Texans need to at least talk to Lamar Jackson

The Houston Texans should inquire about acquiring Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson if the opportunity exists.

On Tuesday, Jackson signed a $32.4 million non-exclusive franchise tag to remain in Baltimore.

The critical wording is non-exclusive, meaning that any franchise can still talk to the former MVP, make an offer and allow Baltimore to match the offer.

Other franchises can sign him to an offer sheet only used once in NFL history in 1998.

If Baltimore decides to part ways with Jackson, they would automatically receive two first-round draft picks.

According to ESPN’s Bill Barnwell, a team could also negotiate a sign-and-trade with Baltimore.

But the market seems less active than one would think for a former MVP.
