Lamar Jackson has revealed the figure offered to him by the Baltimore Ravens that’s led to him getting franchise tagged by the organization.
The parties have been at a standoff for nearly a year and it’s been said that the fact that Jackson doesn’t have an agent is what’s holding an agreement back.
Jackson took to Twitter this Tuesday to disclose the deal which was offered to him by the Ravens in response to ESPN’s Adam Schefter claiming certain factors could have taken the salary offered to around $200 million in guarantees.
The quarterback has refuted the insider’s claim, revealing what he says is the offer the Ravens put in front of him. According to Jackson, he was propositioned with a three-year contract worth $133 million which would be fully guaranteed.
