Lamar Jackson doesn’t seem to be happy with the Ravens’ round-one strategy

The Ravens continue to project optimism about locking Lamar Jackson up long-term, but Mike Florio and Charean Williams think that the 2019 MVP is setting himself up for disaster by refusing to come to the table.

The Ravens shook things up on Thursday night, starting with a trade that sent receiver Marquis Brown to the Cardinals for a first-round pick that eventually became center Tyler Linderbaum. Quarterback Lamar Jackson didn’t seem to be thrilled with those developments.

First, Jackson retweeted a message expressing dismay and apoplexy, with profanity, regarding the decision to trade Brown.

After Linderbaum was picked, Jackson tweeted, “Wtf.”

The moves come at a time when Jackson has refused to engage the team on a long-term deal. If he doesn’t agree with the draft strategy, that won’t make him any more anxious to stick around.
