“NFL sent a memo to all clubs letting them know that the NFLPA informed the league that a person by the name of Ken Francis, who is not an NFLPA certified agent, may be contacting teams and attempting to persuade team personnel to enter into negotiations with Lamar Jackson,” Schefter said in a tweet.

“NFL memo said teams are prohibited from negotiating offer sheets or potential trades with individuals not certified by the NFLPA. Any team that does can be fined $54,409, which is the fine amount for 2023,” he added.

Now, social media users are sharing Ken Francis memes, some saying Lamar Jackson himself is pretending to be an agent.


Lamar Jackson said that no Ken Francis is trying to negotiate his contract.

“Stop Lying that man never tried to negotiate for me,” The quarterback wrote on Twitter.

“Any idea why the NFL Memo says that Ken Francis “may be contacting Clubs” instead of “is contacting Clubs”? Shouldn’t the NFL be able to call each team and ask before issuing a memo?” a Twitter user asked.
As per multiple reports, Ken Francis appears to be Lamar Jackson’s business partner for a home fitness product.
The Baltimore Ravens placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Jackson on March 7. Both parties are yet to agree on a long-term deal, which means the star QB could be traded. The Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots are reportedly amongst the teams that have expressed interest in Lamar.
