  A key Biden judicial nominee is poised for confirmation. Here's why that may matter for the Supreme Court. Senate Republicans are taking a cautious approach to President Biden's judicial nominees, even though one of them may be bound for the Supreme Court.After all, Jackson is also a top contender to be Biden's first Supreme Court nominee.

For the time being, Lamar Jackson is working as his own agent. Although the former MVP did not confirm that will remain the case during extension talks, he currently stands to play the lead role in his negotiations. The fourth-year Ravens passer addressed his status Wednesday.

John Harbaugh said earlier this offseason a Jackson extension would commence either this year or next. Because the Ravens picked up Jackson’s fifth-year option, he is under contract through 2022. His timetable still appears fluid.

“I’m not really worried about if it gets done this year or next year,” Jackson said, via the Ravens' Twitter account. “We’re going to see. We don’t know yet.”

Jackson’s rookie deal calls for a $1.77M base salary this season. The 24-year-old superstar confirmed he and GM Eric DeCosta began to discuss his second contract earlier this year. Dak Prescott‘s four-year, $160M extension figures to be a key benchmark in Jackson’s talks, just as Deshaun Watson‘s four-year, $156M pact factored into Prescott’s down-to-the-wire negotiations. Patrick Mahomes‘ $45M-AAV deal — a 10-year re-up — continues to look like an outlier.

Prescott opted to maximize his value, not agreeing to his extension until the franchise-tag deadline ahead of his sixth season. The rest of the recent QB draftees to sign lucrative extensions — Mahomes, Watson, Carson Wentz, Jared Goff — opted to lock in big money earlier. Each agreed to deals ahead of their fourth seasons. Jackson and Josh Allen are on the same timetable; Baker Mayfield factors into this picture as well, but the Browns are not believed to have talked an extension yet. Each 2018 first-rounder has become extension-eligible at an interesting time for the quarterback position.

(Reuters) - For eight years, Derenda Hancock has ushered women from their cars to the doors of Mississippi's only abortion clinic, donning a rainbow vest as she shields them from protesters waving religious pamphlets and shouting “turn back!" through bullhorns.

This offseason has brought tremendous QB movement. Five 2020 starters have been traded thus far this year; Watson and Aaron Rodgers are eager to join the carousel. Jackson, however, is not presently interested in exploring his options beyond Maryland.

“I would love to be here forever,” Jackson said. “I love Baltimore. I love the whole organization. I love everybody in the building. Hopefully, we’ll be making something happen pretty soon whenever.”
