The Baltimore Ravens have used the franchise tag on quarterback Lamar Jackson, ensuring that he will remain with the team for at least one more season. However, some fans and analysts are wondering why other teams have been silent on a potential trade for the star player.
According to Yahoo Sports, Jackson has not received any offers from other teams despite his impressive career statistics and young age. This has raised questions about why other teams are not actively pursuing him, especially considering the impact he could have on any franchise.
Sports Illustrated reported that the Washington Commanders were previously in talks with the Ravens about a potential trade for Jackson, but those talks fell through for unclear reasons. Panthers fans are now imploring assistant coach Nikki Bozeman to recruit Jackson to Carolina, but it is unclear if the team is interested in pursuing a trade.
ESPN has ranked several NFL teams as potential fits for Jackson in the event of a trade. Among the top contenders are the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos.
For now, Jackson remains with the Ravens and will likely continue to dominate the football field for years to come. Fans will have to wait and see if any other teams make a move to acquire the star quarterback in the future.
