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