Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens seem headed towards an offseason full of controversy. That offseason is not getting started off on the right foot, as Jackson and the Ravens are reportedly $100 million apart in contract talks.

Jackson and the Ravens’ $100 million difference will lead to eventual trade talks, via ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. However, teams are reluctant as they believe Baltimore will franchise tag their star quarterback. Whatever the outcome may be, Jackson and Ravens aren’t currently seeing eye to eye.

“Baltimore and Jackson could possibly be $100 million apart there, a huge gap to bridge,” Fowler wrote. “Those trade calls are coming. I don’t get the sense that the process has heated up, in part because teams are assuming Jackson will be tagged. It’s still very early on this one.”

The Ravens offered Jackson a five-year, $250 million contract extension. However, with only $133 million guaranteed, Jackson declined the deal. Now, his future with the Ravens is in limbo.
