When Lamar Jackson arrives in Indianapolis for the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, he won’t be accompanied by an agent, instead he will have his mother, Felicia as his adviser.
According to Jake Lourim of the Louisville Courier Journal
Lamar Jackson’s mother, Felicia Jones, will advise Jackson for the time being, with the NFL scouting combine approaching this week.
A Louisville spokesman confirmed Monday that Jackson has not hired an agent other than Jones.
Jackson is one of 19 quarterbacks invited to the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis this week. The quarterbacks are scheduled for registration Wednesday, measurements and medical examinations Thursday, psychological testing and media interviews Friday and on-field workouts Saturday.
Jackson completed a career-best 59.1 percent of his passes and threw for 3,660 yards, 27 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 13 games for the Cardinals. He also ran for 1,601 yards and 18 touchdowns as well.
Lamar Jackson has split opinion during pre-draft evaluations, with some viewing him as a bonafide franchise quarterback while others wonder if his unquestionable athleticism will see him make the move to wide receiver down the road. His latest decision is sure to wide the divide even more.
