3 Teams that makes more sense for Lamar Jackson than the Atlanta Falcons
3. New York Giants
The New York Giants have their head coach proven by a team that was playing at a high level with a lot of roster issues to fix. Daniel Jones is set to hit free agency and will be expecting a huge payday that could hurt the Giants moving forward.
If you’re the Ravens the best case is sending Jackson to the NFC if forced to trade the star. From Lamar’s perspective, it would seem appealing to land with a big-market NFC team where the path to a Super Bowl is far clearer and would have a deeper appreciation.
The Giants have both the draft picks and the cap space needed to land Lamar with solid pieces to build around on both sides of the ball. Instead of going through Mahomes, Lawrence, Burrow, and Allen to win the AFC Jackson would be faced off against Kirk Cousins, Geno Smith, Jalen Hurts, or Dak Prescott. Without question, it would be a great fit and a far easier road for a team that hasn’t been a serious contender since Eli Manning upset Tom Brady and the Patriots for a second time in the 2011 season.
