QB Lamar Jackson signs rookie deal with the Ravens
Former Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson has officially signed his rookie contract with the Baltimore Ravens, per the team's official twitter account Julian Wilson Jersey. Officially a Raven. QB @Lj_era8 has signed his rookie contract! Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) June 5, 2018Lamar Jackson was the 32nd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Since he was selected in the first-round, his rookie contract will include a fifth-year option The exact contract details have yet to be released, but with the new CBA, rookie deals are essentially set in stone.Although Baltimore's interest in Jackson was well-documented before the draft Trevon Coley Jersey, this was still a rather surprising move. In order to acquire Jackson, the Ravens traded the 52nd overall pick, 125th overall pick and their 2019 second-rounder to the Eagles in exchange for the 32nd overall pick and 132nd overall pick. On paper, Jackson's skill set seemingly fits perfectly with Marty Mornhinweg's hybrid west coast offense. With Joe Flacco's play declining, Baltimore needed to find a successor sooner rather than later. Not to mention Flacco's contract has put the team in an interesting dilemma Rick Wagner Jersey. They could realistically part ways with Flacco as soon as next season if they designate him as a post-June 1 cut. If Baltimore elects to do that, they would save have $8 million in dead money for the 2019 and 2020 season, while saving $18.5 million in 2019, per SpoTrac.The pressure is now on Joe Flacco to deliver this season. With an entirely new wide receiver corps and two pass-catching rookie tight ends Chris Moore Jersey, Flacco appears to have the offensive playmakers needed to succeed If he fails to deliver, this could very well be his last season in Baltimore.With Jackson officially signing his contract, Hayden Hurst is the last 2018 draft pick who has yet to sign his rookie deal. It is still far too early to be concerned about Hurst not signing, and given his attitude about being a Raven, it would be a surprise to see a holdout.
