Jalen Ramsey Interested In Playing For Titans Or Raiders If He Becomes A Free Agent


Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey said in an interview his two ideal teams to play for would be either the Titans or the Raiders once they move to Las Vegas. 

Ramsey mentioned the lack of state income tax in Tennessee and Nevada as appealing factors. When reminded Florida also doesn’t tax income, he responded: “But we’re thinking about, we were making moves. And Vegas, you got everything there.”

Ramsey is from Nashville originally. The cornerback’s comments came during an appearance on the Bussin With the Boys podcast hosted by Titans OT Taylor Lewan and free-agent LB Will Compton.

Ramsey still has two years under contract after the Jaguars exercised his fifth-year option, which allows them to keep him through the 2020 season.

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 has been a cornerstone of the Jaguars defense since they drafted him in 2016, but there were reports last year the Jaguars were considering trading him. 

Ramsey’ option should cost the Jaguars around $13 million for the 2020 season and will become fully guaranteed on the first day of 2020 league year.

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.

In 2018, Ramsey appeared in all 16 games for the Jaguars and recorded 65 tackles, three interceptions and 13 pass defenses.
