Lamar Jackson wants to move on. The star quarterback is not happy with the Baltimore Ravens.

He shared on social media that he requested a trade on March 2nd. However, it wasn’t publically known about the trade until he went on Twitter.

“… I love the game of football and my dream is to help a team win the Super Bowl,” he tweeted, adding that Ravens fans “are great but I had to make a business decision that was best for my family and I. No matter how far I go or where my career takes me, I’ll continue to be close to my fans of Baltimore Flock nation and the entire State of Maryland. You’ll See me again.”

Jackson and the Ravens have failed to reach a long-term agreement. This comes after last week when the league told teams not to negotiate with a man named Ken Francis.

There have been reports that suggest that he wants a fully guaranteed contract. However, only those inside the talks know the terms that have been offered to the former league MVP.

Without Jackson, the Ravens offensive attack will fall off. He has been the bright spot with not-the-best weapons around him.

The Ravens placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Jackson on March 7th. This allowed other teams to negotiate with him.

“I don’t know what direction it’s going to go,” Ravens head coach Jon Harbaugh said. “I don’t have a crystal ball. I can’t tell the future. But I know whatever happens is going to be good. It’s going to be OK. I have my hopes. I love Lamar Jackson.”

The 26-year-old quarterback has made 70 appearances. He made 61 starts. He is 45-16 as a starter in the league.

In his career, he has gone 1,055 of 1,655 for 12,209 yards. He has thrown 101 touchdown passes and 38 interceptions.

Last season due to an injury, he made 12 appearances. He was 8-4 as a starter.

He went 203 of 326 for 2,242 yards. He had 17 touchdown passes and seven interceptions.
