NFL Ravens star Jackson apologizes for high-speed video


Washington, United States | AFP | 

Baltimore Ravens star Lamar Jackson, the youngest quarterback to ever start an NFL playoff game, apologized Wednesday for a video showing him driving a vehicle unsafely and at high speed.

The video, apparently filmed on a handheld cellphone while behind the wheel, showed Jackson driving at 105 miles per hour (169 kilometers per hour) with a signal showing someone in the vehicle, possibly Jackson himself, was not wearing a seatbelt.

The video was posted and removed from Jackson’s Instagram account but later appeared on celebrity website TMZ.

“I made a bad decision and will set a better example going forward. #Myapologies,” Jackson posted on his Twitter account Wednesday afternoon.

Jackson, 22, was the last pick in the first round in last year’s NFL Draft. He replaced injured Joe Flacco and went 6-1 as a regular-season starter and was named Baltimore’s starting quarterback for the 2019 campaign, a trade of Flacco to Denver being completed on Wednesday.

The Ravens said Wednesday in a statement: “We are aware of the report and have addressed it.”
