Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Lamar Jackson's absence from OTAs: 'It's for him to talk about'

It's May 25, and Lamar Jackson still isn't close to signing a contract extension.

As was the case in March, Jackson still doesn't seem too interested in discussing an extension. He's not in attendance for Baltimore's organized team activities, either.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh fielded questions about Jackson's contract situation and absence from OTAs on Wednesday. He had almost nothing to say on the matter, Nick Shook of reports.

"I'll just let Lamar speak for himself on that," Harbaugh said, via ESPN's Jamison Hensley. "It's for him to talk about."

Despite its surface appearance, the Ravens don't seem to be too worried about Jackson's absence. The quarterback doesn't stand all that much to gain from OTAs outside of starting to build a rapport with his new starting center, Tyler Linderbaum, rookie tight ends Charlie Kolar and Isaiah Likely, and a half-dozen new faces at receiver. Working out on his own isn't groundbreaking, nor would it damage the franchise's immediate chances of success.

The news of Jackson's absence, then, isn't really news -- it's just a byproduct of the ongoing contract situation. The lack of movement on the matter, however, continues to be significant.
