As a freshman at Louisville in 2015, Jackson played in 12 games and made eight starts in the Cardinals' 8–5 season.


Over the years, most analysts have cited improvement in his passing ability, but he is rarely mentioned with the elite passers in the league.

When Jackson fires a game-winning touchdown pass, the reaction will include how he increased his value and how the Ravens dropped the ball by not getting an extension done.


The Ravens and Lamar Jackson were never going to reach an agreement on a long-term contract before the start of this season.


Jackson will play the 2022 season on the fifth-year option of his rookie contract, making $23,016,000 fully guaranteed.
