If the Baltimore Ravens can’t come to a long-term extension deal with Lamar Jackson this season, they are likely to hit him with the non-exclusive franchise tag.
The move would allow potential teams to hold talks with Jackson and sign him to an offer sheet. If the Ravens don’t match, the former league MVP could be headed to a new team in 2023 in exchange for two first-round draft picks.
