Lamar Jackson wants a contract whose entire amount will be guaranteed, rejecting a $ 250 million deal from the Baltimore Ravens.
At least that’s what ESPN reported on Sunday. Jackson recently accepted the franchise player tag, so he’ll make about $23 million this year.
Jackson would like to imitate Deshaun Watson, whose $230 million pact with the Cleveland Browns is completely guaranteed.
Having appeared in 12 games in 2021, Jackson, 25, joined his receivers 64.4% of the time when throwing the ball. He helped his team advance 2,882 yards this way, finding a teammate 16 times in the end zone. He was the victim of 13 interceptions. He himself ran for 762 yards, scoring two majors using his feet.
Jackson achieved superstar status in 2019, being named the Tour’s MVP after completing his first full NFL campaign.
