Lamar Jackson became eligible for a contract extension after the 2020 season. Yet, he remains without one.

Not long after Ravens coach John Harbaugh said both sides are motivated to get a long-term deal completed, the quarterback said he hopes to get it done before the start of the season.

“I think so. I think so. I think so. We’ll have to see,” Jackson said, via Sarah Ellison the co-host of Ravens Vault. “There will probably be a cutoff at some point . . . so hopefully.”

Jackson is entering the fifth-year option of his rookie deal with a $23.016 million salary for this season. He doesn’t have an agent, instead negotiating his own deal with General Manager Eric DeCosta and acknowledged that “we’re still talking right now.”
