The Baltimore Ravens’ decision to place the non-exclusive franchise tag on quarterback Lamar Jackson opens the door for a QB-needy team to swoop in and make a mind-blowing offer to secure his services in 2023 and beyond.
It’ll cost an interested team quite a bit, including two first-round picks and a boatload of guaranteed money.
It’s unclear which team will be in the mix for the former NFL MVP, but according to the oddsmakers at Bet Online, Jackson could end up in the NFC North.
The Detroit Lions have been tabbed the most-likely destination for Lamar Jackson at 3-to-1 odds.
This is terrible news for Chicago Bears fans, even if nothing comes from it. Vegas insiders tend to have valuable intel, so these odds can’t be dismissed as offseason conjecture.

The NFC North is on the verge of ridding Aaron Rodgers from its ranks. Justin Fields is lining up to be the division’s most talented and physically gifted quarterback. There’s an argument that he’d still be that guy even if Lamar Jackson ends up in Detroit, but it’s not a slam dunk.
The Detroit Lions will be a very real problem for a very long time if they land a game-wrecking quarterback like Jackson.
