After several months of fruitless negotiations with a Baltimore Ravens On a new contract, quarterback Lamar Jackson appears to be on his way to signing with another NFL team.
He used their non-exclusive signature, which allowed him to negotiate a contract with any other team, but there seems to be no interest in him around the league.
Most recently, the Ravens caved in and gave Jackson a five-year, $260 million contract to keep him.
Jackson didn’t appear in their first OTA session, but he did attend their second session, and he said he expects to attend their entire OTA session, over Jamison Hensley.
Lamar Jackson was asked if he expects to be here for the rest of OTAs.
“Yes,” Jackson replied. “Yes, I do.”

The Ravens made the playoffs last season with a 10-7 record, despite Jackson missing their final five games with a knee injury, and their only championship game, a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
They hope to improve this season, especially with the addition of three-time Pro Bowl receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
Beckham may not be who he was a few years ago when he racked up over 1,300 yards in his first three seasons, but Baltimore hopes he can regain his old form to give Jackson a chance to win.
In his four years as the starter, Jackson has never had a better player at the position, and the only reliable player he has had is Mark Andrews, who is one of the best players at his position.
