A Ramsey trade is evident. Last week, Jacksonville Jaguars Ramsey All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey asked the team to trade him. This was after a sideline outburst with head coach Doug Marrone. The incident was caught on camera. At the time, the Jaguars began to take calls from teams that were interested in the cornerback.
On Sunday, reports emerged out of Jacksonville that the team was no longer actively looking to trade the cornerback. A day after the reports came out, Jaguars Ramsey missed the team’s scheduled practice on Monday. Calling in to tell his coaches he was sick.
For his part, Marrone tried to deflect questions about the team’s plans to trade Ramsey and took his excuse at face value, for instance.
“I mean, I’m not getting into that — odd or anything,” Marrone said. “If you’re sick, you’re sick, right? What are you going to do?”
“A player missing practice with an illness has happened — I don’t want to exaggerate and say hundreds of times, but it’s happened quite a bit,” Marrone said. “Happened here since I’ve been the head coach a couple times. Also, it’s happened with Myles Jack, where I actually was in the team hotel with him and he stayed there. It’s happened.
Jaguars Ramsey Trade Coming Soon
“To me, it’s nothing as big, but I understand that’s probably a big story because of the other things that are surrounding it.”
Since the team was unable to find a trade partner for Ramsey before their game on Thursday, the team played the cornerback in their win over the Tennessee Titans. Also, will likely play him again this week if the reports that they are no longer trying to make a Ramsey trade are true.
For his part, Jaguars Ramsey told reporters that it was something someone in the front office said to him that made him request a trade because he felt he was disrespected.
“Some disrespectful things were said on their end that made me definitely walk out. Also, call my agent as soon as I walked out, and I told him, I said, ‘It’s time; my time is up here in Jacksonville. I want to ask for a trade,'” Ramsey said.
