The Indianapolis Colts were not one of the teams who made it known that they would not be making a move for Lamar Jackson earlier this month and they’re said to be open to trading for the quarterback (sort of).
After it was announced that the Baltimore Ravens had placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on the QB, reports emerged naming multiple teams which were uninterested in negotiating for his services.
The Colts, who haven’t had a consistent starting signal-caller since Andrew Luck, revealed no such disinterest. And, according to ESPN’s Stephen Holder, they haven’t ruled out a move.
On the other hand, they haven’t taken any steps to put things in motion.

“Indianapolis did not rule out having discussions with Jackson, according to a team source,” Holder writes. “However, the club has not taken any substantive steps regarding Jackson and it is unclear whether it intends to do so. Team sources have expressed skepticism about pursuing Jackson.”
The Colts are considered a good fit for Jackson as owner Jim Irsay is keen on acquiring a franchise quarterback and is willing to break the bank for quality players, However, teams appear to be put off by the player’s demands, while the fact that he does not have an agent is making matters worse.
Should a team make an offer to the player that he’s willing to accept, the Ravens will have the option of either matching it or taking two first-round draft picks in a trade.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
