Lamar Jackson has yet to sign a contract extension with the Baltimore Ravens and it looks as if he will start the new season without one.
On Twitter, a user declared that the Ravens should be offering Jackson $250 million guaranteed in a contract. Another person stated the team had already offered him that much money and that Jackson wanted more.
Jackson chimed in. Taking to the replies, Jackson had just three words for the user who said he wanted more: “No they didn’t.”
The only thing we do know is that Jackson is reportedly seeking more than the $230 million guaranteed Deshaun Watson got from the Cleveland Browns.
Another report suggests that the Ravens have offered Jackson more than the $230.5 million Kyler Murray received, though only $160 million of Murray’s deal was guaranteed.
Jackson did tell reporters in late July that he and the team were having discussions, however.
“We’re still talking right now,” he said. “Whenever we have mutual free time.”
He also told reporters he set a deadline for contract negotiations—the start of the regular season.
“Yeah, we coming up to it,” he said. It’s coming up. Season’s coming up. We’re going to be good for the season.”
It remains to be seen if Jackson will get anything close to $250 million fully guaranteed, which would set a new NFL record.
