The team picked up their fifth-year option worth $23 million to keep Jackson for at least one more year.
However, he is set to receive a mega-deal if he does well for the Ravens.
Achieving the ultimate team goal makes it a must for Baltimore to keep him for the long term.
Therefore, Jackson will use his desire to win a Super Bowl as motivation to recover from his ankle injury and bring glory to the Ravens.

The former Louisville standout agreed with Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant that he wants a title.
Morant will have his opportunity to compete for the crown once the NBA playoffs start on April 16.
Meanwhile, Jackson has offseason workouts, training camp, and preseason ahead before the season starts.
But even if the campaign is still months away, the 2019 league MVP is already establishing his target.
He doesn’t want to just compete in the playoffs anymore.
Instead, he will commit in hopes of winning it all.
Silencing The Naysayers
Jackson has become of the league’s top quarterbacks thanks to his versatility and mobility.
He’s the only quarterback to have multiple 1,000-yard rushing seasons.
Last season, he also completed 66 percent of his passes and had a 400-yard game.
But faltering in the playoffs has been the most significant criticism about him.
Jackson led the Ravens to only one playoff victory in four tries, even if they’ve had double-digit wins in those years.
Leading Baltimore to the championship will shake off his reputation as a play-caller who is only good during the regular season.
