Ravens named as top-three most intriguing team in 2023 free agency by CBS Sports
The Baltimore Raves have plenty of decisions to make ahead of the opening of 2023 free agency, with a resolution for their situation with quarterback Lamar Jackson being at the forefront. The team is currently incurring a $32.4 million cap hit for Jackson after giving him the non-exclusive franchise tag, but a deal could be worked out in the future.
When ranking every NFL team in terms of intrigue heading into 2023 free agency, Jeff Kerr of CBS Sports put Baltimore all the way up at No. 2 on his list. When explaining why, Kerr talked about Jackson’s situation, asking questions such as how much will Jackson receive and what wide receivers will the team give him assuming he stays with the Ravens.
“The Ravens placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Lamar Jackson, allowing him to negotiate with any team come the start of the legal tampering period. The ongoing contract saga with Jackson will finally come to an end, as the Ravens can match an offer from any team and that will be Jackson’s contract — or they can pass and get two first-round picks in return…How much is Jackson going to receive? Is Jackson worth what he thinks he is — or will the Ravens be right on what they think he’s worth? If Baltimore keeps Jackson, what wide receivers will they give him going forward?”
