Report: Jaguars turned down two first-round picks for Jalen Ramsey
The Jacksonville Jaguars have yet to trade Jalen Ramsey despite interest from numerous teams, and that may have more to do with them not wanting to part ways with the star cornerback than an unwillingness to meet their asking price.
The Jaguars turned down an offer from one team that included two first-round picks, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. The offer reportedly came from a good team, as the Jags were concerned the two picks would end up close to the end of the first round.
Jacksonville has been giving teams the impression that they intend to keep Ramsey, though the situation does not appear to be getting any better. Ramsey missed practice for a variety of reasons this week, and La Canfora reports that team officials were “irked” when he did not show up to work because of an illness.
Ramsey is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos because of a back injury — one that head coach Doug Marrone said he had no idea how or when Ramsey suffered.
There is still a belief that Ramsey will be traded, and he spoke publicly on Thursday about the lack of respect between him and the team. The Jaguars should be able to get two first-round picks for him if and when they decide to grant his wish.
