“The Ravens should’ve paid him; they’re going to end up paying more now”: Chris Broussard believes the Ravens made a mistake by not striking a deal with Lamar Jackson in offseason


Lamar Jackson is unarguably one of the greatest Quarterbacks to have ever played in the NFL. Having proved his mettle and exceeded his capabilities season after season, Jackson has never shied away from silencing his critics. On the same note, his offensive, passing and running prowess have been simply out of this world in the 2022-23 season.

This has surely made Chris Broussard point out how the Baltimore Ravens would be regretting their decision of not locking their star Quarterback down in this very offseason. Fans would be aware how Jackson wasn’t offered the desire extension before the start of the season. While the Ravens took their time; Jackson seemingly has increased his value. 

Chris Broussard quoted on the latest episode of First Things First, “The question with Lamar (Jackson) is, will he stay healthy? That’s the only question. I have brought this up many a times on the show that Lamar’s passing and rushing numbers – even though they were good last 2 seasons, they declined. So, we were like is he declining. Instead, he has gone the opposite way in this year. Obviously, his passing has improved and so is the running, which you wouldn’t expect given that he’s deep into his career.” 

Will Ravens throw the kitchen sink to hold onto Lamar Jackson next season? 

There is no doubt that Lamar Jackson has the potential to change the fate of the Baltimore Ravens for good. Having led them impressively, Jackson has always managed to lead the team on the scoreboard as well, to help them win. On the same note, Broussard added how the franchise would be paying the former MVP more, especially after he has given them every reason to do so. 

Broussard concluded, “The Ravens should’ve paid him. They’re going to end up paying more now.”
