Andrews was a very good redzone target and a mediocre one everywhere else. And saying "they tried" doesn't and shouldn't matter to Lamar. The one that could play a tiny bit the dumped for nothing, and he was Lamar's best friend on the team. I don't think the Ravens have ever successfully drafted a WR.

The offense argument is also moot. That offense was designed to utilize his skills while he learned to be a pro style passer. IMHO he is perfectly capable of doing that now and deserves the weapons to throw too.

The money to build a team argument is also moot. They had his entire rookie deal to build a SB team and failed completely. Why should he trust that front office?

The injury point does have it's validity. I would argue that he quite likely could have played last year, but with his contact hanging over things I totally get why he choose to not play. The size issue is silly. He's almost the same size as Hurts. The Ravens also don't seem to like paying for pass protection. Again, why should he trust a front office that is still cashing in on it's old reputation?

As for the Watson comp, sure he played more games in his 3 years pre suspension than Lamar's last three, but.....Lamar won more games in that time with arguably lesser talent around him.

The anti-Lamar contingency is boarderline insane. He's a top ten QB with top 3 upside, he's a singular talent and a joy to watch.
