Packers' Aaron Rodgers advises Ravens' Lamar Jackson: 'Slide a little bit'

Aaron Rodgers didn’t play on Thursday night when his Green Bay Packers played their second preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens because of back tightness.

The Ravens’ second-year quarterback, Lamar Jackson, started and played — and Rodgers liked what he saw.

‘Slide a little bit’

After the game, a 26-13 Baltimore win, Jackson and Rodgers met at midfield, and Rodgers was complimentary of Jackson — and offered advice.

“What’s up, young fella?” Rodgers said, offering a hand and embracing Jackson.

“What’s up, GOAT?” Jackson said.

“I love watching you play, man,” Rodgers said. “That was pretty spectacular.”

“I love watching you play,” Jackson replied. “Appreciate that.”

“Have a great season. ... Slide a little bit,” Rodgers advises, knowing that taking hits can be a sure way to shorten a quarterback’s season or career.

(It’s nice to see Rodgers and Jackson’s interaction, but watching Robert Griffin III’s expression is funny.)

Jackson was 6-for-10 passing for 58 yards and officially had two rushes for 14 yards, but his best play, an 18-yard touchdown run, was taken off the board because a penalty on receiver Willie Snead.
