Lamar Jackson Trade Rumors: Will the Indianapolis Colts make a run for Lamar Jackson?
Could the 2019 MVP land on the Indianapolis Colts? The star quarterback was given the Non-Exclusive Franchise Tag, and right now one of the only teams that could truly make a run at the Ravens quarterback is the Colts.
The Colts have cash after releasing Matt Ryan and trading Stephon Gilmore, so it makes you wonder would the Colts even have interest.
Well yesterday, ESPN’s Stephen Holder reported the Colts have not ruled out a pursuit of Lamar Jackson.
According to the report, “team sources have expressed skepticism” about an attempt to woo Jackson.
Jackson has wanted a fully-guaranteed contract. There are recent indications that maybe he doesn’t want every dollar to be fully-guaranteed at signing.
According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio though, a person that is not certified by the NFLPA has been contacting NFL teams on behalf of Jackson, and the report is Lamar Jackson no longer wants to play for the Baltimore Ravens.
According to the report, the person has said that Jackson does not want a fully-guaranteed contract.
The Ravens have the right to match any offer that is made, but the Colts have quite a bit of money. They could make a nice little run at Lamar. If he is in fact traded, it would be a salary cap guru against a salary cap guru.
Do you think the Colts should make a run at Lamar? I think it makes a ton of sense. He is still very young, you have a good core in Alec Pierce, Michael Pittman, and my dog Andrew Ogletree to go along with thee best running back in the NFL in Jonathan Taylor.
