Jaguars Owner Shahid Khan Says Jalen Ramsey Will Play This Week


Jaguars owner Shahid Khan says star CB Jalen Ramsey will play this week against the Saints, per Katherine Ross.

Khan says he met Ramsey a few days ago and had a “heart-to-heart.” He believes the two sides will be able to come to a resolution that makes sense for both sides. 

Ramsey has not played since going public with his request for a trade a few weeks ago. Since then, Ramsey has sat out with a variety of ailments, though he returned from a back injury to practice this week. 

The Jaguars have maintained they are not trading Ramsey, even “for five first-round picks.” Khan does not want to set a precedent with players dictating to the team and he’s willing to sign Ramsey to an extension when his contract is up in two years. 

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 three games for the Jaguars and recorded 18 tackles, a forced fumble and one pass defense.

We’ll have more regarding Ramsey as the news is available.
