In keeping with Jason La Canfora of the Washington Put up, “a number of high-ranking workforce officers pointed to the New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons as franchises that just about should discover that possibility.”

The Jets ought to be throughout this. How might they not be? … That is one which’s over all of our heads [as general managers]. This comes from the highest. One morning the proprietor calls you and says, ‘I need Lamar Jackson,’ and your job turns into getting Lamar Jackson. Similar factor with the Falcons. They’ve to satisfy with this child and see what he needs. It’s a must to discover it.”

Just a few prospects exist for Jackson’s future:

Jackson’s contract calls for may additionally have groups feeling cautious of the price, although a cool market might see him pull again on a few of his preferences.
