You know I’m so tired of the talk about Lamar Jackson and a new contract and how with each marquee quarterback who signs another record contract, it only bumps the price for the Ravens. And for God’s sake, what is Eric DeCosta waiting for? Or so they say…REPEATEDLY.

Let me tell you what Eric DeCosta is waiting for.

• He’s waiting for consistency.

• He’s waiting for development as a passer.

• He’s waiting to see how Lamar responds to improved talent around him.

• He’s waiting for a deeper run into the playoffs.

• He’s waiting for the Ravens to be a true Super Bowl contender with Lamar at the controls.

He’s waiting for Lamar to answer the phone.

Without those things, why should the Ravens make Lamar the highest paid player in the history of the NFL? That’s what he’s aiming for. When he visited with LeBron James on The Shop, in so many words, Lamar was asked what he can learn from LeBron. He talked of being a champion…of being a billionaire. And then he put a bow on it by saying:

“That’s just what I’ve been thinking about since I was a little kid. Being a billionaire and being a champion.”

Lamar allegedly ghosts the Ravens when they try to reach him during the offseason. He is apparently in no hurry for a new deal. So the Ravens should follow suit, particularly when you consider that now, contract talks START at $230M guaranteed, thanks to Jimmy Haslam and his merry band of knuckleheads in Cleveland.

Reading the tea leaves, it seems like it’s no hurries, no worries for Lamar. The Ravens should follow suit.

Want to be a billionaire, Lamar? Go be a champion first. The riches will follow.

Until then, Lamar’s $23M number in 2022 looks quite alright to me.

It’s time to shut up and let Lamar put up.
