Around the North: Ravens and Lamar could be $100M off in contract talks
The Cleveland Browns gave quarterback Deshaun Watson an unprecedented amount of guaranteed money, and that may impact how other teams handle QB contracts. Lamar Jackson of the division rival Baltimore Ravens has finished his rookie deal and is looking for a massive extension. Fans can understand why the onetime league MVP would want to be paid what he thinks he is worth.
But according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the two sides are nowhere close in negotiations. Fowler suggests that they could be as much as $100 million apart in the negotiations. So now the questions are: Which side caves first, and will the Ravens be in search of a new franchise quarterback this offseason?
The Ravens and Lamar Jackson could be $100 million apart on guaranteed money, per @JFowlerESPN.
