The flurry of trades involving quarterbacks this offseason, and the big money handed out them, has added another factor that could impact contract extension talks this summer. Many around the league are paying close attention to Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens, who appear to be moving slowly with negotiations.

The lack of an extension has prompted speculation about Jackson's long-term future in Baltimore, but he recently cleared the air on Twitter.

Jackson called out anyone who's pushing a "false narrative" and restated his "love" for the Ravens. He pleaded for outsiders to "stop tryna read my mind" when it comes to extension talks.

It's clear the 2019 MVP is annoyed with the questioning of his future in Baltimore. Recent comments from Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti may have stirred the pot, though, as he said he doesn't expect a Jackson extension to be signed before the 2022 season starts unless there's a "change of heart" from the QB.

Biscotti added both teammates and the front office love the dual-threat star, so the organization is happy to pay Jackson whenever he's ready to hammer out a deal.

These extension talks remain something to monitor throughout the coming months as Baltimore looks to lock down its long-term future with Jackson under center.
