Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson took to Twitter this morning to publicize the fact that he’s formally requested a trade. Furthermore, he made the trade request all the way back on March 2, though that news has just found itself to sports headlines today.
With all that said, Browns fans can’t be more excited! As Cleveland tries to inch back toward the playoffs, watching a premiere QB leave the division would certainly help in that cause.
The drama between Lamar and the Ravens has been building for quite some time. If Jackson is to play football for a new team, it would absolutely help the Browns chances of winning the division, as the Ravens record without Lamar is not very good. Plus, their offense has repeatedly taken a huge hit with any other QB behind center.
