Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is expected to get a contract extension sooner or later.

According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, Jackson’s deal is expected to average between $40 million and $45 million per season. His deal is seen as the most likely deal from his 2018 draft class colleagues, including Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield.

“It wouldn’t surprise people in the league if Jackson’s deal comes behind Mahomes’ average of $45 million a year and ahead of Prescott’s $40 million, but as always the key will be to keep an eye on structure and guarantees. Graziano writes. .

Jackson is unlikely to top the $45 million a year Mahomes receives, having failed to lead the Ravens past the second round of the playoffs in his three-year career. Mahomes, meanwhile, has led the Kansas City Chiefs to two consecutive Super Bowls and three consecutive AFC Championship Games.

However, Jackson put on a promising campaign for 2020, knocking Baltimore out of the first round of the playoffs for the first time since 2014.

The 2019 MVP compiled a 30-7 record as Baltimore’s starter while throwing 7,085 yards. He also has 2,906 rushing yards and is the first QB in NFL history to have multiple rushing seasons over 1,000 yards.

Alongside Mahomes ($45 million AAV) and Prescott ($40 million AAV), Deshaun Watson ($39 million AAV) and Russell Wilson ($35 million AAV) are among the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL, according to Spotrac.
