The Lamar Jackson saga appears to be far from over as the quarterback seeks to secure a lucrative contract in the wake of getting franchise-tagged by the Baltimore Ravens.
Earlier this week, it was reported that an individual who is not NFLPA certified was contacting teams on behalf of Jackson in an attempt to trigger a trade.
The NFL has since sent a memo to all 32 teams telling them a man named Ken Francis might reach out to them looking to negotiate a deal for the QB while warning them not to engage in discussions as he is not a certified agent.
Jackson took to Twitter to deny this and has since gone on to make an announcement, revealing that he and Francis are business partners who are starting a home fitness company.
