A significant report emerged about Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson on Thursday. It stated that someone by the name of Ken Francis reached out to NFL teams to negotiate contracts on his behalf. Despite that, Jackson completely denied the allegations shortly after they emerged.

A memo was sent out to NFL teams after Francis reportedly reached out to numerous teams. It stated that teams are not allowed to talk to Francis because he is not a certified agent by the NFLPA.

Jackson took to social media to address these allegations, replying to a specific tweet from NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero on the topic.

“Stop lying that man never tried to negotiate for me,” tweeted Jackson on Thursday.

Francis was also asked about his reported discussions with NFL teams, saying that he has not contacted teams on Jackson’s behalf.

“‘I don’t speak for Lamar,” Francis told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

It certainly seems suspicious that this memo would even be sent by the NFL if there was no contact at all. Many around the NFL world echoed these suspicions on social media in response to Jackson’s tweet.

Francis also told Jeremy Fowler that he has a business relationship with Lamar Jackson. According to Francis, the two are business partners on portable gym equipment, and that is the extent of their business deals.

This whole situation is certainly an odd one. It likely doesn’t help his attempt to seek a long-term deal. Whether it’s with the Ravens or another team willing to make an offer sheet on him.
