Jalen Ramsey not trash-talking opposing quarterbacks this offseason

Jalen Ramsey

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.

Jalen Ramsey sends great tweet about his contract situation

Jalen Ramsey has two more years remaining on his rookie contract, and the Pro Bowl cornerback told the media on Tuesday that the Jacksonville Jaguars have informed him he will not be getting an extension this offseason. When you see the tweet he sent, you might understand why.

Shorty after he spoke with reporters, Ramsey took a page out of Deion Sanders’ book when he said he’s going to ask the Jaguars for so much money they’ll have to put him on layaway.

After Sanders was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons with the No. 5 overall pick in 1989, he told the media he was afraid the Detroit Lions were going to take him. He said if they did, well, have a listen…

Ramsey is obviously going to want to be the highest-paid cornerback in football, and you can understand why. However, he really doesn’t have much leverage with two years remaining on his rookie deal. Jaguars executive vice president of football operations Tom Coughlin appeared to call Ramsey out for missing voluntary workouts earlier this offseason, but we can expect him to continue to do that as long as he is playing under his current contract.

Jalen Ramsey’s agent defends CB’s absence from voluntary workouts

Jalen Ramsey’s agent came to his defense Friday after the Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback was called out by team president Tom Coughlin for his absence from voluntary workouts.

While Coughlin did not mention Ramsey by name, the cornerback was one of two Jaguars players absent from the voluntary offseason conditioning program, and the team president made it very clear that he was not at all happy with his absence. This is despite the fact that Ramsey’s father runs a training facility in Nashville, which is where Ramsey spent last season working out.

Ramsey’s agent David Mulugheta made quite clear on Twitter on Friday that the workouts were voluntary, and Ramsey is doing what he needs to do.

It’s another instance of Coughlin’s notoriously old-school mentality clashing with reality. While teams would certainly prefer that all players show up for all offseason programs, the workouts are voluntary for a reason. Ramsey appears to be doing the work he needs to do elsewhere, as his agent notes, and Coughlin just looks bad calling this out publicly.

Jalen Ramsey offers blunt take on Doug Marrone’s job security

Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey offered a quote that might say a lot about why his team is struggling so much.

The Jaguars fell to 4-10 with a stunning home loss to the Washington Redskins, who looked like they might not win another game all season after a dreadful performance against the New York Giants in Week 14. They managed to beat Jacksonville, however, sparking new questions about coach Doug Marrone’s job status.

Ramsey isn’t worried about that. At all, in fact.

Maybe Ramsey likes Marrone just fine, but it’s hardly a ringing endorsement. It also plays right into a narrative developing around Ramsey that he’s becoming better known for his selfish quotes and off-field actions than his on-field performance despite his undoubted talent. That may be why his name may come up in trade chatter this offseason.

Jalen Ramsey roasted for ridiculous flop

Jalen Ramsey flop

Jalen Ramsey was the subject of jokes on social media after the ridiculous flop he committed on Thursday.

During the Tennessee Titans’ 30-9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, Ramsey and Taylor Lewan got in each other’s faces and appeared to exchange words. There was minimal contact between their helmets but Ramsey reacted as if Lewan shoved him with all of his strength.

Afterward, Ramsey was roasted for his reaction to the minimal contact.

We have seen some pretty egregious flops here at LBS. This one might make its way near the top of the list.

Jalen Ramsey punks Andrew Luck with fake helping hand

Jalen Ramsey caught Andrew Luck with one of those old “sike!” moves.

The Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback pretended like he was going to help up the Indianapolis Colts quarterback off the ground after a scramble in the second quarter, but then he quickly pulled back his hand.

Punk move by Ramsey, though not something that should catch any of us by surprise. The Jags cornerback is no fan of quarterbacks throughout the league.

Bills troll Jalen Ramsey on Twitter after beating Jaguars

Jalen Ramsey

Josh Allen got the last laugh against Jalen Ramsey on Sunday after the rookie’s team defeated the player who called him “trash” during the offseason, and the Buffalo Bills were not shy about rubbing the win in Ramsey’s face.

Following Buffalo’s 24-21 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Bills’ official Twitter account dug up an old tweet from Ramsey in which the All-Pro cornerback criticized one of Allen’s throws during training camp. The team noted that Ramsey’s tweet “didn’t age well.”

And that wasn’t all. The Bills also trolled Ramsey for talking trash during Sunday’s game after an interception that ended up being called back due to a penalty.

The Bills didn’t even mention the way Ramsey bashed Allen during an interview with GQ Magazine, but the point was made. The Jaguars have been in a complete tailspin since their 3-1 start, and Buffalo is the latest team to make them look bad. When you talk trash and get beat, that’s what happens.
