In the world of the NFL, one constant remains – change. Just when we thought Lamar Jackson’s $260 million deal was the pinnacle, the NFL’s financial landscape shifted again. The recent news of Justin Herbert becoming the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL has left fans shocked.

While Jackson’s bromance with offensive weapon Mark Andrews took center stage during their pre-season on Tuesday, the news of Herbert’s massive contract came as a surprise. From the on-field chemistry between Jackson and Andrews to the meteoric rise of Justin Herbert as the newest face of lucrative quarterback contracts, the league’s power dynamics continue to evolve.

The TE Andrews stands tall, catching passes from none other than Lamar Jackson, the star QB who recently inked a record-breaking contract worth $260 million with the Ravens. The bond between these two football stars runs deep, and their connection goes far beyond the field.

It’s a lot of stress and relief,” says Andrews, “Obviously, I’ve been with Lamar since Day 1, and there was a lot of uncertainty.“. Andrews was drafted two rounds after Jackson in 2018, but their fates have been intertwined ever since.

As Andrews affectionately puts it, “That’s my guy. I’m happy he’s here for good. That’s my quarterback.”

Lamar Jackson recently shared an image on his Instagram story featuring a quote from Mark Andrews. The quote was “We do have unfinished business, and it’s time to roll”.

The Baltimore Ravens’ pre-season kicked off with a burst of enthusiasm as the franchise welcomed its veteran players. The Ravens’ tight end believes that this year’s roster is destined to go farther than they have in years past. He sees a hunger and talent that stretches across both sides of the ball.

The Baltimore Ravens are planning to be a dominant force with a revamped offense, including additions like Odell Beckham Jr and Zay Flowers. Under new offensive coordinator Todd Monken, Lamar Jackson is also set to elevate the passing game.

As the season approaches, the Ravens’ “unfinished business” remains a mystery, but fans hope it leads to a Super Bowl victory. In the last few years, Andrews’ sure-handed catches and dynamic playmaking ability established him as Jackson’s go-to target.

However, the burning question is: Can they do it? Can Andrews and Jackson lead the team to a Super Bowl Win? This question certainly overshadowed the news that LA Chargers’ QB is all set to surpass Jackson’s eye-popping five-year contract extension.
