The Miami Dolphins were thought to be a possible landing spot for Lamar Jackson but, now that the quarterback is available for trading, they’re reported to be among five NFL teams who aren’t in the market for the quarterback.
The Baltimore Ravens placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Jackson this Tuesday as the parties failed to come to an agreement over an extension. Teams are now allowed to negotiate with the quarterback but will be required to have two first-round picks go the other way if the Ravens do not want to match whatever offer sheet Jackson signs.
According to ESPN’s Jeff Darlington, the Dolphins won’t be pursuing Jackson or any other starting quarterback this offseason and are sticking with Tua Tagovailoa as their main man in spite of the concerns over his health.

Head coach Mike McDaniels also thinks Tua is the perfect fit for his system, per Darlington.
The Atlanta Falcons, who have $66.4 million in cap space and were the team most heavily-linked to Jackson in recent weeks, are also said to be among organizations not interested in pursuing the Ravens QB. That is according to Dianna Russini of ESPN.
Other uninterested teams include the Washington Commanders, with Sam Howell named the team’s starting QB by head coach Ron Rivera, per Kimberly A. Martin, also of ESPN. The Athletic’s Joe Person is also reporting that the Carolina Panthers aren’t expected to pursue Jackson either.
The Las Vegas Raiders were initially ruled out of the race for the former MVP but Russini says they are still considering all QB options at the moment.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
