Jalen Ramsey has taken part in individual drills. It seems like they'll ease him into team work. #Jaguars #teamsideline pic.twitter.com/YFr3Le491o— Mike Kaye (@mike_e_kaye) August 12, 2017
Ramsey underwent core surgery in June near the end of the team’s offseason program. This will be his first appearance at training camp for the Jaguars thus far.
Ramsey started all 16 games in his rookie season last year. He intercepted two passes and returned one for a touchdown and earned All-Rookie honors by the Pro Football Writers Association, Gil Brandt of NFL.com, and Mel Kiper Jr. of ESPN.
Bouye was considered to be the best cornerback on the free agent market, starting 11 games in place of an injured Kevin Johnson last year, allowing only 47.9% of his targets to be completed, and averaging only 10.8 yards per reception. His biggest knock is probably the same as Ramsey’s — lack of interceptions. Bouye had just one interception and 16 defended passes in 2016, and recorded just five interceptions in his three years before that.
Campbell started all 16 games for the second consecutive season and for the fourth time in his career. He recorded 53 tackles, 8.0 sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles, and 12 tackles for a loss. His 8.0 sacks was the best single-season performance since 2013 when he had 9.0 sacks and he helped contribute to the Arizona Cardinals leading the NFL with 48 sacks.
