Lamar Jackson’s social media activities have always been under the microscope. But given the situation with his contract with the Baltimore Ravens, people want to know why he liked a recent tweet hinting at a desire to join the Miami Dolphins.
The 2019 NFL MVP recently liked a tweet showing him wearing a Dolphins T-shirt. People quickly took it as a sign that he wanted to leave Baltimore, even if he didn’t want to go specifically to the Dolphins.
But in a recent appearance on the GoJo Show, Jackson said it was a joke. He explained that the tweet was liked to make fun of fans who think he wants to leave Baltimore.
“(Baltimore) is a great organization. It’s a friendly organization and I like being here. I’ve already tweeted that this is where I want to be,” Jackson said. “So now I see things like, ‘Oh, he wants to leave.’ And I’m like, “Yes, because I see that you all continue in the same spirit…” Well, I’m going to reproduce it, and I liked something. It’s just me taking my pictures on social media because they like doing it, I think.”
Ravens fans appreciated the good joke, while other fans believe that what he did can now be blown out of recognition:
The Ravens and Lamar Jackson are currently deadlocked in contract extension negotiations. There were rumors that Jackson would play out the final year of his contract before becoming a free agent next offseason.
Regardless of whether it’s true or not, Jackson has no problem having a laugh.
