When Jalen Ramsey was a rookie, the Jacksonville Jaguars looked like they were on the cusp of being a Super Bowl contender. They made it to the AFC Championship game.
Since then, things have changed. Now Ramsey would like the team to trade him.
#Jaguars star CB Jalen Ramsey reported to the facility as usual this morning, sources say. Team has entertained trade offers at Ramsey’s request, but they’re not moving him unless it’s the right deal. Everyone’s focus on the #Titans on Thursday night.

Jacksonville took the cornerback with the fifth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Florida St. He is currently under contract the remainder of this year plus the 2020 season before hitting free agency. He is owed $3.63 million this season and $13.7 million next season.
It might not be a bad idea for the Jags to explore trade options, given that newly-acquired Nick Foles is out for the foreseeable future and the team is struggling.
With the recent trade of Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Pittsburgh Steelers for a first-round pick, one would assume the Jaguars would get at least the same, if not more, in return for Ramsey.
There are teams interested in trading with the Jacksonville Jaguars for Jalen Ramsey. This is what I am told has been offered so far: a 1st in 2020 & 5th in 2021 from an NFC Team and a 1st in 2020 & a player from an AFC Team
