Earlier this month, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence signed a new contract to stay with the team for the foreseeable future. And it sounds like he’s quite pleased with the direction of the team this year and beyond.

During a recent press conference, Trevor Lawrence made it clear that he thinks this is the most talented Jacksonville Jaguars team that he has played on since he was selected with the No. 1 overall pick ahead of the 2021 NFL season.

“I think this is definitely the best team that we’ve had here in my eyes, just at this point in the year from what I’ve seen. I feel very confident in that,” Lawrence said according to Pro Football Talk.

Lawrence obviously got a massive pay raise this offseason which could add a little bit more pressure for him to perform. But he is trying not to think of it that way.

“I’m not going to add any pressure to myself just based on getting this contract,” Lawrence told reporters Thursday, according to Pro Football Talk. “It doesn’t really change what I expect of myself and what the team expects of me. Whether this got done or not, [Jaguars owner] Mr. [Shad] Khan, [General Manager] Trent [Baalke], [coach] Doug [Pederson], everyone, all the coaches expect me to play well and, like I said, to bring a championship here eventually. . . . Now that it’s done, it doesn’t really change that, but like I said, maybe from the outside it will a bit, but not for me.”

Obviously, Lawrence is excited to stay in Jacksonville and thinks that the future is bright for the team. We’ll have to see how that all plays out for him and the team.
