Ravens agree to extension with QB Lamar Jackson and Twitter rejoices

There’s a news dump from Friday, and then there’s a news dump from Day 1 of the NFL draft.

That’s precisely where news of Lamar Jackson’s extension fell when the Baltimore Ravens announced they agreed in principle to sign the former 2019 NFL MVP to a five-year contract extension.

There was much consternation during the offseason when the Ravens placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Jackson. In theory, any team could also have dealt with Jackson. The problem is that they would have to give up two first-round picks to acquire Jackson’s playing rights on top of the new contract.

Twitter was relieved that Jackson agreed in principle with the Ravens. These are some of the best shots.
