On Monday, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson made a surprising announcement on Twitter that he had requested a trade from the team on March 2. The news came as a shock to many fans who had been expecting the former NFL MVP to remain with the team for years to come.
The announcement came after weeks of speculation about Jackson's future with the team. In recent weeks, reports had surfaced that the Ravens were looking into trading Jackson, but it was unclear whether he would be willing to leave Baltimore. Now, it appears that he has decided to move on and explore other opportunities.
Jackson has been one of the most successful quarterbacks in the league since joining the Ravens in 2018. He was named NFL MVP in 2019 and has led the team to two consecutive playoff appearances. However, his relationship with head coach John Harbaugh has reportedly been strained in recent months, leading some to speculate that this could have played a role in his decision to request a trade.
It remains unclear where Jackson will end up if and when he is traded by the Ravens. Some teams rumored to be interested include the Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, San Francisco 49ers, and Seattle Seahawks. Wherever he ends up, it's sure to be an exciting new chapter for one of the best quarterbacks in football today.
