LAMAR Jackson has spoken out about a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that the Baltimore Ravens have offered their quarterback a $200 million guaranteed deal.
The former MVP quarterback took to Twitter to address the report, tweeting a GIF of a person raising eyebrows and grinning sarcastically.
Jackson wrote: “133/3 year full warranty but I need an agent?” Adding laughing emojis.
He ended the tweet series: “People are throwing [poop emoji] on the wall and hope it sticks.”
It’s unclear if Jackson claims the Ravens offered him a three-year, $133 million, full-guarantee contract.
However, it shows how chaotic the situation has become.
The 26-year-old QB’s contract talks have been the focus of NFL news for two seasons.
Jackson has no agent and details of the negotiations have been everywhere.
Assuming he seeks a deal on the scale of what Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson got, the two sides still seem miles apart in negotiations.
Last week, the Ravens gave Jackson a non-exclusive franchise tag, meaning he can negotiate with other teams.
