Jalen Ramsey started off the 2018 season by blasting nearly every opposing quarterback he could think of. He won’t be doing it again this year.
The Jacksonville Jaguar cornerback was asked somewhat tongue-in-cheek on The Adam Schefter Podcast if he had any thoughts on his rival quarterbacks, and Ramsey wasn’t going to do that again.
“You want to do this again, huh?” Ramsey said, via Kevin Patra of NFL.com. “I’m not going to do this again but, we do play some good quarterbacks this year, of course, but probably the quarterback I’m most excited for is Nick Foles. I don’t have to play against him, of course. He is my teammate. He is a great teammate, the few interactions we’ve had has been great. Great man, great player as well. He has nothing to prove to anybody. He’s a Super Bowl champion, Super Bowl MVP. So, I hope he comes out here and he plays free and knows he has the support of everybody.”
Ramsey said it comes as part of his growth as a player four years into his NFL career.
“I’m growing man, it’s year four for me,” Ramsey said. “It’s a different me. A lot of people think they know me, they don’t really know me. But hey, that’s ok.”
Ramsey unleashed a barrage of bulletin board material before the start of last season about all sorts of different quarterbacks. The Jaguars subsequently went 5-11. Maybe that helped dissuade him from doing it again, but either way, he’s learned a lesson.
