Lamar Jackson’s remarkable talent and stunning performances on the field have made him one of the most exciting players in the league today.
However, despite his obvious talent, there has been a cloud of uncertainty hanging over his future with the Baltimore Ravens. His ongoing standoff with NFL teams continues to be a case of curiosity for the NFL world.
Despite being the 2019 NFL MVP, the Ravens chose non-franchise tagged Jackson, leaving his future with the team up in the air. While other teams in the league expressed interest in acquiring the QB, once he was tagged, they backed out of negotiations.
This has left Jackson in a somewhat precarious position, unsure of what the future holds for him. Now, he is seeking revenge for being passed on by the teams and for not being taken seriously.
Lamar Jackson eyeing revenge
Even though Jackson has not been able to perform at his full potential on the field because of his injuries, he is still undeniably one of the best quarterbacks in the game.
The 2019 MVP is an asset, and any team who could acquire this asset would get a boost in their offensive arsenal. According to an article by Robert Zeglinski in For The Win, Jackson is looking forward to facing all those teams who have said to be not interested in the QB for their roster.
Steven Ruiz compiled career statistics of Jackson against all those teams and coaches who have discontinued their interest in the player.
The statistics speak for themselves. Jackson has left most of them in the dust with his performance. But, interestingly, teams decided to neglect all the times when the QB caused a menace for their team on the field.

ackson has been in a long standoff with the Baltimore Ravens. The player has been demanding a contract like the $230 million guaranteed deal Deshaun Watson got last year. Apart from this, the QB also declined a $133 million fully guaranteed contract from the Ravens, as he felt that his value is worth more than that for everything he has done for the organization.
