5 Quarterbacks who could save the Atlanta Falcons next season
By Nick Halden
1. Lamar Jackson
Let’s be clear here, of all the possibilities on this list Lamar Jackson is the least likely to find his way to the Atlanta Falcons. However, considering the continual lack of respect Lamar has been given around the league and his contract situation it is possible Lamar demands his way out of Baltimore.
We have watched an off-season full of quarterback movement we haven’t seen in any season past. The NFL is following the NBA’s trend of allowing their star players to become mobile and have a level of power of where they are traded. Lamar Jackson is his own agent and hasn’t been able to get a deal done with the Ravens.
In all likelihood, Jackson will sign a deal that will make him one of the highest-paid players in football to keep him in Baltimore. However, if negotiations fall apart the Falcons shouldn’t hesitate and should be willing to spend whatever it would take to get Lamar to Atlanta. He is already an MVP and has established himself as one of the most dynamic players in the league. If he becomes unhappy in Baltimore Atlanta should be willing to spend whatever it takes to bring one of the best quarterbacks in football to Atlanta.
