Lamar Jackson announced a hard deadline of Friday for contract extension discussions with the Baltimore Ravens. Ben Maller was speculating as to what reason Jackson could have for doing this when the move makes no sense and is unlikely to work.
Ben Maller: "What he's doing here is following the boiler plate approach for athletes. Since he does not have a formal agent, Lamar Jackson is attempting to navigate the murky waters around Maryland on his own. He has pivoted now, turning to our feline friends. No no no, not a kitty cat...a copy cat. Mimicking what he has seen other players do."
