Lamar Jackson Negotiation Day is HERE! | Teams can negotiate with Lamar Jackson today at 4

Lamar Jackson has been waiting for this day. Today at 4pm, Lamar Jackson can officially talk to teams to negotiate a deal after the Ravens signed him to the Franchise Tag, but they gave him the non-exclusive tag which could come back to bite them today.

All it would take is one team to come in and make an offer that the Ravens cannot and will not match. So starting today at 4pm, the former Louisville gunslinger can negotiate with teams on a contract offer that the Ravens would have seven days to match.

If the Ravens do not match however the team would have to send 2 first round picks to the Ravens.

The non-exclusive tag is nearly $13 million less than the exclusive designation, coming in at $32.4 million. If Lamar does not sign the tag, he would only be screwing himself, because if the player rejects the offer, they are unable to sign with another NFL team for that entire season.

Here is the catch though, right now there are several teams that are still freeing up cap space. One of those teams is the Indianapolis Colts. Not many people are talking about them right now, but let’s face it they would be a very interesting team for Lamar to land on. The Colts will release Matt Ryan and traded Stephon Gilmore yesterday which freed up over 30 million dollars. Another couple teams that seem to make sense are the Atlanta Falcons who still have a ton of cash, and the Washington Commanders who could be ready to sell their franchise.

I am not sure if someone will in fact make an offer for the star quarterback, but at this point, I hope someone does. I do not like when people bully someone. I feel the Ravens are bullying Lamar right now and I hope he can find a way to come out of this on top.
