Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson issued an online apology March 13 after posting a video to his Instagram account that appeared to show Jackson driving 105 mph.
The video, which has since been deleted, was
posted by TMZ
. It appeared to be taken by Jackson on his cell phone, and the dashboard light indicates that someone in the car was not wearing a seat belt. It's unclear whether Jackson had a passenger in the Mercedes-Benz at the time.
Within hours of the TMZ post, Jackson issued an apology on Twitter:
Jackson, 22, a former Heisman Trophy winner and first-round draft pick last year, took over the Ravens' starting quarterback position last year in midseason when Joe Flacco was hurt and led the Ravens to a 6-1 record and the AFC North title.
Jackson retained the starting job even after Flacco was medically cleared to return, which in turn led the Ravens to trade the former Super Bowl MVP and franchise quarterback. The deal that sent Flacco to the Denver Broncos for a fourth-round pick became official March 13.
