As he recently made clear, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson needs an agent now more than ever. Will he appoint an agent?
The prevailing thought in league circles is that it wouldn’t be.
For starters, although Jackson and his mother did speak to one or more agents from time to time, there was never a serious sense that Jackson planned to hire one of them. Some believe the goal is simply to choose their minds for ideas. More importantly, there is a belief that Jackson will not hire an agent at this point due to the possible perception that he will admit his mistake in not hiring him sooner.
And make no mistake about it – it was a mistake.
Jackson was eligible for a new contract in 2021. He instead earned $1.77 million that year. Last year, under the fifth-year option, he made $23 million. That’s a total of $24.77 million over the past two years.
