Lamar Jackson’s recent activity on Twitter raises eyebrows about his current contract situation with the Baltimore Ravens.
Right now, there is a public standoff between the Baltimore Ravens and their franchise quarterback and former league MVP Lamar Jackson. Jackson has made it clear that the deadline for a contract extension is Week One.
However, Jackson’s recent activity on Twitter is raising some eyebrows. Not only did Jackson respond to a fan asking about his contract, saying the Ravens did not offer more than a $250 million contract, but he then liked a tweet about Jackson photoshopped in a Miami Dolphins jersey hoisting a Super Bowl trophy (Jackson is from Florida). Barstool Sports captured the conversation.
Are the Dolphins trying to tamper again? After what they just went through? Probably not, but it raises questions about how contract talks are going down between Jackson and Ravens management.
Lamar Jackson’s Twitter activity leaves many questions about his contract with the Baltimore Ravens
Since being drafted 32nd overall back in 2018, Lamar Jackson has had a very eventful career with the Baltimore Ravens. As a rookie, he helped lead them to a division title and a Wild Card playoff berth. The following season, Jackson was named NFL MVP and led Baltimore to the top seed of the AFC playoffs before losing to the Titans.
In 2020, Jackson won his first playoff game, avenging the loss to Tennessee before losing to Buffalo. Last season, riddled by injuries, the Ravens failed to make the postseason. Jackson struggled, throwing for just over 2,800 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. Jackson also ran for over 700 yards and two scores.
It will be interesting to see whether or not the Ravens are willing to pay Lamar Jackson’s asking price to keep him around. However, we just can’t ignore him liking a picture on Twitter of himself in a Miami Dolphins jersey. Seriously though, are the Dolphins back to potential tampering? Probably not, but speculation never fails to make its presence felt online and in the 21st century in general.
