Those who have seen it thought that it was his way to put pressure on the organization to have his contract extension done.
After all, there’s not a lot of time left because he will be playing the 2022 season under a fifth-year option.
It means that he will be a free agent after this season if he and the Ravens don’t agree to terms on a new contract.
But while he can use his platform to get the deal done sooner, he would rather channel his energy to help his team win.

Jackson tweeted, “I love @NFL we gone turn up this year I appreciate the @Ravens for coming back in the first round and picking me up we gone eat.”
He posted this in response to an update on the NFL’s Twitter account regarding his achievements so far.
In just four seasons, the former Louisville standout has been a Pro Bowler, an All-Pro, and a unanimous Most Valuable Player winner.
He has the most wins by a quarterback before turning 25 years old with 37 and holds the single-season rushing record for a quarterback.
The League Puts Jackson’s Achievements Into Perspective
It’s fascinating that the NFL tweeted this after the recent ESPN poll conducted among scouts, players, coaches, and executives.
That tweet is a reminder of Jackson’s greatness which could be often overlooked.
Likewise, it is worth pointing out that he has led the Ravens to the playoffs in three of his four seasons as the starter.
They were on their way to the postseason last year, if not for his season-ending ankle injury.
To highlight his importance to the squad, the Ravens did not win again after he went out and failed to secure a playoff spot.NEXT: Former NFL QB Shares More Support For Lamar Jackson As Elite
