Despite reports to the contrary, Lamar Jackson is not using his mother to negotiate his contract extension with the Baltimore Ravens.
“She may be advising him, but she’s not negotiating with the Ravens,” Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk reported of Jackson’s mother, Felicia Jones.
The quarterback has never had a formal agent, as Jones negotiated Jackson’s rookie deal after he was a first-round pick in 2018. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network said on the Pat McAfee Show recently that she still acts as his “business manager” (warning: NSFW language):
