While Lamar and the Ravens were very vocal about Jackson being a quarterback, it seems other options are being tested. According to Jamison Hensley who is the Ravens’ ESPN reporter says John Harbaugh is enjoying seeing the possibilities of having two quarterbacks on the field at once.
It looks like Lamar going without the agent continues to have been an okay move for him. Jackson’s deal is reported to be worth $9,471,649 with a $4,968,472 signing bonus. Congrats to Lamar and his family!
