  • Lamar Jackson Won't Negotiate Extension During Regular Season

    For the second day in a row, there has been an important development with respect to Lamar Jackson‘s extension efforts. ESPN’s Jamison Hensley reports that the Ravens quarterback won’t negotiate a new contract once the regular season begins.  [RELATED: Jackson Seeking Fully Guaranteed Deal?] When asked about a firm deadline approaching in the form of Week […]

  • Lamar Jackson Puts Deadline On Extension Talks

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has set a Week 1 deadline for a contract extension as negotiations continue between him and the team. Specifically, when asked if he would put a pause on negotiations when the season starts, the star quarterback said, "Yeah, for sure." Jackson likely won't see too much preseason action, but there's no denying that he has overall QB1 upside if things go right and he can stay healthy. The quarterback battled an ankle injury last season but is ready to go for 2022.

  • Lamar Jackson Unsure Of Preseason Status

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has previously stated that he would like to suit up for preseason games, but during media availability Saturday, he confirmed that he's not sure if the team will have him under center before Week 1 of the regular season. Jackson saw his 2021 year come to an end due to an ankle injury, but the former MVP is preparing for another potentially electric season, despite some new faces around him on offense. Beyond Jackson on the depth chart is Tyler Huntley, who went 16-for-18 through the air in the team's preseason-opening victory. Keeping Jackson on the sidelines is largely a precaution to prevent against injury, but the signal caller has also been engaged in contract negotiations with the franchise, which have not yet resulted in a long-term agreement.

  • Lamar Jackson Won't Play In Preseason Opener

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson won't play during the preseason opener on Thursday against the Titans. This isn't a surprise, primarily since the 2019 NFL MVP may not get any reps until closer to Week 1. Even then, Jackson isn't a lock to see the field throughout the preseason. The 25-year-old has bulked since the end of last season. He has also demonstrated added "zip" to his throws in camp, so he has top-five fantasy upside at the position heading into the 2022-23 campaign. Regarding the exhibition versus Tennessee, Tyler Huntley, Brett Hundley, and Anthony Brown are listed behind Jackson on the depth chart, so there's a chance all of them will receive some snaps.

  • Lamar Jackson's Throws Have More Zip On Them

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson bulked up in the offseason, and it has shown on his throws so far in training camp. He has thrown the ball with more velocity and had tighter spirals. Jackson was 12-for-17 (70.5%) on his passes in team drills on Thursday, including a 55-yard touchdown pass to rookie Isaiah Likely. "He's strong and he looks great," head coach John Harbaugh said. Jackson also worked on cleaning up his throwing mechanics in the offseason, so that likely has played a big part as well. The 25-year-old disappointed in 2021 due to a late-season injury, but he's determined to bounce back for fantasy managers as a top-five signal-caller.

  • Lamar Jackson Having Mutual Conversation With Ravens

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is practicing at training camp despite not having reached a long-term contract extension with the team. Jackson told reporters on Thursday that "we're having a mutual conversation" and "we're keeping it in house." The 25-year-old signal-caller doesn't have an agent, but head coach John Harbaugh said, "both sides are motivated to get the job done." Earlier in the year, the Ravens took the stance that they were waiting for Jackson to seriously approach them about a new deal. "I just want to win at the end of the day. I just want to be great." Jackson is motivated to be great again after a disappointing 2021 season that ended with him on the sidelined due to injury. With better health, he should bounce back as a top-five fantasy QB.

  • Lamar Jackson Practicing Despite Contract Situation

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson practiced with the team on Wednesday at training camp, and teammates said there was no indication that his contract was on his mind. Jackson is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and his base salary of $23 million is guaranteed in 2022, but he has no guarantees beyond this year. An injury at practice could reduce his future earning potential. If Jackson plays out this year on his rookie deal, he'd be a free agent next March, but the Ravens would presumably use the franchise tag on him. His presence on the field this week indicates he's willing to play this year without a new deal. Contract issues aside, the 25-year-old should be considered a top-five fantasy QB despite disappointing in 2021 due to an injury late in the year.

  • Kyler Murray Deal Shouldn't Impact Lamar Jackson

    CBS Sports' Jonathan Jones gets the sense that the deal that quarterback Kyler Murray signed with the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday for five years and $230.5 million doesn't necessarily impact Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson's contract-extension talks. Jackson is a former unanimous NFL MVP with two playoff appearances and one playoff win, so he should be aiming to match and top Deshaun Watson's $230 million fully guaranteed deal with the Cleveland Browns. Despite a down year in 2021 by his standards due to an injury late last season, Jackson should still be considered a top-five fantasy QB now that he's fully healthy entering the 2022 campaign.

  • Lamar Jackson Reports To Training Camp Early

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson reported to training camp early on Thursday, with the team's first full-squad practice set for next Wednesday. The Ravens and Jackson continue to be in ongoing contract negotiations, and he's next in line for a lucrative long-term deal after the Arizona Cardinals signed Kyler Murray to a five-year extension on Thursday. Whether he has an extension or not, Jackson should be a top-five fantasy QB in 2022 despite finishing the 2021 campaign as the QB15 while playing in only 12 games due to injury. The 25-year-old bulked up this offseason and spent time working on his throwing mechanics. It's safe to say that he's motivated to have another big season in 2022 after ending last year on a sour note.

