Baltimore-Baltimore Ravens has exercised a fifth-year option for former Louisville star quarterback Lamar Jackson. The organization announced on Monday.
According to the terms of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, the fifth-year option for the 2022 season is projected to be worth $ 23.016 million. Jackson is heading towards the final year of his four-year $ 9,471 million newcomer contract.
The 6-foot-2, £ 212 quarterback is currently signing Baltimore for the next two seasons, but talks between Jackson and Ravens about extending the long-term contract continue.
“It’s definitely fluid. Lamar and I talked about it. It’s important to us and important to him.” General Manager Eric Decosta said the team’s pre-draft media conference. “I’m sure we’ll continue to talk about this, and I think we’ll have good news someday,” he said.
Since joining the league in 2018, Pompano Beach, Florida has been one of the NFL’s most electrical players. He led Ravens to a 30-7 record as a starter, including winning the 2019 NFL MVP. In a total of 46 games, he has accumulated a total of 9,991 yards of attacks and 87 touchdowns.
Jackson is arguably the top player in Louisville football history. He set a number of records during his three-year tenure at the Cardinals, ending his college career with a 9,043 yard pass, a 4,132 yard rush and a total of 119 touchdowns. He was the first school to win the Heisman Trophy after accumulating a total of 51 touchdowns, totaling 5,114 yards in 2016.
