Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson turned down what league sources believe was an offer worth about $250 million.
The Ravens also balked at Jackson’s wish for a fully guaranteed deal similar to Deshaun Watson’s, sources told ESPN, prompting the sides to table contract talks until after the 2022 season.
The Ravens proposed a six-year contract believed to pay Jackson a higher average salary and more guaranteed money than deals signed this summer by Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson and Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray.
I love the Ravens, but if I’m Lamar Jackson, ain’t no way in hell I’m going out there on the field.
