Miami Dolphins safety DeShon Elliott posted, then deleted, a tweet that called for the team to acquire Baltimore Ravens’ star quarterback Lamar Jackson.
On Monday, Jackson announced in a Twitter thread that he requested a trade from the Ravens back on Mar. 2. The AFC North club placed the franchise tag on the 2019 league MVP earlier this month, preventing him from potentially entering the free agent market.
Responding to the news, Elliott used tweeted,” #CometotheDolphins. The tweet may have been deleted, but Dov Kleiman was able to capture and share a screenshot of it before the veteran safety took it down:
As Kleiman noted, the Dolphins have already picked up the fifth-year option on Tagovailoa’s rookie deal. Throw in the massive price it would take to acquire Jackson, and it’s obviously hard to imagine Miami moving on from the Alabama product now.

Tagovailoa suffered three head-related injuries in 2022, and he missed four regular season games plus the team’s Wild Card Round loss to to the Buffalo Bills. Despite the injuries, he put together his best season yet by completing 64.8 percent of pass attempts for 3,548 yards and 25 touchdowns against only eight interceptions.
The No. 5 pick of the 2020 NFL Draft was instrumental in helping the Dolphins to their first playoff berth in six years. As fun as it is to envision the scenario, the Dolphins just don’t seem like a realistic landing spot for Jackson at this time.
If a team signs Jackson to an offer sheet, Baltimore would have five days to match. If they decide against matching it, Baltimore would receive two first-round picks as compensation.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
