Report: Chiefs, Seahawks & Eagles Most Linked Teams To Jalen Ramsey

     

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the Chiefs, Seahawks and Eagles have been the most-linked teams to Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey based on the conversations he’s had around the NFL. 

According to La Canfora, the Jaguars still want two first-round picks for Ramsey. However, La Canfora says that Jacksonville does not have this kind of offer on the table for him right now.

While there was a report that Ramsey could be traded on Friday, La Canfora says it’s possible this situation could stretch out longer than that. La Canfora doesn’t believe Ramsey will remain in Jacksonville beyond the trade deadline.

  • 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. 

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.

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.
