Humphrey said he expects "big things" from Beckham and Jackson. "Whatever this means, he said, 'I'm not going to do to you what I'd do to guys in the game.' He's done some kind of bad stuff to me, actually, so that's a good thing – that there's more in the tank.

I think that connection's going to be sweet. I'm really excited for those two guys to make some big things happen," Humphrey said of Jackson and Beckham. After missing the entire 2022 season due to torn ACL recovery, Beckham is ready to play again in 2023.

At the start of training camp, Beckham admitted he was really excited to officially return to football. "I'm excited. I'm excited. It's been a long time having to sit out and watch other people and not get to play. I've been waiting for this moment for a long time.

I think I've always been like this, always looking to be motivated, looking to be great. So I think at the end of the day, my story will be about resiliency and just being able to bounce back time after time," Beckham said last month.
