Jalen Ramsey on Tom Coughlin vs. NFLPA: ‘Tried to tell y’all’

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars got in big trouble with the NFL Players Association yesterday and former Jaguars players spent the afternoon drinking a big ol’ glass of I Told You So.

Jalen Ramsey was probably the highest profile player to have a run in with the Jaguars front office, led by Tom Coughlin. It led to a backstage yelling match and him being traded in the middle of a contract season.

Now that the dust has settled and the rest of the league can see that the Jaguars were pinged with 25% of grievances over the past two seasons, the players are not holding back on Twitter.

And then came Dante Fowler, another former first round pick by Jacksonville who was on the outs with this franchise.

While Fowler had his share of off-the-field incidents, Ramsey’s only infraction was yelling at a Florida Times-Union reporter during a practice and then coming at them on Twitter.

It’s embarrassing to see and a huge black mark on Coughlin, who was trying to leave a positive legacy in Jacksonville before retiring. Instead, he’ll forever be known as the man who ruined this franchise twice.
