Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson made headlines during the NFL Draft on Thursday night, tweeting about his displeasure with the team's moves.

It was evident that Jackson was upset the Ravens traded Marquise Brown to the Cardinals.

What made this situation a bit odd was that Jackson tweeted, "Wtf," after the Ravens selected Iowa offensive lineman Tyler Linderbaum with the 25th overall pick.

Fortunately for the Ravens, Jackson put out a follow-up tweet to let everyone know that he isn't mad about Linderbaum joining the squad.

"It's not about my center," Jackson tweeted on Thursday night. "Stop that bs."

The reality is Jackson is just really upset Brown is no longer on the roster. They formed a strong bond in Baltimore, on and off the field.

With only one year remaining on Jackson's contract with the Ravens, it's imperative the two sides get on the same page.

If the Ravens are going to remain a contender in the AFC, they'll need Jackson to be on board with their personnel decisions.
