Franchise tag fallout: What are Lamar Jackson's options from here

14 days ago   |   By Sportsnet

The Baltimore Ravens placed the franchise tag on star quarterback Lamar Jackson on Tuesday, answering two important questions in this long saga and prompting many more.
First and foremost, the biggest question leading up to this point has been whether the two sides would be able to reach a long-term deal prior to Tuesday's Franchise Tag deadline, thus avoiding the designation altogether. Clearly, that answer is no.
Which leads us to the second answer we got on Tuesday, centred around what kind of tag the team would use. Rather than using the exclusive tag, which would have cost Baltimore...
