Eagles player upset team missed out on Jalen Ramsey
At least one member of the Philadelphia Eagles was not pleased the team missed out on acquiring Jalen Ramsey.
On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Rams made news by trading Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens. Later in the day it was announced the Rams had acquired Ramsey from the Jacksonville Jaguars for a collection of draft picks.
There were surely several suitors for Ramsey, who is one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. However, it was the Rams who ended up the big winners in the Ramsey sweepstakes. That didn’t sit well with an Eagles player, who told ESPN’s Josina Anderson the team “dropped the ball” in not trading for Ramsey.
#Eagles player to me on Jalen Ramsey going to the #Rams: "We dropped the ball. I don't even want to talk about that ([email protected]#^). Everybody knew what it was going to take to get him. I could've told you that."

Ramsey was always going to command a steep price. It was the Rams who stepped up with an offer the Jaguars couldn’t refuse. That leaves other teams around the NFL wondering what could have been.
