Lamar Jackson appears fed up with the Baltimore Ravens.
A representative for Jackson has reached out to “more than one” NFL team recently in an effort to jumpstart negotiations, Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio writes.
Florio also noted the rep is reportedly not certified by the NFL Players Association. He also added that Jackson is now ready to move on from the Ravens.

“As one source explained it, the person has said that Jackson does not want a fully-guaranteed contract,” Florio said. “Some regard this as a possible exercise in semantics, with Jackson still wanting a very significant amount fully guaranteed — up to $200 million or more — with one more non-guaranteed years on the back end.
“Another source said that the representative is telling other teams that Lamar is ready to move on from the Ravens.”
The Ravens placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Jackson earlier this month, which allowed him to negotiate contracts with other teams. However, no team has placed an offer for him. It may have something to do with rumors that he wants a fully guaranteed deal and the team that places an offer would lose draft picks to the Ravens.
Jackson, typically a reserved and private person, hasn’t commented much on social media regarding any of the football content.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported over the weekend that the Colts could be a wildcard team to watch for Jackson or possibly someone like the Jets, depending on what happens with Aaron Rodgers, or the Titans and Vikings.
Jackson is free to meet with interested teams right now and there hasn’t been any reported progress between him and the Ravens on an extension.
It looks like whatever goodwill he and the team had is now over.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
