The teams have agreed to a rich, long-term contract extension … as in 5 years for $260 million. This tops Jalen Hurts’ recent $255 million deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.

And John Harbaugh has to love it.

Jackson was ready to roll via a Twitter post saying he is going to be around the flock for the next five years.
