Lamar Jackson seems very pleased with the Baltimore Ravens locking Odell Beckham Jr. down to a contract, yet it’s being reported that he wanted the team to secure a deal with another wide receiver to sweeten the pot.
Beckham will don Ravens purple when he goes to work next season, having landed a $15 million deal with the team. He can make up to $18 million in add-ons.
The WR has since been spotted partying in Miami with the quarterback, who also shared a screenshot of their FaceTime session to his Instagram. According to Michael Lombardi (H/T Dov Kleiman), Lamar asked the team to get DeAndre Hopkins too.
Lombardi has made claims of the quarterback telling the Ravens to get both wideouts on the roster to get the ball rolling on solid negotiations.
