If the Raven's won't meet his valuation, and they know him better than anyone, why would another team trade at least a couple of first round picks for him and PAY him money that the Raven's wouldn't which you have to believe is in the $50m a year range?
How would any team even trade for that if they haven't planned for it for some time? Hard to find $50m a year in your current and future cap if you haven't been structuring your roster with that intent.
Fun idea. Raven's trade him to the Falcons. We take #8 and #22 this year and next years 1st from them to move up and get a QB.
Because they don't want to end up with Sam Darnold/Zach Wilson/Tray Lance (maybe). Mina Kimes and Danny Kelly were talking about this last week on the Bill Simmons Podcast. Some teams have so fetishized the rookie contract aspect that they forget that the goal is to get a long-term starting quarterback who can play at a high level.
Larmar isn't a player without blemish, but he's much less blemished than Deshaun Watson. You can totally understand why he would be peeved that he's not getting similar shine on the trade market. Part of that is probably the fault of his deciding not to have an agent who can beat the bushes more professionally than Uncle Carlos or whomever.
Teams can structure these deals pretty easily to accommodate a big QB contract. Most teams only have a handful of players under contract two or three years down the road, so they have a ton of cap flexibility for the future.
