The Baltimore Ravens drafted Lamar Jackson at the end of the first round and Joe Flacco has responded by showing up to minicamp in the best shape of his career.

"He's obviously been challenged," safety Eric Weddle said. "Drafting Lamar [Jackson] and bringing [Robert] Griffin in, it’s lit a fire under him. You can tell. It has shown."

The Ravens could conceivably look to trade Flacco in the future depending on how they feel Jackson develops, similar to the Chiefs' situation with Alex Smith and Patrick Mahomes. 

The timetable could be determined by Flacco's play and Jackson's development.

"When you pick a quarterback or anybody in the first round, it means something," Flacco said last month on the drafting of Jackson.
