It has been almost 2 months since the Baltimore Ravens‘ 2022 season came to an end and they still don’t appear to be any closer to having an answer about who their starting quarterback will be in 2023.

The team remains locked in a contract dispute with Lamar Jackson as they seemingly remain unwilling to meet Jackson’s demands for guarantees in his contract.

The first big decision the Ravens will have to make on this situation is coming up soon with the team only having until next week to franchise tag Jackson.

While they continue to consider their options, it appears the team is taking a look at the options available at the position in this year’s draft.

According to NFL reporter Aaron Wilson, the Ravens are one of the many teams who will be meeting with Anthony Richardson at the NFL Combine.

While the Ravens would surely prefer for this offseason to end with Lamar Jackson remaining their starting quarterback, looking at potential replacements in case they end up trading him is the right move.

If the Ravens trade Jackson, there is going to be an absolute haul of draft picks involved in the deal and those picks would likely be coming from a team with a pick early in this year’s draft.

While there are some major questions about Richardson as a prospect, he is the rookie that would require the least changes for Ravens’ offense, which is heavily reliant on their quarterback’s ability to run the ball.

It wouldn’t be surprising if the Baltimore Ravens continued to meet with quarterbacks at the combine as they continue to deal with uncertainty, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they are actually planning to draft one this year.
