OWINGS MILLS, Md. – Quarterback Baltimore Ravens, Lamar Jackson, announced on Wednesday an apology for the video he posted on his Instagram account.
I have made a bad decision and will set a better example in the future. #Excuse me
– Lamar Jackson (@ Lj_era8) March 13, 2019
The video Jackson seemed to film on his phone showed a light on his dashboard indicating that someone in the car was not wearing a seatbelt. The post was taken on Instagram on Wednesday afternoon.
Jackson, 22, was the youngest quarterback to start an NFL playoff game last season. The 32nd overall winner in last year's draft took over Jackson as Baltimore's mid-season start-up shockback for the injured Joe Flacco and won six of his seven regular season starts.
The Ravens called Jackson their starter for the 2019 campaign after switching Flacco to the Denver Broncos for a fourth round. This trade became official on Wednesday.
While the video was removed from Jackson's Instagram account, it was posted on the TMZ website. The ravens responded on Wednesday evening and said, "We know the report and have addressed it."
