Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson announced he requested a trade earlier this month after the team had "not been interested in meeting my value" during negotiations on a long-term deal and decision to instead place a $32.4 million non-exclusive franchise tag on the former NFL MVP.
"As of March 2nd I requested a trade from the Ravens organization for which the Ravens has not been interested in meeting my value, any and everyone that’s has met me or been around me know I love the game of football and my dream is to help a team win the super bowl," Jackson tweeted in a statement to his fans. "You all are great but I had to make a business decision that was best for my family and I. No matter how far I go or where my career takes me, I’ll continue to be close to my fans of Baltimore Flock nation and the entire State of Maryland. You’ll See me again."
