If the Baltimore Ravens want to keep Lamar Jackson, they have to find him a true star wide receiver. They are running out of options, though one big-name receiver could be up for grabs: Seattle Seahawks star DK Metcalf.

Metcalf recorded 967 yards on 75 catches, including a career-high 12 touchdowns, last season. The 24-year-old would be a massive upgrade for the ravens, though they would have to acquire him via trade. Although the Seahawks are entering a rebuild after the departures of Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner, they aren’t ready to shop him to opposing teams.

Jackson took recruiting matters into his own hands — even after saying he wouldn’t do so — by publicly asking Metcalf to slide in. Although Metcalf isn’t a free agent, and thus the only way this could happen is if the Seahawks traded him,

Although Metcalf didn’t directly respond to Jackson’s recruiting pitch, he did respond to Jackson dissing a detractor in the tweet’s replies.

Baltimore needs to make something big happen. Jackson has expressed his desire to remain with the Ravens but he still needs a contract extension in order to do so. Although he had a rough 2021 season, he is crucial to the team’s success. Finding him the right pieces to work with is paramount.

Jackson has needed better wide receivers for practically his whole career. The Ravens should look to Metcalf, even with his absurd diet, as a guy worth trading for.
