What will happen with Lamar?


Devin Black, Staff Reporter

The Ravens applied the non-exclusive franchise tag on Lamar Jackson on March 7 making his future with the organization uncertain.

The non-exclusive franchise tag is a cost of $32.4 million for the 2023 season and is unlike other franchise tags. It allowed Jackson to negotiate with other teams to see if he could get a better deal than what the Baltimore Ravens offered him.

Nineteen days later, Jackson requested a trade from the Ravens’ organization, which means that he could reach out to other¬†teams and try to work out a deal to be traded.

Jackson tried to work out a deal with other teams, but was ultimately unsuccessful because he does not have an agent to help him negotiate what he wants his contract to include. 

There are a few likely teams that Jackson could end up with if he does not continue with the Ravens: Colts, Patriots, Titans, Buccaneers, Commanders, Falcons, Lions, Vikings, Texans, and Jets.

Currently, the Ravens will continue to negotiate with Jackson and will try to keep him as their quarterback.

My hope is that Jackson will continue to stay the Baltimore Ravens quarterback and will go on to win a Superbowl.
