Expressing his desire to keep Lamar Jackson in Baltimore for many years, General Manager Eric DeCosta said a contract extension for Jackson this offseason is a possibility.
Having finished his third NFL season, Jackson is now eligible to negotiate a long-term contract with the Ravens. Jackson is already under contract for next season, and the Ravens have a May 3 deadline to exercise a fifth-year option on Jackson, who was a first-round pick in 2018.
Two of the league's top young quarterbacks, Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Deshaun Watson of the Houston Texans, agreed to a long-term deal after finishing their third seasons. DeCosta said he would be speaking to Jackson in the near future.
