Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson said early this month that he hopes to have a new contract before the start of training camp and that the thought of holding out of camp if a deal didn’t get done wasn’t on his mind.

Jackson and the Ravens haven’t come to an agreement yet, but that didn’t change Jackson’s mind about holding out. The Ravens shared a video of Jackson arriving to the team’s facility on Thursday.

Ravens rookies reported on Tuesday and the full squad isn’t due in until June 26, so Jackson is getting in a few days early. Whether that’s a sign of progress toward an extension remains to be seen, but it’s a good sign that any talks haven’t gone in a negative direction.

Thursday’s news that the Cardinals and Kyler Murray have come to terms on a five-year deal worth $230.5 million with $160 million in guaranteed money could become a talking point for the two sides as it gave Murray the second-highest annual average salary in the league.

  1. He’s not very excited to come back and play another season with the Ravens. His preference would be to go to a team where he would have a chance to compete for a championship.

  2. Another organization that’s going to make a bad deal for a so so quarterback who’s already proven he can’t rise to the top when the pressure is on, and the season is on the line. Enjoy the mediocrity Baltimore that’s all you’re gonna get with this guy under center

    It’s also comments like this that Peyton Manning was the subject of ridicule forever too. And I’m not saying Lamar is Peyton. Peyton had a terrible playoff record early on, but he knew how to get his team to the playoffs. And that is EXACTLY what Lamar does.
