Ravens reportedly in the Veteran Quarterback Market

“They’ve already moved ahead in leaps and bounds in the 2023 NFL Draft by the Panthers, who traded with the Bears for the No. 1 overall selection. And with Houston second, Arizona third, and Indianapolis fourth, the Colts would be the third pick. , at best, from rookie quarterbacks in April,” NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal wrote. “If there’s a team that surprisingly jumps into the mix for Lamar Jackson, Indy makes the most sense.”

Following the release of Ryan, the Colts have two quarterbacks on their roster: veteran Nick Foles and Sam Ehlinger from the 2021 sixth round.

“They haven’t had a franchise-caliber quarterback since Andrew Luck announced his sudden retirement in 2019, relying on one-year emergencies like Jacoby Brissett, Philip Rivers, Carson Wentz and Ryan,” wrote Brian Wacker of The Baltimore Sun. Indianapolis also owns the No. 4 in this year’s draft, which it could use as a quarterback — if it believes one of the top four is worthy of leading the franchise. But the city that once held the NFL’s Baltimore’s team in the middle of the night is now the team best positioned to steal its superstar quarterback and 2019 NFL Most Valuable Player.”

If Jackson eventually signs an offer sheet with the Colts or another team, the Ravens will have five days to match. If Baltimore chose not to match the offer, it would receive two first-round picks from the team. The Colts are fourth in the overall standings this year.

Darius Slay to Baltimore was a fleeting thought

With the free agency frenzy in full swing, no one was more an agent of chaos yesterday than five-time Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay, and the Ravens played a peripheral role in the drama.

It was reported this morning that the Eagles were planning to release Slay, who tweeted his farewell to Philadelphia.
