Lamar Jackson Is Only in It for the Money

As the saga surrounding Lamar Jackson’s employment status continues, it’s becoming clear that he holds allegiance to nothing but his paycheck. He has made it clear he wants more guaranteed money than Deshaun Watson got and while Doug respects his honesty, it’s not really a good look for Lamar. There doesn’t seem to be any consideration for which team he plays for or whether that squad can be successful after spending such an exorbitant amount of money. He’s painted himself into a corner and it’s unlikely any team in the league is going to want to bring him onboard with that attitude.

Doug Gottlieb: “He doesn’t care about the Ravens; he doesn’t care about anything else...For him it’s about one thing: I want more money than what Deshaun Watson got guaranteed. That’s it. That’s the only thing he cares about.”
