Lamar Jackson, Ravens

Lamar Jackson: I Want To Win A Super Bowl Here

Lamar Jackson and Baltimore are once again aligned, and all it took was the most lucrative contract in NFL history.

The Ravens quarterback signed a five-year, $260 million contract on Thursday thus ending speculation over his future.

Lamar Jackson made a public trade request in March, when the organization responded with the non-exclusive franchise tag. 

Now, Lamar Jackson is excited to work with an upgraded receiving corps and learn a new playbook ahead of 2023.

Baltimore has added superstar Odell Beckham. Jr and drafted Zay Flowers to a WR room featuring Bateman, Andrews and Likely. As well as that, Todd Monken joins as their new offensive coordinator. 

“I’m very eager, to be honest with you,” Jacksoin said. “I think I told someone, I want to throw for 6,000 yards with the weapons we have. … I’m not an individual award type of guy or a stat watcher. I just want to do that because no one has ever done that, and I feel like we have the weapons to do it. We’ve got explosive guys. Like coach said, the new additions Zay, OBJ, and we got (Rashod) Bateman gonna be 100 percent healthy, too. … Can’t forget about Mark (Andrews), can’t forget about my boy Mark, and (Isaiah) Likely. So, can’t wait to get rolling.”

While it’s easy to say as the league’s highest-paid player, Jackson says his negotiation tactics were just that – business.

“To be honest with you, I really didn’t care for other teams, really,” Jackson said. “I just really wanted to get something done here. I wanted to be here. I was like, man, OK, other teams cool, but I want to be a Raven. … I really wanted to get this done before anything, before my time up and branch off somewhere else. I really want to finish my career here and win a Super Bowl here.”
