The Miami Dolphins’ star wide receiver Tyreek Hill is known to be on top of things. Now the speedster is demanding more money. But not for himself or any of his fellow teammates, his demand is for the superstar quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Hill and the Baltimore Ravens‘ QB are identically placed in terms of their net worth. But there are a couple of glaring differences between the two. And Hill has embarked on a quest to correct one of those!

On the ‘Punch Line Podcast’, Hill made an appearance and utilized his time calling out the lack of endorsement deals that Jackson earns. “Lamar Jackson deserves more than he’s got right now!”, stated the Super Bowl winner. However, he substantiated his line of argument further.

It will be tough considering Jackson’s recent contract extension with the Ravens worth $260 million for five years. This new contract has made the 2X MVP quarterback the fourth highest-paid player in the entire league. Still, Cheetah considers Jackson underpaid for one reason.

“As far as brand deals and stuff,” said Hill, claiming he doesn’t see him on billboards. The hosts and Hill then discussed a few deals that Jackson can make, including Starbucks and a cleats line. However, there is one issue that could be holding him down in terms of endorsements.

Currently, Jackson is the face of merely three brands. Oakley Inc., Play Action Soul Food and More, and NFL Pro Era. Compared to Hill’s endorsements of brands like Adidas, Grip Boost Inc., Hublot, etc. It is clear why Celebrity Net Worth places both athletes on $40 million as their net worth. Despite a massive gap in their contracts!

The caliber of brands lacking in Jackson’s portfolio could be due to the lack of an agent in his team. Famously, Jackson’s mother acts as the manager for the QB, but he does not employ any agents. These agents are usually the ones who bring lucrative deals and endorsements to the player.
