With Lamar Jackson’s future with the Baltimore Ravens now in question, just about every analyst is coming up with their own scenario on how the Ravens can handle this. But Richard Sherman has an idea for a very bold business that all parties involved can enjoy.
during your podcast Volume, Sherman suggested that his old Seattle Seahawks might be willing to swing a trade for Jackson where they would send current starter Geno Smith to Baltimore. Sherman said the Seahawks would not only be willing to pay Jackson what he wants, but they also have the assets to add on top of Smith.
“What if a crazy scenario happened … and the Seattle Seahawks called the Baltimore Ravens and said ‘Hey, we’re not going to pay Geno that kind of money (which would be great and they could do that). But we’re going to give Lamar Will pay. Lamar in Seattle and Geno in Baltimore?” Sherman said before showing the camera an approving face.
The Seahawks and Ravens are both in a position where they have quarterbacks that carried them to the playoffs and are due for huge payouts in 2023. Smith was the breakout player of the season, breaking several Seahawks records in his first year as a starter, while Jackson is already a two-time Pro Bowler but seeking a record-setting deal.
If the Seahawks are of the opinion that Geno Smith’s strong season was a fluke or if they feel he is too old to invest in a long-term contract, then a trade for Lamar Jackson could be worth the remainder of Pete Carroll’s twilight season. Will solve their QB problems. years.
For Baltimore, Geno Smith would be a passer who could be more efficient with the ball through the air and give them a more balanced offense.
There are definitely worse options out there.
