The NFL free agency period slowing down with smaller deals still trickling in, as most of the attention is now on the upcoming NFL Draft.

Even so, many still have their eyes on Lamar Jackson, as his contract situation is one of the most interesting scenarios in the league right now.

Well, from the sounds of it, there may finally be some interest in the superstar quarterback.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings are rumored to be interested in Lamar Jackson.

“I asked some executives around the league what teams would make sense. They mention Tennessee, who just cleared some cap space. They have a new GM Ran Carthon, who’s working on the roster. They could use a running quarterback; they have experience with that in the past. And even a wild card like Minnesota. Kirk Cousins has one year left on his contract if they want to reestablish their identity there.”

It’s important to note, that Fowler confirms that no teams have offered Lamar Jackson a contract yet. Even so, it sounds like both the Titans and Vikings might be interested in the superstar quarterback.

Although multiple teams claimed they have no interest in Lamar Jackson. These of course are rumors for now, but there should still be several organizations showing interest.

We’re still over a month away from the NFL Draft. With that said, we should have a better understanding of what teams are looking to add by that time.

Keep an eye on Lamar Jackson, as these rumors are going to pick up steam as the draft nears.
