Dolphins safety foolishly tweets support for Lamar Jackson to Miami

Where does Lamar Jackson end up?

It is a question the NFL media and fans want to know.

The Baltimore Ravens would like to agree on a new contract for Jackson, but does it want to pay a steep price? If not a trade or release is in order. Baltimore put Jackson on a non-exclusive franchise tag, meaning any team that offers more money for him could get him. Several teams need a quarterback and would make great suitors for Jackson. The Miami Dolphins are committed to Tua Tagovailoa as its signal-caller. Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel and the front office believe in native Hawaiian and have faith he can stay healthy. Miami exercised the fifth-year option on Tagovailoa’s rookie contract, assuring him it would not pursue any other marquee quarterbacks in free agency. Before suffering multiple concussions last season, he started 13 games — totaling 3,548 passing yards and 25 touchdowns. McDaniel told that he sees the “hunger” Tagovailoa has for next fall and he’s excited about it. However, a safety for the Dolphins tweeted support for Jackson to come to Miami.

Deshone Elliott wants Jackson to come to the Dolphins.

As a former sixth-round pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, the University of Texas alum got ripped by Dolphins fans for his tweet.

Miami supporters love Tagovailoa as its quarterback and believe in him.

Tagovailoa looks to show everyone in the fall that he will be on the field more.
