The Baltimore Ravens signed quarterback Lamar Jackson to a five-year, $260 million dollar contract with $185 million in practical guarantees. It was a long road for both sides to reach an agreement, but now they can put their contract saga in the rear-view mirror as they try to compete to win a Super Bowl championship.
One of the big storylines that happened during the standoff was Jackson’s public trade request, which he said happened on March 2nd. When asked on “The Lounge” podcast about the true meaning of his trade request, Jackson revealed that it was “nothing serious”, saying it was part of the business.
We had Lamar Jackson on The Lounge podcast today. He said the trade request was "nothing serious."
“That was just getting the ball rolling. That’s part of business."
Stay tuned in for the full interview later today. There were more insights that didn't come out in the presser.
