The professional soccer league (NFL) is about to explode after it was announced that Lamar Jackson had requested a trade to the Ravens, and that the request was first made on March 2.

Jackson went public via Twitter as Ravens coach John Harbaugh sat down to meet with reporters at the NFL Owners Meetings in Phoenix. Harbaugh, who had not seen the tweets, answered about two dozen questions on the subject.

A problem that is both monetary and solvable

Jackson and the Ravens have been in contract talks for more than two years. Jackson’s tweet made it clear that this is a financial disagreement.

For that reason, Harbaugh indicated he hopes an agreement can still be reached. The two sides have until July 17 to reach a multi-year deal before Jackson is locked into the non-exclusive $32.4 million franchise tag.

“You have two parties that appreciate each other. Lamar believes in us and we believe in Lamar, and we know where we want to move forward,” Harbaugh said.

“It’s a monetary issue. That can be worked out, that can be worked out. It’s a matter of negotiating and continuing down that path, and it will work out in the end. There’s always going to be creative ways to work those things out. We talk about finances. We talk about numbers. And the numbers can be solved,” he concluded.

Harbaugh said the Ravens are preparing as if Jackson will be their quarterback in the future. And that’s because even though Jackson has requested a trade, that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen.

His coach is even counting on him for the first game of the new NFL 2023 season.

“I’m following it very closely, as is everyone else here and waiting for a resolution,” Harbaugh said. “I’m excited, thinking about Lamar all the time. Thinking about him as our quarterback. We’re building our offense around that idea.”

The NFL soap opera has already begun and it doesn’t look like it’s going to end. Let’s remember that this is the first season in more than 20 years that Tom Brady will not be in the league.
