Cardinals Inquire On Jalen Ramsey

The Cardinals might not be the leaders in the clubhouse for Jalen Ramsey, but they’re at least interested. The Cardinals don’t believe they’ll land the standout cornerback, but they did speak with the Jaguars about him, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter) hears. 

They also restructured the contract of linebacker Chandler Jones this week, Schefter hears, giving them an additional $4MM in cap flexibility this season. That’s money that could, in theory, be put towards acquiring Ramsey and giving him the top-of-the-market extension that he seeks.

Here’s where things stand on the Ramsey front: The Jaguars are asking two first-round picks in a trade, but clubs have yet to meet their asking price. So far, they’ve received offers of one first-round choice from two different clubs, and teams could up the ante as time moves on. Ramsey will be in uniform for the Jaguars’ Thursday night game against the Titans, but it sounds like the Jags are hoping to trade him on Friday. The Raiders are among the teams with interest in the standout corner and most of the league’s teams want him as well.

Schefter also passes along this interesting note, via Twitter – Earlier this week, one team reached out to the league office and asked whether Ramsey could play on Sunday for a new club after he played Thursday for Jacksonville. The league informed the team that Ramsey could not, as league rules restrict players to one game per week.

    That defense would be nice Peterson and Ramsey and swearinger and Baker that’s a deadly secondary

    They might be thinking of moving Peterson who wanted to leave. Trade them straight up perhaps with a pick given age difference but not #1

      Dude, if you think trading a 30 year old DB for the best CB in the league, who is 25, is a straight up deal…you are either a Cards fan or on dope.

    The Cardinals shouldn’t be trading a #1 pick for anything other than an offensive lineman. Ramsey’s a good player, and he would allow them to trade Petersen, but if they don’t improve their O line, Murray is going to get killed.

      Absolutely.
      Although, enjoy the migraine that comes with it.
      He is an badazz cb.obviously, you do not watch the Jags. They will get a 1st and 3rd, though.
      I want a Mazarati and a playboy bunny, but I am not getting either.

      Probably not, if they are 2 Top-20 picks. There’s just the Franchise tag available as insurance. You’ve gotta pay this guy versus 5 years of controlled cost for 2 players. Will they be a Top-5 league talent? To be determined. They could end up like Taco Charlton.

    I think it’s going to b a surprise team. Maybe the Chiefs that get Ramsey. A team with a late first rounder that can afford to give 1 up. The Steelers just gave one up for Fitzpatrick. And Ramsey is much more proven then Minkah is right now.
