Lamar Jackson won’t be starring on Netflix anytime soon.
The Ravens quarterback said after Saturday’s training camp practice that, despite interest from the streaming site in featuring Jackson on its popular new documentary series “Quarterback,” he won’t be participating.
The first season, which featured the Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, Minnesota Vikings’ Kirk Cousins and Atlanta Falcons’ Marcus Mariota, was released July 12 and featured behind-the-scenes looks at the quarterbacks’ on- and off-field lives last season.
“I appreciate them, but I’m just trying to focus on ball right now,” Jackson said. “I’m trying to focus on ball.”
Netflix announced this month that the series had been renewed for a second season, but it’s unclear who will be featured. Along with Jackson, the Dallas Cowboys’ Dak Prescott, Cincinnati Bengals’ Joe Burrow and Philadelphia Eagles’ Jalen Hurts, among others, have said they declined invitations to star in the series’ first or second season.
Flowers’ stadium debut delayed
Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers’ grand debut at M&T Bank Stadium, scheduled for Saturday, will have to wait.
The first-round missed his second straight practice with an illness. Flowers took the field in a face mask and sweats before the team’s fourth session started in the early afternoon.
Running back J.K. Dobbins, wide receiver Rashod Bateman, outside linebacker Tyus Bowser and cornerback Damarion “Pepe” Williams also remain sidelined. All started camp on the PUP list.
