The Baltimore Ravens are the latest team looking to keep their franchise QB. According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Ravens have sent their star QB an updated roster. This news comes shortly after the announcement that the Philadelphia Eagles made QB Jalen Hurts the highest-paid player in the league. Unfortunately for the Ravens, the Hurts news couldn’t have come at a worse time for the time in their negotiations. It now seems Jackson will have a comparative contract on which to base his wants.
Jackson has been a start in his time in Baltimore. The former Heisman Trophy winner has added the MVP Award to his list of accolades. However, Jackson has yet to see any playoff success. Also, Jackson’s numbers have declined since his 2019 MVP season. Since that season, Jackson has only reached 20 touchdown passes or more just one time. But injuries have also played a role in that statistic. Jackson hasn’t been available for the full season in the past two years. But for Jackson, he doesn’t seem to believe that’s an issue.
Baltimore Ravens Send Jackson Another Offer
Jackson’s injuries have played a huge role in his off-season frustrations. The team’s around the league have been afraid to pull the trigger on inquiring about the superstar QB for that reason. But the Ravens have stated time and time again they have no interest in dealing Jackson. The Ravens recently added star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to the roster. A move that almost certainly made Jackson feel better about the future in Baltimore. However, it hasn’t been guaranteed the team will keep him.
Hurts had a memorable season in Philadelphia. The franchise believes with this past season’s success, they can build even more success. However, the Ravens and Jackson seem to be in a stalemate with so many moving parts involved. But one has to wonder that if Jackson had an agent, he could be in Hurts’ shoes right now. Will the Baltimore Ravens and Jackson come to an agreement? Or will Hurts’ deal become the straw that breaks the break between the two? For the latest NFL news, keep it right here with HNHH.[Via]
