Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey: 'My trade demand still stands'

Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey: 'My trade demand still stands'”

Jacksonville Jaguars Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey is not with the team as they prepare for their Week 4 matchup in Denver and if he gets his wish, he won't be with the team in any weeks thereafter.

It is no doubt that Jalen Ramsey is now the best cornerback in National Football League, but no one would risk their future drafts on him where they can sign him in the next free agency.

Following the game, Ramsey said a majority of his teammates knew about his trade request before the news broke on September 16. However, it appears Ramsey's issues are deeper than money and he may feel he can't coexist with Coughlin, who he hasn't seen eye-to-eye with for quite some time.

Ramsey, who is now in Nashville awaiting the birth of his daughter, opened up about is trade request on a recent episode of the Uninterrupted's "17 Weeks" Podcast. "For me, regard is a big thing. Peace and joy implies a lot more than the cash".

Ramsey to leave team for birth of child, will return 'when he's ready'

Ramsey asked for a trade following a confrontation with head coach Doug Marrone during the team's loss to the Houston Texans in Week 2.

The corner, whose rookie deal expires after the 2020 season, played in Jacksonville's Week 3 win over Tennessee after the trade rumors emerged and spoke at length Thursday on the feelings surrounding what might have been his last game in a Jags uniform. He was seen by the team's doctor on Monday after developing what he believed was the flu, then missed Wednesday with a back injury. Frennette was questioning whether Ramsey would use the cover of a family situation to continue to pursue his obvious agenda of getting the Jaguars to relent on their refusal to trade him.

"It's not something to joke around with, but obviously when you say your level of hope [is that Ramsey will return to play], you're hoping that every player is going to play from injury", Marrone said. Marrone chuckled through a series of questions about his star defender and said "his back got tight". Three hours after Marrone said he didn't know when Ramsey suffered the injury, the team released a statement saying Ramsey did report back soreness to the team's medical staff during the fourth quarter of the Titans game.

"Was truly sick", Ramsey said.
