The Jacksonville Jaguars have responded to an ESPN report put out by Adam Schefter saying the team was thought to be in the market to trade Jalen Ramsey this offseason.
“The Jaguars have zero intention of trading CB Jalen Ramsey. There is no truth to this rumor.”
Here was the full Schefter quote, thanks to John Shipley of The Palatka Daily News.
“Every offseason we get a player whose name comes up in trade talks that surprises you. And the belief around the league this offseason is that Jalen Ramsey could be sent packing. Now again, his contract is in a situation where the Jaguars either have to make him the highest paid cornerback in the game or they’re going to have to move on. Jalen Ramsey himself has tweeted about the fact that ‘you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone’ and this season has not worked out the way the Jaguars liked. There are multiple executives who think that Ramsey could be shopped this offseason.”
So that’s that. I hope you all had a fun morning.
