Lamar Jackson is heading into the fourth season of his career, which means he and the rest of the 2018 quarterback class are now eligible for contract extensions, and big ones at that. While there's no telling what number Lamar's contract will ultimately end up at, we know it won't be Mahomes level, but it also won't be cheap.
Baltimore Ravens fans worried about Jackson's future with the Ravens, need not worry anymore. Jackson said he recently spoke with GM Eric DeCosta and he claims he wants to be in Baltimore forever.
Now there will surely still be a negotiation process. Massive deals like this don't just come together in one offer.
But it's encouraging that both sides are in contact and both have an interest in keeping Jackson in Baltimore for a long time. Now all they have to do is concentrate on winning a Super Bowl together, just as Jackson promised on draft day.
