Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson provided some encouragement on Thursday to fans hoping for his future with the organization. In his first media session of the season, the 2019 MVP said he's been in contract talks with general manager Eric DeCosta regarding an extension.

Jackson, who didn't show for the team's voluntary workouts, told reporters that he expects to stay with the Ravens for his entire career. He added that he feels worthy of an extension and rejected the idea that he would wait until winning a Super Bowl to sign one.

"I just wanted to stay away and just grind," he said regarding OTAs. "I just wanted to come back and just see how it felt. I feel good. I asked my guys how they'd feel if I stayed home, they were like, 'You know, it's cool.'"

The quarterback also said he added at least 12 pounds of muscle this offseason, saying he feels better heading into 2022 than he did during 2019.
