Ravens' Marlon Humphrey was asked the same question every time he tried recruiting players at Pro Bowl

It was reported last week that the Ravens would be franchise-tagging former MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson, and it could come under the Exclusive Franchise Tag. If that ends up being the case, Baltimore would "set the price" for an eventual potential trade of Jackson, though NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported last week that he doesn't think the Ravens will end up trading the speedster.

Jackson finished the 2022 season with a 62.3% completion percentage for 2,242 passing yards, 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions across 12 games, while recording 112 carries for 764 rushing yards and three touchdowns on the ground as well.

After Baltimore made Roquan Smith the highest paid inside linebacker in NFL history one month ago with a five-year, $100 million deal, many speculated that the team would use the franchise tag on Jackson.

The 26-year-old signal-caller got off to a monster start last fall, collecting 10 touchdown passes and two rushing scores through the first three weeks of the season, before recording only seven touchdown tosses (and five interceptions), along with just one rushing touchdown the rest of the way. He missed the final four-plus games of the regular season -- plus the Ravens' playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals -- due to a sprained PCL.

When Jackson went down with the injury in Week 13, it was reported that he'd only miss one-to-three weeks.
