Plaxico Burress: “Let’s just keep it G, people have problems with Lamar Jackson because of the way he plays the game, the way that he talks, the way that he dresses, the way that he carries himself, the way that he looks, let’s just put that out there first and foremost. And then when you get to playing the quarterback position, Kyler Murray is not a better player than Lamar Jackson. If we are giving out contracts based off potential and stats, Lamar Jackson wins in every category except completed passes. He’s won 35 games, the most in NFL history before the age of 25, games started he wins in that category against Kyler Murray, wins, losses, touchdowns… In what category is Kyler Murray better than Lamar Jackson? People sit there and give him hate, he was not the first pick in the Draft, he was the 32nd pick in the Draft. It seems like he gets the number one pick criticism when he was the 32nd pick in the Draft. People have problems with Lamar Jackson because he’s Lamar Jackson.” (Audio Above, Full Segment Below)

Listen to Plaxico Burress, former Pro Bowl wide receiver, and current Fox Sports Radio host for ‘Up on Game’ with LaVar Arrington and TJ Houshmandzadeh detail the real reason why he thinks Lamar Jackson has yet to receive a contract extension with the Baltimore Ravens.

Despite other young quarterbacks the likes of Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, Kyler Murray, and Josh Allen already having been awarded their first lucrative extension, Jackson, a former MVP with a 37-12 career record, will go into his fifth year without a new deal.

Check out the audio above as Burress explains why he thinks people have a problem with the way Lamar ‘looks’, ‘talks’, ‘dresses’, and ‘carries himself’, and questions why the playoff-winless Kyler would receive a new contract before Lamar.
