After speculation and rumors, it has been confirmed that the Baltimore Ravens and quarterback Lamar Jackson have come to terms on a new five-year contract extension. This agreement between the two parties follows months of uncertainty and tense negotiations. The deal will reportedly exceed that of the $255 Jalen Hurts received in Philadelphia.
Despite some hiccups in the negotiation process, the Ravens were ultimately able to secure a deal with their star quarterback. Jackson’s performance on the field has been nothing short of impressive, and this extension solidifies the Ravens’ commitment to him as their franchise player.
According to reports, the negotiations between the two sides saw some tensions arise, with rumors circulating regarding ultimatums from Jackson. Additionally, his decision to turn down a lucrative contract offer from the Ravens only added to the uncertainty surrounding his future with the team. However, both sides were ultimately able to come to an agreement and avoid any potential holdouts or trade demands.
This deal is a significant milestone for both Jackson and the Ravens organization. Jackson has become a force to be reckoned with in the NFL, earning MVP honors in 2019 and leading his team to the playoffs in each of his first three seasons.
For the Ravens, this deal represents a commitment to their quarterback and a belief in his value as a franchise QB. With this new contract in place, fans can rest assured that Lamar Jackson will remain a Raven for the foreseeable future.
