Lamar Jackson tweets out that he should be getting paid more money than Kyler Murray.

Now that Kyler Murray just got the bag from the Arizona Cardinals, Lamar Jackson believes he should be making more coin than him from the Baltimore Ravens.

Jake Paul tweeted out on Friday afternoon that Jackson deserves more money than what Murray got paid. Jackson would quote tweet Paul by essentially agreeing with him.

Though both quarterbacks are members of the Heisman Trophy fraternity, Jackson has one more year’s worth of NFL experience, one more league MVP and most importantly, one more playoff win over Murray, the guy who just got paid.

Jackson may need his money, but will he get it before the regular season arrives for Baltimore?

Lamar Jackson agrees that he deserves way more money than Kyler Murray

Does Jackson deserve more money than Murray? Absolutely, but there is a reason why a quarterback drafted a year after him has gotten the bag before him. Jackson is self-represented, while Murray is represented by Erik Burkhardt of Roc Nation Sports. Though this may help Jackson earn more money than Murray, this is why the Cardinals quarterback got his payday ahead of him.

Jackson is going into his fifth-year option season out of Louisville. Baltimore wisely traded up for the last pick in the 2018 NFL Draft to select the dual-threat playmaker. It became very apparent during his rookie year he was the guy over the incumbent Joe Flacco. While John Harbaugh won a Super Bowl with Flacco as his quarterback, he would be long out of Baltimore if not for Jackson…

Ultimately, anything short of Jackson putting pen to paper this summer in Baltimore on a long-term extension would be earth-shattering. He would be playing the most dangerous game by actually playing out his fifth-year option season in a contract year. Jackson is an exhilarating player, but one play could change the trajectory of his career. He needs to get the bag yesterday.

Perhaps Jackson’s quote tweet of Paul signifies that he is serious about inking a long-term deal?
