Could the smiley face mean that he’s close to a deal in Baltimore? Could it mean that he’s close to a deal elsewhere?
The Ravens used the non-exclusive franchise tag on Jackson, which would pay the quarterback $34 million this season if he signed his tender. He has not signed it as he seeks an extension, and no team has been willing to tender an offer sheet to Jackson due to the steep price of two first-round picks that would have to go back to Baltimore if Jackson ended up elsewhere.
Not to mention, there is no indication whether he has come down on hsi terms of wanting a fully guaranteed deal that is bigger than what Deshaun Watson got from the Cleveland Browns when they traded for him last offseason.
Jackson has played for the Ravens ever since he was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He was the 32nd overall pick and was selected as a quarterback. Since then, he has become a star player for the Ravens, earning multiple accolades, including the NFL MVP award in 2019.
He simply wants to get paid what he is worth.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