  • Lamar Jackson Not Thinking About Holding Out

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson appears more open than ever to finally come to terms on a new contract. Both sides have pointed fingers throughout the offseason as to why a deal hasn't been completed. Yet, with training camp approaching, Jackson indicated he's not thinking about holding out, regardless if an agreement has been reached by then. The 2019 MVP is entering the option year of his rookie deal and is slated to receive $23 million. Unquestionably, the 25-year-old is the face of the franchise, so the Ravens would love to have him on the roster for many seasons to come. However, whether or not Jackson puts pen to paper has yet to be seen. But unless something changes, fantasy managers can draft Jackson without worrying about him missing time over the dispute.

  • Lamar Jackson Bulks Up

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson confirmed that he added 12 to 15 pounds of muscle mass this offseason. He said he usually played at between 205 and 208 pounds, but he's now at 220 pounds. "I just wanted to do it. See how I look, see how I feel," Jackson said. "And I feel good." The 25-year-old has been training hard in the offseason, and the ball was leaving his hand in a different way with more zip on his passes when he reported to mandatory minicamp. Jackson also worked with 3DQB throwing mechanics coach/trainer Adam Dedeaux this offseason. He finished last year on a disappointing note when he missed the final four games of the year due to an ankle injury, but Jackson is motivated to rebound and he has the talent to finish as a high-end QB1.

  • Holdout Still Possible For Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson isn't ruling out a holdout. Both sides remain at a standstill regarding a new deal. Yet, when asked about the possibility of a holdout, the former MVP seemingly indicated there's a chance he may not be at training camp in July. Nevertheless, things could continue to get even messier moving ahead. However, if Jackson isn't on the field for part (or all) of the season, it isn't good news for J.K. Dobbins, Mark Andrews, or Rashod Bateman, who is expected to be the team's No. 1 wideout in 2022.

  • Lamar Jackson Wants To Play Entire Career With Ravens

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, who said he's had contract talks with general manager Eric DeCosta this week, also said he'd like to finish his entire career with the Ravens. Jackson skipped voluntary organized team activities before joining the team for mandatory minicamp this week, but he said his absence at OTAs wasn't "contract-related." The 25-year-old wanted to "stay away" from offseason workouts after an injury filled 2021 season and "just grind." Despite disappointing due to an injury last season, Jackson remains a top-five QB1 target in fantasy drafts, and he could wind up as the overall QB1 when all is said and done if he stays healthy this year.

  • Lamar Jackson Is In Attendance At Minicamp

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has joined the team in minicamp. Last week, head coach John Harbaugh mentioned that he expected Jackson at minicamp despite him missing OTA workouts. The 25-year-old still remains without an extension, but the team insists that a deal will get done. It's possible that the Ravens use multiple franchise tags on Jackson until the two sides can reach a deal in the future. Although, Jackson would almost certainly be upset with the organization, assuming they can't reach an extension. The expectation is that this contract situation will continue to linger into the regular season. For the moment, it sounds like Jackson is going to continue suiting up for Baltimore, but things could quickly change.

  • Lamar Jackson Anticipated To Be At Minicamp

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is expected to be in attendance for mandatory minicamp. Both Jackson and the organization remain caught up in long-term contract talks. Yet, with the former MVP anticipated to report for an organized team function, it appears the stalemate won't prevent him from suiting up this season, even if a new deal isn't reached. Jackson regressed statistically in 2021 by throwing 2,882 yards, 16 touchdowns, and a career-high 13 interceptions. He also missed five games due to injury. Still, he's considered one of the best fantasy options at the position, especially since he is so lethal on the run.

  • Lamar Jackson Expected To Attend Mandatory Minicamp

    Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he expects quarterback Lamar Jackson to be in attendance for mandatory minicamp next week. "I know he's working hard. Lamar Jackson is a hard worker, so I'm not worried about how hard he's working. I fully expect him to come back in great shape," Harbaugh said. Jackson didn't show up to voluntary organized team activities while working on his own on his mechanics. The 25-year-old is entering the final year of his rookie deal and while the two sides are expected to get something done eventually, there hasn't been much urgency in that regard this offseason. The two-time Pro Bowler missed five games due to injury last year and finished with 2,882 passing yards, 16 touchdowns and a career-high 13 interceptions while rushing for 767 yards and two touchdowns on 133 carries. With better health, he should rebound as a high-end QB1 for fantasy managers in 2022.

  • Lamar Jackson Working Out On His Own

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has chosen to stay away from the team's offseason workout program, and the Ravens have expressed enthusiasm about the work he's done this offseason in training with quarterback mechanic expert Adam Dedeaux. Baltimore has yet to publicly express concern that Jackson, who is currently set to play under the fifth-year option on his rookie deal, will hold out. It remains to be seen if he'll show up to organized team activities this week, and if Jackson is a no-show, it will certainly bring more attention to his contract status. The Ravens would much rather have Jackson on the field throwing to his young receivers, but even if he isn't present this week, he'll still be regarded as a high-end QB1 target looking to rebound from a down year in 2021.
