The NFL offseason has been interesting for the Baltimore Ravens.
They have gone through most of 2022 without having a new contract for their star quarterback, Lamar Jackson.
While some people say it’s on the Ravens that Jackson doesn’t have a new deal, others point the finger at the young quarterback.
However, it doesn’t matter who is to blame for the lack of a new deal for him.
The main thing is Baltimore would be foolish not to commit to their quarterback for a long-term deal.
But will that happen with some of the of offseason moves the team made .
Jackson Wasn’t Happy With Ravens Trading His Top Receiver On Draft Night
One thing that really upset the young quarterback in Baltimore was when his team made a draft day trade, sending Hollywood Brown to Arizona.

While the move was at the request of Brown, the MVP quarterback still didn’t enjoy losing his receiver.
Brown didn’t feel the Ravens offense fit his skill set.
Also, Brown’s former college teammate, Kyler Murray, is the quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals.
However, now that Jackson is without his receiver, he’ll need to start fresh with the new group of receivers in Baltimore.
But that isn’t the only problem that’s going on in Baltimore that should have people concerned.
There is a history of players leaving the Baltimore offense, and it might affect any potential contract talks.
Players Aren’t Happy With How Baltimore Runs Their Offense
But is Jackson the one to blame with those players’ unhappiness with Baltimore?
He actually isn’t to blame for these players leaving Baltimore.
The blame falls on offensive coordinator Greg Roman.
Former Ravens receiver Willie Snead came out and defended Jackson, while exposing Roman and how he pushes players away.

With Snead coming out about the lack of creativity on offense, it might spell trouble for Roman.
It also means that Jackson could hold out because the Ravens have a coordinator who’s sabotaging him.
If Roman is the problem in Baltimore, what are the Ravens willing to do with him?
The Ravens Must Get Rid Of Roman To Keep Jackson
The Ravens need to choose between Jackson and Roman.
With players leaving Baltimore because of him, Jackson could be the next to go if Baltimore keeps him around.
The young quarterback has proven to Baltimore that he’s an MVP quarterback.
However, it seems they aren’t using him like they should.
Receivers want more targets from their quarterback.
But the game plan from Roman isn’t giving them those targets that they desire.
If the team sticks with Roman, who’s been with the team since 2017, they might lose their quarterback.
However, if they fire him, they might save any contract talks between them and Jackson.
Taking Jackson over Roman is the best option for them.
This is because the young quarterback brings energy to the team and wants to learn while playing in Baltimore.
They would be foolish to let Lamar walk because of their offensive coordinator.
