Ravens QB Lamar Jackson sues Amazon for sale of unlicensed merchandise

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson sues Amazon for sale of unlicensed merchandise

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson filed a lawsuit against Amazon.com on Wednesday, claiming the site facilitates the sale of unlicensed merchandise using his likeness.

According to the suit, Amazon allows and promotes the sale of items related to Jackson, including merchandise with slogans like "Not bad for a running back," "Lamarvelous" and "Action Jackson."

The lawsuit also states that "significant damage" has been done to Jackson's brand and own merchandise company, Era8Apparel.

Jackson, the 2019 NFL MVP, has asked that the court require Amazon count sales it generated from merchandise that features Jackson’s name, image or likeness and ban the website from offering such items without authorization. Jackson is also seeking compensation he feels Amazon inflicted upon him and his company.

New Ravens DE Calais Campbell has studied Ray Lewis throughout his life

New Ravens DE Calais Campbell has studied Ray Lewis throughout his life

If Ravens fans weren't already thrilled about their team acquiring defensive tackle Calais Campbell, his most recent interview should do the trick. 

The five-time Pro Bowler, who Baltimore landed for just a fifth-round pick, holds Ravens legend Ray Lewis in very high regard. 

"I study greatness," Campbell said on "The Lounge" Podcast. "I've always studied the greats like Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, Tiger Woods. But Ray Lewis has been the No. 1 guy I've studied throughout my life.

"Just as far as the way he speaks, his leadership and also his workout regimen," he said. "Je's just a guy that I've studied a lot and he's definitely my favorite."

Lewis was the face of the Ravens for the better part of 15 years, winning two Super Bowls, two Defensive Player of the Year awards and was named to seven All-Pro teams. Both Lewis and Campbell played at the University of Miami, so that would explain at least the origins of Campbell's appreciation for the Hall of Famer. 

As Campbell prepares for his first season in Baltimore, he'll be tasked with helping the new face of the Ravens, Lamar Jackson capture the franchise's first Super Bowl title since Lewis' final season in 2012.

Lamar Jackson's college teammate recounts the time he tackled the elusive QB

Lamar Jackson's college teammate recounts the time he tackled the elusive QB

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is hard enough to bring down during live action, but that task is impossible during practices when he's donning an alternate, no-contact jersey in practice. 

But during a live scrimmage when he was at Louisville, linebacker Jonathan Greenland claims he did what many NFL defenders struggled to do in 2019: Tackle the ever-elusive Jackson. 

"I actually tackled him one time. I think that was our freshman year when he was live for like one time," Greenland said at a podium appearance during the NFL combine. "He probably ain't gonna tell you that. But I always got the video and all that."

Greenland and Jackson were both members of Lousiville's 2015 recruiting class.

Greenland may have tackled him once, but on another play, Jackson showed he was on a different level than most others on the field. 

"He took it for like 60-70 yards," Greenland said. "I'm running down the field, but I'm not catching him, No. 1. But, two, it's just like 'this kid gonna be special.'"

The two former Cardinals played together from 2015 to the 2017 season, which was Jackson's Heisman Trophy year before the quarterback entered the draft. 

Meanwhile, Greenland returned to Louisville in 2018 but suffered a season-ending wrist injury on the first series of the season. He transferred to Florida for his final season of college. During his only season as a Gator, Greenland racked up 52 tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. 

That production alone is enough for teams to covet the pass rusher in the draft. But if you're an NFL team that Jackson terrorized in 2019, a proven ability to tackle the Ravens star quarterback is an added reason to select Greenland.
