OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore general manager Eric DeCosta says the Ravens and Lamar Jackson still haven’t agreed on a contract extension and will keep working on it after the season.

Jackson had said Friday was his deadline for a new deal, and he’d be pausing talks after that with the season about to start.

Jackson is entering his fifth-year option season. The Ravens open Sunday on the road against the New York Jets.

Baltimore can use the franchise tag to keep Jackson after this season, if need be.
