The Jaguars announced that CB Jalen Ramsey would return to practice in a limited basis on Wednesday.
Ian Rapoport reports Ramsey will do individual drills two days after seeing a specialist for his back injury. Ramsey has not practiced or played since going public with his request for a trade.
The Jaguars, however, have maintained they are not trading Ramsey, even “for five first-round picks.” Owner Shad 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.
Chris Mortensen said in a recent ESPN Radio interview that there are four teams still “highly highly interested” in pursuing a trade for Ramsey including the Eagles, Chiefs, Ravens and Chargers.
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.
