Lamar Jackson remains hopeful he\'ll agree to a contract extension with the Baltimore Ravens, but the quarterback doesn\'t want negotiations to drag into the regular season.
\"I think so,\" Jackson said when asked if he thought a deal would get done. \"I think so. I think so. We\'ll have to see.\"
When then asked if a deal would happen before the Ravens open the season on Sept. 11 against the New York Jets, Jackson responded: \"I said there is going to be a cutoff [in talks]. So, hopefully.\"
Jackson, one of the few players in the NFL who doesn\'t have an agent and represents himself, has been eligible for an extension since last year.
