OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson acknowledged this offseason that he requested that the team sign wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

This week, Jackson has gotten a chance to work with a wide receiver that he's long admired for the first time.

"Odell is a legend to a lot of us [with] what he did early in his career and the past year [2021 season] when he was with the Rams," Jackson said Wednesday. "Odell is him, one of those guys."

Beckham, 30, is participating in his first practices with the Ravens since signing his one-year, $15 million contract with Baltimore in April.
