NFL Insider: Despite deadline, “I don’t get the feeling” Jackson deal is coming

Lamar Jackson’s deadline day has arrived – and one NFL insider said he doesn’t see any smoke signals that a new contract is imminent.

Things can progress quickly at the 11th hour when it comes to Week 1 deadlines, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport noted.

But as of early Friday, “I don’t sense any momentum toward a deal,” he told Good Morning Football.

“Anything is possible,” he said. “But I don’t get the feeling a huge … fully guaranteed deal is coming.”

Jackson has made his frustration known about his lack of a deal, sitting out preseason games to make his point.

Now 25 years, old, he’s on the fifth year option with the Baltimore Ravens, which carries a $23 million cap hit.
