Does Lamar get traded?
« on: March 27, 2023, 04:34:03 PM »
As a Ravens fan, I kind of hope so. This contract negotiations of the past two years is out of control. Iím not sure that the dude is intelligent enough to realize he was given a fair offer and that heís crippling the team with what he wants. Word is he was offered $133 million at signing, with $200 million fully guaranteed if he was still with the team at five years. Total guarantee was $175 million regardless. I think him not having an agent is doing himself a disservice. Iím all for players getting paid, but this seems outright greedy.

Plus, he had an absolutely shit season.... he has done more harm than good. He was so sure he would take them to a Superbowl that he was biding his time. Now he just looks like a problem child for other teams that may have wanted him.

He's gone.

Too bad because the Ravens are probably the ideal place for him.

I believe this as well. The team is built for him and I think that heíll go somewhere else thatís not a perfect fit and heíll get injured playing his style. Heís a gifted athlete for sure, but a total dummy. I think he got a 7 on his Wonderlic.

Only 6 players in front of him?

Not bad at all.

Doesn't appear to be a market for him, which is crazy.

Lamar has burned some bridges with the Ravens.

However, he may have to stay with them if no one else wants him, which appears to be the case.

He wants too much guaranteed money and has the injury history.

The head coach has expressed very positive statements about wanting Lamar back.

Will be tough convincing his team who he quit on last year.

It will be hard for him to reduce his expectations about salary and return to the Ravens.

They are willing to pay him a lot if he returns.

He could be stubborn and prideful and sit out.

In that case the Ravens will move on.

They should draft a QB or go with Huntley.

Donít let his pro bowl selection fool you, he ainít winning anything. Only upside would be they wouldnít have to change the offense to suit him, but no WR is coming to Baltimore if they got nobody to throw it.

One flukeish play away from winning as many playoff games as Lamar has.
With what seems to settle around $45M less in a season.

Ok, I know Lamar is way better player but still, if you miss 30% of games from last two seasons, why would anybody pay fully guaranteed anything?

Shit, make it 60M/year with 20/guaranteed?

His comp % was ~ 67.5. That is good enough. But what happens if you make him throw 50x in a game? Good amount of that precentage comes from his ability to extend plays. So, if he starts to injure his legs it will drop even more.

They should draft a QB and keep Huntley. Start Huntley until the other QB is ready. Deep year for QB's.

I wouldn't take him. A 53.8% passer completion rate in college won't translate well to the NFL.

Ravens signed OBJ. Is this bait to keep Lamar or is it an insurance policy for a young QB?

Bad insurance policy as he probably won't last 6 games.

Do they have an insurance policy on OBJ?

Not going to lie, Boldin was about the best they ever had, they just didnít use him enough. Dude was an absolute animal on the super bowl run, so if Beckham can give them that style of play and production Iíd be happy with it. I did like Mason as well. Sucks Baltimore seems to get them on the back nine, although Boldin continued to produce in San Fran.

He'll threaten too but he'll end up playing somewhere. No way he misses out on that much cash.
