“Sc**w you dude!” – Lamar Jackson’s teammate lashes out at NFL free agent endorsing Ravens breakup
The NFL world is still reacting to Lamar Jackson's revelation that he requested a trade from the Baltimore Ravens back on March 2, and it hasn't taken long for players and fans to give their thoughts.
Tony Jefferson II, a current free agent safety, is one such example. Before Jackson announced his intention to leave, the 31-year-old took to Twitter and stated that he believes it is best for both of them to go their separate ways and start over.
Current Ravens defender Marlon Humphrey saw the tweet and it clearly irritated him, so he responded.
"Screw you dude!"
So it appeared that Humphrey didn't like what Jefferson tweeted, and we imagine he didn't want to lose one of the team's best players, but that now appears to be the case.
We haven't heard much from Ravens players about Jackson's contract situation, but Humphrey has stated his thoughts on what he believes when people say it's time to move on.
Now that Jackson has requested a trade, it will make for interesting viewing to see exactly where he ends up.
Where will Lamar Jackson play in 2023?
There are a host of teams that need a star quarterback and now with Jackson seeking a move away from Baltimore, a lot of teams should be in play. The Indianapolis Colts are looking at all options and "doing the work" as general manager Chris Ballard stated.
But the New England Patriots are also reportedly interested in his services. While the Ravens can still match any offer they get for a trade, which makes this a rather sticky situation.
Whether or not there is bad blood between Lamar Jackson and the Ravens will be revealed soon, as if a team makes an offer for the quarterback, Baltimore can accept or reject it.
Head coach Jim Harbaugh has stated after finding out about the trade request that he is still preparing to work with Jackson this season, so there is still a lot to play out here.
Just where Lamar Jackson will be playing football in 2023 is unknown, but it is looking increasingly unlikely that it will be with the Ravens.
