Jalen Ramsey’s Agent Has Requested Trade, Jaguars Have No Plans To Trade Him

     

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey’s agent asked for a trade after yesterday’s loss to the Texans. 

According to Schefter, the Jaguars have spoken with interested teams, but there is no current plan to trade Ramsey. Schefter says that Jacksonville is asking teams for “at least” one first-round pick for Ramsey, but they want more than that. 

A league source tells Schefter that he believes Ramsey could be traded this week, given that once there is a sideline confrontation between a head coach and a player, both sides have to move on.

Ian Rapoport says that the trade request stems from his frustration with how he’s being used and from a confrontation with coach Doug Marrone on Sunday. Per Rapoport, Ramsey wants to play man-to-man and lockdown receivers while the Jaguars have had him playing zone. 

Reports last year mentioned that the Jaguars were considering trading him. However, nothing came of them.

For what it’s worth, Ramsey said in an interview last month that his two ideal teams to play for would be either the Titans or the Raiders once they move to Las Vegas. 

After the team informed Ramsey they would not negotiate a contract extension with him this year, Ramsey said he wouldn’t be offering any hometown discount in his next contract. 

Ramsey, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2016. He signed a four-year, $23.35 million contract and is set to make a base salary of $3.63 million in 2019.

The Jaguars picked up Ramsey’ fifth-year option that will cost them around $13 million for the 2020 season and will become fully guaranteed on the first day of 2020 league year.

In 2019, Ramsey has appeared in two games for the Jaguars and recorded nine tackles, no interceptions and one pass defense.
