Sports Writing, March 29 (EFE).- The Baltimore Ravens signed a three-year contract extension with their coach, John Harbaugh, on Tuesday, and now they will focus on renewing the agreement with their quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Harbaugh has a regular-season record of 137 wins and 88 losses in his coaching career, which began with the Ravens in 2008.
It took the 59-year-old quarterback five seasons to lead Baltimore to a Vince Lombardi Trophy by beating the 49ers, led by his brother Jim, in Super Bowl XLVII.
Since 2013, his Ravens have only recorded two losing seasons, 2015 and 2021.
Once the permanence of his coach was assured until 2025, the owner of the Baltimore Ravens, Steve Bisciotti, explained that there is no rush to sign the renewal of Jackson, although he trusted that it will be achieved.
“Unless Lamar has a change of heart, calls and says I’m ready, we’re going to go slowly,” Bisciotti said Tuesday during the NFL’s annual meeting.
Although the manager also warned that the general manager of the Ravens, Eric DeCosta, will not rush the negotiation.
“Eric can’t keep calling him and saying, ‘Hey Lamar, you really need to get in here and do it,'” he stressed.
Lamar Jackson is 25 years old and came to Baltimore selected in the first round of the 2018 Draft. In four seasons with the team, he has accumulated 9,967 passing yards, 84 touchdowns and 31 interceptions.
In other relevant free agency moves on Tuesday, quarterback Andy Dalton left the Chicago Bears and signed a one-year, $6 million deal with the New Orleans Saints.
The 34-year-old veteran quarterback will back up Jameis Winston, who suffered a torn ACL, and Saints coach Dennis Allen wants someone with experience to back Winston up.
Defensive safety Jabrill Peppers signed with the New England Patriots.
The 26-year-old formerly of the New York Giants is recovering from a torn ACL that limited him to playing just six games in the 2021 season, his third with New York.
Peppers, who was selected in the first round of the Cleveland Browns in 2017, will continue his rehabilitation under the supervision of the Patriots.
