Rumors indicate that the Baltimore Ravens are looking at all quarterback options in preparation for the ending to the Lamar Jackson saga. I guess this is no surprise as no one really knows how this situation with Jackson will end.
The Ravens were also trying to pursue Jacoby Brissett and Baker Mayfield to try and add to their quarterback room. It’s clear that Baltimore is preparing for the 2019 NFL MVP to not be on their team come 2023, but I guess it’s still possible that he is.
From the start, I don’t think the Ravens have handled this very well. They’ve tried to get a long-term deal done with Jackson for what feels like years now, and other teams across the NFL have usually been able to sign their franchise quarterbacks to long-term deals, so what’s the issue with Baltimore?
Jackson apparently requested a trade from the Ravens on March 2nd, so that’s also not insignificant.
The relationship between the two parties seems irreparable at this point, and the Ravens apparently looking at contingency plans at QB has to rub Jackson the wrong way.
Now, the next question and the burning question that still remains is where will Lamar Jackson land? Will he agree to an offer sheet with a team? Will a team give him the contract that he wants?
He’s an elite talent at the position and is already the best dual-threat QB to have ever played the game, so there’s going to be a team other than Baltimore to offer him a deal, right?
If my favorite NFL team needed a quarterback, I would be pounding the table for them to go out and to do what it took to land Lamar Jackson. QBs like him are truly generational talents.
