Today on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington react to Lamar Jackson's most recent tweets, revealing his trade request back on March 2nd. The guys explain how his unprofessional behavior during his contract negotiations with the Baltimore Ravens, including publicly airing his grievances and setting unrealistic demands, has only hurt his value. Lamar is one of the most talented players that has ever played this game but if this is how he conducts business, no one in the league will want to work with him.
Jonas Knox: "I love Lamar Jackson, love everything about him, but it seems like he's pouting. That's how this comes across."
LaVar Arrington: "It's dangerously close to being so toxic that you can't give him a contract just based off of what he's letting the public know in terms of how he feels about Baltimore... You're putting things out there that can't be taken back. I think less would have been way more for Lamar Jackson."
Brady Quinn: "To sit there and act like Baltimore hasn't done a lot to help appease him and help him win, you're lying, and so this whole thing right now comes off as incredibly unprofessional with the way he's conducting himself... And that now plays a part in why teams might be hesitant to give him the offer that he's looking for."
