The (very) long process has finally come to an end. Lamar Jackson signed his contract extension with the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday afternoon.

Is Trey Lance on the move?
The San Francisco 49ers have been taking calls from teams asking about QB Trey Lance. While that's as far as the process goes, teams calling about his availability before the draft is significant. Brock Purdy is likely to be the starter whenever he is fully recovered from his elbow injury that he sustained in the NFC Championship Game. The Niners also have QB Sam Darnold on the roster.
Two intriguing landing spots for Lance could be the Tennessee Titans and Houston Texans, as he's familiar with Titans GM Ran Carthon and Titans head coach DeMeco Ryans.
A report states the Minnesota Vikings were one of the teams to speak to Lance at this year's scouting combine. There were also rumors swirling around that time about a potential Kirk Cousins trade, so this may be something to keep an eye on.

Aaron Rodgers has a wish list now
If Aaron Rodgers is going to play for the New York Jets, he wants to do it his own way, and with some of his friends. Rodgers has given the Jets a 'Wish List' of players he wants the team to target and/or sign, because of course he has. The list includes former teammates Allen Lazard, Marcedes Lewis, best friend Randall Cobb, and Odell Beckham Jr.
One of them is already checked off the list - Lazard signed a four-year, $44 million contract with New York on Tuesday. The rest? Unsure, although the Jets did attend an open workout that OBJ held in Arizona late last week.
The Jets also have Offensive Rookie of the Year Garrett Wilson, Elijah Moore, Corey Davis, and Denzel Mims in their wide receiver room. Not bad. So why does Rodgers want all these older guys in the room, unless he's on a complete power trip? He's already holding two teams hostage during the peak of free agency - the Jets and the team that is hoping to trade him, the Green Bay Packers. Neither can do much until there's a resolution.
Hopefully one is coming soon, as Rodgers is scheduled to appear on his friend, Pat McAfee's show on Wednesday at 1pm.

Matt Ryan benched, again
Merry Christmas to me!
The Indianapolis Colts are benching quarterback Matt Ryan - yes, again - for Nick Foles. Foles will be their third quarterback to start this season. Definitely not what they had planned.
The first time Ryan was benched, rookie Sam Ehlinger took over, and head coach Frank Reich was later fired. Then, the Colts hired Jeff Saturday for some reason, went back to Ryan, and blew the biggest lead in NFL history.
Foles, their last hope, is a former Super Bowl MVP and has only played two snaps this season - the final snaps of a 24-0 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Foles said on Wednesday that he had no frustration towards the Colts for not turning to him earlier in the season.
The Colts take on Justin Herbert, an actual good QB, and the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football.

Week Eight Highlights
More QB News:
The Los Angeles Rams kick off the 2022 NFL season on Thursday, but one of its members who won a ring with the team will be absent. Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is a free agent, as he's been nursing a knee injury this offseason. However, reports surfaced on Monday that the Rams have kept Beckham's locker (with the nameplate - very important) intact, perhaps keeping him in mind when he's healthy and ready to return.
Adding fuel to the fire, Beckham tweeted on Tuesday that he would be watching the game very closely, which led to questions of whether his decision to sign was between the Rams and their opponent, the Buffalo Bills.
One thing to note: The Rams and Buffalo are two teams linked to landing the star WR this off-season. While a resolution might not come until later in the season due to his recovery, Beckham could certainly have to decide between these two teams, which may not be a bad problem to have.
