Sports Editor talks about world sports

In sports around the nation. Lamar Jackson is the Baltimore Raven’s starting quarterback. Jackson has requested a trade after only being with the team since 2018. If traded he will be the youngest player to be traded while having an MVP. This could change the league if he gets traded to a good team. The New York Jets are also trying to work out a deal with the Packers in order to get Aaron Rodgers.

The Jets have already gotten a former Packer, Allen Lazard, per Rodgers’s request. Can Rodgers take the Jets to the playoffs? Can he use the weapons the Jets have to offer? Will he let his age get the better of him? Rodgers has been with the Packers since 2004. He is currently 39 years old. In the NBA the Brooklyn Nets head coach Jacque Vaughn said that Ben Simmons is being shut down for the season.

Simmons was a former number-one overall pick in the NBA draft back in 2016. After having a good rookie year, Simmons had high expectations for the next few years. He did not live up to the expectations some would say. After a few years with the Philadelphia 76ers, he was traded to the Brooklyn Nets with a few other people and picks for James Harden.
