Latest On Jalen Ramsey

     

According to Tim McManus, the Eagles are one of the teams exploring a trade for Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey. McManus says the team is “doing its homework” on Ramsey. 

Jerry McDonald reports the Raiders are another team interested in Ramsey. However, in addition to figuring out compensation, Oakland has to figure out upfront cash obstacles to the deal. 

Regardless, a trade involving Ramsey before Jacksonville’s Thursday-night game against the Titans seems unlikely, per Ian Rapoport. Friday would be the most likely date for a deal to get done. 

The Jaguars reportedly have two offers on the table for Ramsey already but are seeking two first-round picks for their former first-round corner. The Chiefs have been another team some have speculated to have interest, though there are conflicting reports

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. 

Ramsey’s agent requested a trade following Jacksonville’s loss and a confrontation on the sideline between the corner and Jaguars HC Doug Marrone. Jacksonville also reportedly considered trading him last year.

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.
