Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is focused on preparing for the 2022 NFL season, taking the necessary steps to improve so his team can contend for the Super Bowl. While Jackson remains entrenched in his dedication to the present, it seems the Ravens are baffled by his disinterest in securing his future, Matt Johnson of Sportsnaut reports.

Jackson wants to be the face of the Ravens’ franchise for years to come. However, Baltimore finds itself in the same position for the second consecutive offseason. The front office keeps pushing to sign Jackson to a multi-year extension, one that would make him one of the highest paid NFL players. Based on multiple reports, Jackson is only focused on football.

After skipping voluntary workouts, the 2019 NFL MVP reported for mandatory minicamp and took part in practice with teammates. When facing reporters, though, Jackson said get expects to spend his career in Baltimore, but he also wouldn’t commit to his interest in signing a long-term deal this summer.

On the You Pod to Win the Game podcast, Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports shared some insight into how the Ravens’ front office is feeling about the lack of contract talks with Jackson.
 

“The Ravens, I can tell you are mystified. They’re just…they don’t understand the lack of engagement on a contract.”


 

It’s easy to understand Baltimore’s perspective. It wants the security of knowing Jackson is under contract through the next five-plus seasons, providing clarity for the team’s long-term salary-cap projections and roster building.
