The Baltimore Ravens quarterback was distraught throughout the year because the team could not come up with a high-paying contract. And now the Super Bowl will take place in less than a week. While the Chiefs and the Eagles will go head-to-head against each other, the rest of the league will get busy with the offseason. Teams will prepare for free agency, trades, and the 2023 NFL Draft. Therefore, this might be the best time for the Ravens to look into the contract of Lamar Jackson. Otherwise, there is another NFC that will try to swoop the QB away.
Even though the Heisman Trophy winner’s resume is not shining bright like a star, he still is only 26 years old with an MVP award to his name. The QB has been plagued with injury for multiple seasons now. But when he is healthy, his agile self and speed like electricity pose a great threat. Hence, if Baltimore will not offer him an electrifying contract then some other team will definitely take its chances. And there is one on the horizon who is immensely interested in the 2x Pro Bowler.
Which team wants the valuable service of Lamar Jackson?
It has been two years and the young signal-caller still waits for the team to offer him an unbeatable contract. But nothing is happening. Then came the owner of the Atlanta Falcons who is looking into to see if he’s got a chance at bagging Jackson.

According to New York Post, Arthur Blank thinks Jackson is the guy for him and can deal three first-round picks along with a new contract.
Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons could become potential landing spots for the shot-caller before a new season starts in March. There is a possibility that the Ravens can trade him out of the AFC if they do not keep him with them in the summer. Many believed that the reason why Baltimore did not offer Jackson an updated contract was that he desired for a similar contract to that of Deshaun Watson. Even though the Falcons will give him that update, there is no confirmation if he will get $230 million for five years.
