The 2022 NFL draft is here and things got off to a questionable start as far as Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson thought.

Apparently, Baltimore traded wide receiver Marquise Brown for the Arizona Cardinals’ sole first-round pick, which the Ravens used to select Iowa Hawkeyes center Tyler Linderbaum.

Shortly after the pick, Jackson expressed some dissatisfaction on his Twitter account @Lj\_era8.

In one of his tweets, he said, “Wtf.”

Though many saw his remark as having to do with Linderbaum, Jackson later denied that and explained his stance.

Quoting the Raven’s official Twitter announcement where the team welcomed Linderbaum to Baltimore, Jackson said, “It’s not about my new center🙄 stop that bs.”

Linderbaum will be replacing Bradley Bozeman, who left for the Carolina Panthers.

“(Coach) John (Harbough) and I did speak with Lamar – we always do,” GM Eric DeCosta said. “Lamar is probably one of the great leaders of our team, also in the community, as a teammate, in the building. So, we do try to communicate with him as best as possible.”

As to why the wide receiver was traded, DeCosta said that it was actually at Brown’s request.

“Marquise came to me after the season and requested that he be traded,” DeCosta told The Associated Press. “Was not happy, and wanted to play elsewhere.”

Before the deal was made, DeCosta and coach John Harbaugh had consulted Jackson regarding the situation.

“We had a communication with him, actually, before the trade was made, to be honest, and explained the situation as best as we could,” DeCosta said. “It’s challenging for everybody. Our locker room is very close, which I’m proud of, as Coach (Harbaugh) would say. So, any time a teammate is potentially getting traded, it’s something that’s hard for the players to understand at times, but in the end, it happens, it’s part of the business.”
