Jalen Ramsey would hit his grandmother on the field, to respect the game

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at New York Giants Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey has so much respect for the game of football that if his grandmother made a catch over the middle he’d light her up. No, really. It doesn’t matter who is on the other side, he will light you up.

“I feel like to respect the game you have to play it fierce. I don’t believe in having friends on the field. I mean if my brother, my dad, my mom my grandmother was out there it’s on. After the game we can be cool, it doesn’t matter,” Ramsey told reporters on Thursday afternoon. “That’s how I feel you have to respect the game of football. Football is not a game meant to be played being nice to each other and all that, like kumbaya.”

“Nah, I definitely would. She know that,” Ramsey said with a laugh when asked if he really would hit his grandmother. “My grandma know that, I love you but you know that.”

It’s about respect.
