Nobody is quite sure what’s in store for Lamar Jackson right now, as rumors are all over the place regarding the Baltimore Ravens superstar quarterback.

Recently, reports claimed that Jackson might actually be interested in playing for the New England Patriots. Now, a former player warns him about that desire.

Asante Samuel, who won two Super Bowls with New England, sent a warning to Lamar Jackson about wanting to play for the Patriots.

Now, this might be surprising to most, but Samuel has been critical of Bill Belichick in the past. Here he is during his appearance on the I Am Athlete podcast discussing Belichick.

He might actually have a point though. Especially when you consider Belichick’s career record without Tom Brady is 71-79. On top of that, the all-time record of the Patriots franchise is 43-42 without Brady.

The stats kind of suggest Brady was the reason New England was so successful over the last two decades.

Even so, Patriots fans are not too pleased with Asante Samuel, as they fire off shots of displeasure at the former Super Bowl-winning cornerback.

A lot of Patriots fans are reminding Samuel of his Super Bowl blunder.

It’s going to be okay, Pats fans. You have six championships. Losing a few shouldn’t be a big deal to you.

Where’s Salt Bae when you need him?

For now, Lamar Jackson’s future remains up in the air. Perhaps Samuel’s warning persuades him from wanting to play for the Patriots.

Either way, any team would be lucky to have Jackson. Hopefully, more clarification about his future comes to light soon.
