One year ago today, Baltimore Ravens star Mark Ingram gave one of the most hilariously legendary introductions to his teammate, Lamar Jackson.

Jackson, the Ravens quarterback, has taken the NFL by storm since arriving to the league in 2018. After collegiate football at the University of Louisville, the Ravens made him their first round draft.

His unique ability to both pass and run at a high level makes him one of the top players in the league. The QB won the league’s Most Valuable Player Award in 2019 and is having an MVP caliber performance again this season.

It was a year ago today (Tuesday) that Ingram provided an impromptu introduction for his quarterback. In the introduction, Ingram calls his teammate the “MVP front runner” and jokingly dares anyone to suggest otherwise. Check out the clip of the hilarious throwback moment below:

Ingram, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2009 while at the University of Alabama, has had his own success in the league. In his introduction of Jackson, he praises the young quarterback’s ability to run and throw.

“Introducing the MVP front runner,” he says. “If anyone has a problem with that they can come see me. I’m right here in Baltimore outside of the bank. I’m about that. Lamar Jackson in the flesh.”

Jackson and Ingram share a high five and handshake before the quarterback takes the podium and Ingram exits. The situation drew laughter from reporters and from Jackson.

Jackson Having Another Great Season

The Ravens are off to a good start in the 2020 season with a 6-3 record nine games into the year. They are set to take on the Tennessee Titans this weekend. Only 23-years old, Jackson is having yet another standout season with more than 1,700 yards passing, 14 touchdowns and a passer rating of 95.6.
