The two-time Pro Bowl quarterback is coming off a disappointing year that saw his season cut short due to an ankle injury, missing the final four games of the year for the Ravens.
There was some controversy surrounding Jackson after he missed the team’s voluntary OTAs this offseason.
This led to rumors surrounding Jackson’s future with the Ravens, with Jackson’s contract looming next offseason as he is in the final year of his rookie deal.
He quickly dispelled those rumors by appearing at Ravens minicamp in June, and it seems Jackson is good to go for the upcoming 2022 season.
Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta discussed Lamar’s contract situation back in March and said that the organization would “work at Lamar’s urgency” on a future deal.
It appears that Jackson may finally be ready to discuss a long-term deal if his latest social media activity is any indication.

It’s unclear whether or not that means that he wants to get paid by the Ravens, or by another potential team next offseason, but it certainly seems like a bit of an ultimatum to the Ravens front office.
Jackson’s appearance at Ravens minicamp was a positive sign for his future with the team, but it will only get more complicated as time goes on without a long-term contract in Baltimore.
If he were to hit the open market next year, he would certainly have his fair share of teams interested in him to be their franchise quarterback moving forward.
