Former NFL MVP Lamar Jackson has requested a trade from the Baltimore Ravens. The 26-year-old quarterback made the announcement on social media, stating that he had asked the Ravens for a trade on March 2nd. However, the team has not shown any interest in meeting his value.
Jackson, who won the NFL’s Most Valuable Player award in 2019, expressed his love for the game of football and his desire to help a team win the Super Bowl. He has been with the Ravens for the past four seasons, but has failed to reach the championship game.
Baltimore, on the other hand, applied the non-exclusive franchise tag on Jackson on March 7th after failing to agree on a long-term contract. The tag allows Jackson to negotiate with other franchises, but the Ravens will have five days to match any offer sheet he signs, or receive two first-round picks as compensation.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, when asked about Jackson’s message, stated that he was not aware of it. However, he expressed his excitement about Lamar being the team’s quarterback and his confidence in building the offense around him.
The quarterback, who represents himself without an agent, has been in talks with the team’s general manager Eric DeCosta. DeCosta expressed his hope that the two sides could agree on a long-term deal that would be fair to both parties.
The situation with Lamar Jackson’s trade request from the Baltimore Ravens is ongoing, with both sides hoping to come to a resolution. Jackson has expressed his desire to win a Super Bowl and believes that a change of team may be necessary to achieve that goal. The Ravens, on the other hand, have applied the non-exclusive franchise tag on him, indicating their willingness to keep him on the team. The outcome of the negotiations between Jackson and the Ravens remains to be seen.
