Report: Lamar Jackson hasn’t hired an agent, will be represented by his mother


In the midst of ongoing debate about his professional position, it appears Lamar Jackson is going against the grain in terms of representation.

Even after an outstanding three seasons at Louisville, some gurus are still questioning whether the former Heisman winner is an NFL quarterback.

Now Jackson is taking an unorthodox stance leading up to April’s NFL draft, as he’s bypassing hiring an agent and instead will be represented by his mother Felica Jones, according to Sporting News reporter Eric Galko.

I'll just leave this here: Per the NFL official SRA list, #Louisville QB Lamar Jackson does not have an NFL agent representing him.

No matter what your thoughts on agents are, that's notable. And potentially concerning.

For the record, this is Lamar Jackson’s choice. His mother is aiding in his NFL Draft preparation.

NFL teams do care about who a player signs with and how they handle the process.

This is definitely far from the norm and the cynics are bound to question this.

Yet when you think of it from Jackson’s point of view, there’s no one he probably trusts more than his mother.

She might not have the credentials of any of those agents but he definitely has faith she’ll have his back and look out for his best interests.

As Jackson aims to prove the naysayers wrong, having family in his corner could be provide a positive push.
