    What is 7% of 185 million (agents take)? That should be enough for 4 more Lamar Jackson generations?

    The TV personalities are mostly full of :bscow:! They were all over Lamar's jockstrap. Many of them even tried to make the fact that the Rats weren't bowing to all of his unreasonable demands a racist thing which is pathetically disingenuous! :rolleyes::facepalm:

    No, the Browns were just THAT desperate. Like BobbyBiz said, the Ravens aren't that stupid. That's why they are a constant threat.

    Even though I hate Harbaugh more than sirloin tips in my Cinnamon Toast Crunch, you have to respect their approach and consistency.

    That being said, this will set them back years. This Rb...er...Qb's legs are already starting to go. All those shots he used to barely slip before, are going to start landing with greater frequency. And let's be honest, he's not Ben. He can't be effective while taking a pounding.

    We don't have the variables, but this essentially is the same amount they offered last year, sans the risen amount to make him the 'highest paid'. Last years 131 guaranteed supposedly included a 50 million bonus that would have kicked in this year, so the guaranteed bucks are essentially the same. What Lamar did was risk playing last year without a deal, and get nothing had he got severely injured, for reported and extra 2 million a year over the previous offer. I think an agent would have had the balls to say sign it you idiot.

    That's probably a scary thing for a lot of agents. Obviously, Lamar and his advisors did well here.

    Really, it comes down to, Talent talks, and bull**** walks.

    If there is one major silver lining for Lamar Jackson (and possibly NFL Players as well) is that Lamar received his contract without the need of an Official Agent. Long story short?! Basically speaking... 100% of the money is his.


    Granted, not the fully guaranteed deal he would have liked but he still managed to do so without an Official Agent. Wonder how many more players would be willing to try this by themselves?! I doubt a very high number of players would but I do believe that number of said players could be greater moving forward... even if a little.

    For most it's a dumb idea. There's all kinds of things that get slipped into contracts at that level.

    Him being the face of a franchise though and basically holding them hostage with cap space, gives him more leverage to do it. It also, tends to lead to more scrutiny on the contract details, so they don't try to slip other crap in there benefiting the team.

    I do that Baltimore will score points, but they’ll do it by letting Lamar be Lamar, and if he gets hurt being himself… oh well.

    Agreed. That's why I laugh when people think they can change a player by the time they get to the NFL. They can polish some things, but You are not going to change them most of the time.

    Either Baltimores Secondary has improved exponentially or Lamar and Co. were that bad.

    I think part of their struggles stem from having a new OC who came from the college ranks.

    The Ravens just signed Jadaveon Clowney today. Hopefully he will cause dissention and be a quitter with them like he was for the Browns last year.
