He even guessed correctly the football player played on the offensive side of the ball — a wide receiver? A lineman?

He just couldn't place him.

So Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, the 2019 NFL MVP and the player whose identity was in question, handed over a crisp $100 bill nonetheless (the deal had originally been that the other man would receive cash if he could name Jackson).

Jackson posted the exchange in three short videos on Instagram. In the third one, the man excitedly rushes back toward Jackson.

"You're on my team man, the Baltimore Ravens. They got a good defense, Lamar ..." he said, possibly still unaware he was interacting with Jackson.

"That's me!" Jackson exclaims.

"I knew I was going to figure it out," the man said.

Later on Twitter, Jackson joked: "If he would've said (running back) I would've kept my (money)."
