Trade no. 3: Lamar Jackson gets his main man
How are Baltimore Ravens fans feeling about their back field over the last couple of years? Just off the top of my head, I can come up with: Alex Collins, Kenneth Dixon, Javorius Allen, Ty Montgomery and Gus Edwards. All of these guys have suited up and played meaningful snaps in just the last season or two.
Isn’t it about time the Ravens stick with somebody? I was almost sure it was going to be Collins, but his inconsistency in holding onto the football kept creeping up on him. Then, Edwards came out of no where and stole the show. The rest have just been sprinkled in here and there.
You have (what we think is) your franchise quarterback in Lamar Jackson. Wide receiver is not necessarily a weak point, but it’s not an overwhelming strength. Tight end actually looks very bright for years to come. The Ravens have some issues to fix, and landing a guy like Howard could end all of the questions and controversy about that back field.
A dual-threat quarterback with a true work horse running back in the same back field would be something Ravens fans would have to get excited about. Jackson is not a pure passer by any means, so surrounding him with more playmakers should be a priority at this point.
