    Lamar finally speaks...

    I feel much more confident that Lamar will be a Raven for the long haul after that presser. He "expects so2 about being a Raven long term and he's engaging in contract talks now.

    He wouldn't rule out a hold out if a deal doesn't get done but that doesn't worry me much. It just puts the ball in the Ravens court about getting something done and, in a way, it's a positive sign - Lamar wants a deal before Week One.

    Shit. I can't change the title.
    I was about to post when I noticed I hadn't titled it, so I added one in a hurry. Too much of a hurry. It's shameful shit.

    Jackson said he’s usually at 205 or 208 for season. He’s currently at 220 and said he feels good.

    Lamar Jackson said he knew about the Hollywood Brown trade ahead of time. He said it’s all “part of the business.”

    His “WTF” tweet on draft day was partly related to Brown being already in Arizona.

    Jackson said he does feel worthy of a contract extension, rejecting the assertion that he wants to wait to win a SB before signing.

    Jackson said the Deshaun Watson deal hasn’t had impact on his negotiations. Said he’s his own player.

    Lamar Jackson said he asked his teammates if it was OK if he could do work away from OTAs.

    He said the absence wasn’t contract related.

    Lamar Jackson said he stayed away from voluntary workouts to “stay away from the grind.” Said his absence was not contract related.

    This is Ravens QB Lamar Jackson's accurate quote about why he stayed away from OTAs. I misheard initially. “I just wanted to stay away and just grind."
    Jackson also reiterated that his absence from voluntary workouts was not contract related.

    Great work collecting all these quotes, Jam.

    I'm not sure Zrebiec got that last quote right. I thought Lamar said he stayed away "to grind" rather than to avoid the grind.

    You bet and you are correct. I reposted Jeff Z's self-correction a couple minutes after the initial misquote.

    Awesome! A whole lot of what people on this board and the media assumed was just plain wrong. Nice to get some answers.

    Re: Lamar finally speaks...

    The fact that he is noticeably bigger and said he weighs about 220 now is proof that he was indeed grinding.
    This reminds me of that year Michael Jordan finally packed on some muscle in the offseason because he was tired of Detroit and other teams beating the shit out of him in the playoffs every year. Yes, he was considered one of the best and most exciting players at the time, but could not get over the hump once the playoffs happened. Feels like a similar story arc developing.
