During the offseason, Jalen Ramsey did an interview with GQ Magazine and trashed about every single quarterback in the league in a spirited conversation. The jags would go on to win five games in 2018.
After a bad year and not receiving the contract that he wanted from the franchise, Jalen Ramsey has apparently been humbled because when asked by Adam Schefter to critique the slate of passers the Jaguars will face in 2019, the All-Pro cornerback passed on the opportunity.
“You want to do this again, huh?,” Ramsey said.
“I’m not going to do this again,” Ramsey told Schefter on the latest episode of his podcast. “But probably the quarterback I’m most excited about is Nick Foles. I don’t have to play against him, of course. He is my teammate. He is a great teammate. The interactions we’ve had have been great. Great man, great player as well. Has nothing to prove to anybody. He’s a Super Bowl champion — Super Bowl MVP. So I hope he comes out here and plays free [and] knows he has the support of everybody.”
Ramsey is known for talking trash and speaking his mind and he has accepted that he can’t make everyone happy.
“They can form opinions on how this year goes or whatever on the field. But I am human just like them, everybody’s human,” he said. “I think [Golden State Warriors center] DeMarcus Cousins recently said it in an interview, we’re looked at a bunch of times as superstar athletes and that’s how we are looked at but at the same time we’re also humans. That goes for myself and my teammates.
“Yeah, this is our profession, this is our job, were going to go out there and give it our all. If we don’t do good, or if we do good, we know we’ll be criticized or praised. At the end of the day, we’re all humans. I’m a dad, I get spit up on just like all the other dads out here, change diapers, it’s not different, it’s not special for me.”
