The Ravens were named one of the best fits for Anthony Richardson
If the Ravens part ways with Jackson, who will be under center in Baltimore next season?
Jordan Tajani of CBS Sports The Ravens were named one of the 10 best fits for first-round prospect Anthony Richardson. Some pundits mocked Richardson to the Ravens at No. 22 overall, but the Florida star’s draft stock is rising after his stellar performance at the combine.
“While the Cam Newton comparisons to Richardson are inevitable, he’s also received some Lamar-like praise,” Tajani wrote. “Actually, Richardson said he started calling himself ‘Cam Jackson’ in high school. No joke. We know Richardson can run the ball, and he has a cannon of an arm — even if that cannon needs some polishing. John Harbaugh on turning a quarterback into a perennial MVP contender Guy. Maybe he’ll do the same to Richardson.”
Would the Ravens be interested in trading for Courtland Sutton or Allen Robinson?
“The Baltimore Ravens always seem to need a wide receiver,” Hear wrote. “As good as the team’s personnel record has been over the past two decades, wideout is one position the Ravens have not seen success with.
“The Ravens have a bit of capital in terms of draft picks, owning just five, but DeCosta is savvy when it comes to trades. And it’s not like Sutton commands first-round value. Either side can make it work.”
Sutton, 27, had 64 catches for 829 yards and two touchdowns this past season. His best season was in 2019 when he was named to the Pro Bowl after recording 72 catches for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns.
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Rams have reportedly granted permission to trade veteran wide receiver Allen Robinson and are willing to pay a portion of Robinson’s $15.25 million guaranteed salary to facilitate the deal.
