The Lamar Jackson saga has recently taken an unforeseen turn during the tumultuous 2023 NFL offseason.
After the Baltimore Ravens placed the franchise tag on Jackson, many believed that he was unhappy with the organization.
However, this was initially just rumors, until Jackson recently commented on the situation.
Jackson has now publicly stated that he requested a trade and that he wants to leave the team.
The team has maintained that their plan is to move forward with him at the helm, even though he is unhappy.
After this news broke, Adam Schefter announced potential destinations for Jackson.

Schefter cites that the Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Commanders make sense for Jackson.
However, he does believe that the Commanders are an unlikely option, considering the fact that the team might be undergoing a sale.
Their owner has been shrouded with controversy, and Jackson might not want to dive into a team that is undergoing organizational turmoil.
The Colts are another potential team, although, they currently have the No. 4 overall pick.
If the Carolina Panthers and Houston Texans both draft quarterbacks ahead of them, the Colts could be put in a difficult position.
With a strong offensive line and a new coaching regime, the Colts are a destination that could also make sense for Jackson.
Ultimately, there are several moving pieces with this situation, and it could take some time for this situation to be resolved.
