OK, this example’s just a little completely different. The Ravens, as they’ve repeatedly said this offseason, completely wish to pay Lamar. And Jackson, by all accounts, is kind of comfortable in Baltimore. However the quarterback, who serves as his personal agent, appears content material approaching his contract on a year-to-year foundation — and thus, maximizing his earnings à la Kirk Cousins. Or LeBron James. Requested final month what he is discovered from watching the NBA legend’s profession, Lamar supplied fairly a sound chunk.
“Every part. Being a champion. I really feel like that is the one factor I wanna take from him, if anything. Being a champion and being a billionaire,” Jackson stated on UNINTERRUPTED’s The Store. “That is simply what I have been excited about since I used to be just a little child. Being a billionaire and being a champion.”
That quote may increase some eyebrows, however in speaking to Lamar on my SiriusXM Radio present final 12 months, I by no means obtained that sense that he is in any respect distracted by contract speak — or actually something. At age 25, Jackson already has an MVP beneath his belt, and his ability set stays one of the electrical we have ever seen. He is really one in every of one. Yeah, the Ravens simply missed the playoffs for the primary time within the Lamar period, however they have been hit with a wild rash of accidents. A mulligan is so as. If I am Baltimore, I prolong a clean verify and see what sort of greenback determine would compel Jackson to signal. He is that good.
