Ravens place non-exclusive franchise tag on QB Lamar Jackson

Try as they did for more than two years, the Baltimore Ravens were unable to come to terms with Lamar Jackson on a long-term deal.

The AFC North team on Tuesday, an hour before the actual deadline, placed franchise-tagged their QB, making it a non-exclusive tag.

Ravens sent notice to the NFLPA that they placed the $32.41 million non-exclusive franchise tag on QB Lamar Jackson. He now is allowed to negotiate with other teams, but Ravens have right to match any offer sheet he signs or take two first-round picks in return for him.
