It appears the relationship between the Baltimore Ravens and Lamar Jackson has gone haywire.
The Baltimore Ravens were reportedly not committed to a long-term future with star quarterback Lamar Jackson, according to ESPN’s NFL insider Jeremy Fowler. We now know why they felt that way because the former league MVP requested a trade earlier in March, which he exposed on Monday during a letter to his fans.
This may get teams to start offering him deals, or at least calling the Ravens to see what they want for the former MVP. It’s been weeks since the team placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Jackson, and yet not a single team has come in with an offer sheet.
