Latest On Jaguars, Jalen Ramsey

When it was announced that Jalen Ramsey would play Thursday’s game with the Jaguars, the initial word was that he’d likely be moved the following day on Friday. Obviously Friday came and went, and Ramsey is still with Jacksonville.

Don’t expect a deal to get done anytime soon either. There is “no deal in the works,” according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network (Twitter link). A source told Rapoport that “the longer this goes on, the more likely it is he stays,” although Rapsheet notes that Ramsey hasn’t changed his stance and his trade demand still stands.

In a follow-up tweet, Rapoport’s NFL Network colleague Mike Garafolo notes that the “asking price is too high” and that it “doesn’t look like anyone is going to match it right now.” He also reports that it doesn’t look like the Jags plan on lowering their asking price, and that there’s “nothing percolating” on the trade front. As has been previously reported, it looks like the Jaguars are looking for multiple early picks, and likely multiple first-rounders.

Jacksonville appears to be hoping that their Thursday night win over the Titans will convince Ramsey to change his mind about a trade. The Jaguars appear rejuvenated with Gardner Minshew under center, so maybe their plan will be successful. We heard recently that Ramsey’s issue is with the front office and Tom Coughlin rather than with Doug Marrone and the coaching staff, making things somewhat more tenable for the time being. The Chiefs, Ravens, Vikings, Raiders, Eagles, and Seahawks have all reportedly made “substantive inquiries” on the young corner.

    Sleeper team to land Ramsey is the lions. Patricia wants to pair Ramsey up with Slay and the lions have the cap room to extend Ramsey immediately

      Didn’t he talk all about building the team from the middle out when he first got there? Throwing a ton of money and multiple first rounds at Ramsey doesn’t accomplish that, even if he would make them better.

        And he has brought in Damon “Snacks” Harrison and Mike Daniels as defensive tackles and has draft 2 middle LBs in the first 2 rounds the last 2 years(Jarred Davis and Jahlani Tavai) also brought in Trey Flowers on the Dline. If that’s not building a team from the middle out I don’t know what is. He addressed the middle now time to address the “out” with Ramsey

          I don’t think the Lions are in the position to be giving up the pieces required to acquire Ramsey.

    Money sure seems to solve a multitude of problems. I’m sure a huge contract would changes Ramsey’s tune. Khan needs to open the check book and make it happen. He’s your franchise player.

  3. Two first round draft picks for a contending team, like the chiefs, wouldn’t be enough. Two 28-32 overall picks for top 3 corner in the league? Not nearly enough imo.
