Lamar Jackson Potential Price Tag Revealed

Lamar Jackson Potential Price Tag Revealed


After falling short against the Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild Card Round, the Baltimore Ravens are heading into a massive offseason. Not only do they need to find a new offensive coordinator to replace Greg Roman, but they also have to figure out Lamar Jackson's contract situation.

If the Ravens do decide to extend Jackson, they better be ready to pony up.

Lamar Jackson Contract Extension

Brad Spielberger of Pro Football Focus is projecting a massive contract extension for Jackson. Spielberger believes the former MVP will get a five-year, $260 million deal with $208 million guaranteed.

This is significantly more than Baltimore offered Jackson prior to last season, especially in terms of guaranteed money. The Ravens' final offer to Jackson before the season started was a $250 million extension with $133 million guaranteed. Many would have taken that deal, but Jackson bet on himself and turned in another strong season before going down with a knee injury late in the year.

Spielberger's projections suggest that Jackson could get an even bigger deal than the one Kyler Murray inked last summer. Murray and the Arizona Cardinals agreed to a five-year, $230.5 million extension with $160 million guaranteed, a deal that essentially set the market for Jackson.

Jackson has an MVP award and a playoff win on his resume, neither of which Murray has. He's going to get a huge payday one way or the other, so the only question is whether Baltimore will be the team that gives it to him.
