Lamar Jackson is going to be the Aaron Judge of the NFL in 2022: The Baltimore Ravens quarterback is betting on himself.
Jackson set a deadline of Friday to reach a contract extension with Baltimore and the talks failed to come to a deal.
So, the Heisman winner from Louisville in 2016 will play out the final season of his contract.
Jackson will make $23 million in the 2022 season and will be franchise tagged after that.
