    Weird how some don’t know the difference between 2022 and 2023
    How is it possible to have the best owner, best front office, best gm, best HC, good/great drafts every year and good FA acquisitions every year, but only have 3 playoff wins in 14 years?

    Harbaugh still talks like something can get done but maybe this is wishful thinking.
    I lost a bet about Najee gaining 1300 yards.

    Wasn’t Jackson available during FA?

OTOH, why would a team negotiate a trade that gives up more than 2-1st round picks when they could make him an offer and see if the Ravens match or not. It will be interesting to see what the league thinks about his ability to take a team into the playoffs and possibly a Super Bowl.

    I am also beginning to come around to Steel Maniac's take on Lamar as a player. This year will be interesting.

    I think the reason for a team to do this would be because they actually want him at a reasonable contract.

    I think Baltimore's hope is that another team makes Lamar a reasonable offer and then Baltimore matches. Then they get the player on a reasonable deal and the other team does the hard work of negotiating.

    So to not have Baltimore match, the other team could (1) make an unreasonably high offer and live with the overpayment or (2) offer enough compensation to BAL that makes it too good to give up.

    I'm not sure either happens.

    Maybe Lamar is on the road to trying to play out the tag and be one of the better QBs to hit UFA in their prime.

    Also, his current form shows he's not the 2019 MVP player he wants to be paid as. Teams pay for who you are and what they think you can be. He's been trending down since 2020.
    If I'm in Lamar's camp, I keep pointing at Watson and saying "I've had more success than he has AND I've never been described by the commissioner as a sexual predator".

    He was available for an offer that the Raven’s could match as an unrestricted FA.

    Now that he made it known publicly I think teams will make a play for him and also try to get him for the low low since they know he wants out.

    Pretty sure they have been saying it already. Owners do not want to make fully guaranteed contracts the norm.

    Yes, that was my point.
    I didn’t see teams falling all over him offering him a contract (for the ravens to potentially match).
    Based on the Lamar fans here, it seems like it should have happened.

    I doubt that's been working for him. Betting on 31 other owners being as dumb as 1 is fairly long odds. Maybe he can find another moron in the crowd, but so far it doesn't appear that way. I still think he needs an agent in a very bad way.

    Has he really had more success?
    I’d be more concerned that Jackson has been injured (or faked injury) the past couple seasons added to his declining stats.
