We are almost a week into NFL free agency and while there have been plenty of moves made around the league, there is one player who has had surprisingly little going on.
There still hasn’t appeared to be much going on for Lamar Jackson since the Baltimore Ravens decided to give him the non-exclusive franchise tag.
There have been plenty reports about the teams that aren’t interested, but we’ve yet to hear of a team truly showing interest or about Jackson continuing to negotiate with the Ravens for a long-term deal.
Now it looks like somebody may be trying to create some interest for Jackson.
According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, there has been a representative who is not certified by the NFLPA that has contacted multiple teams on Jackson’s behalf.

Per multiple sources, a representative for Jackson has contacted more than one team in an effort to spark negotiations aimed at a possible offer sheet. The representative is not certified by the NFL Players Association.
Florio is also reporting that one of his sources told him the representative is saying that Jackson isn’t looking for a contract that is fully-guaranteed.
Whoever this representative is, they can’t negotiate a deal for Jackson, but it looks like they are trying to find some team that might have interest in the quarterback.
At some point you would expect teams to begin to become interested, but the list of options has been getting shorter throughout the offseason.
The Panthers and Raiders have already made moves to address the position. The Jets are expected to get Aaron Rodgers.
Maybe this representative can convince the Colts to actually pursue Jackson after recent rumors they could be interested.
Otherwise, there won’t be many teams left as option for Lamar Jackson.
