The Jacksonville Jaguars have likely shot themselves in the foot.
The Jags picked up Jalen Ramsey’s fifth-year option, which puts him under contract through the 2020 season but the team will have a decision to make after that.
Unfortunately for them, that decision might be a costly one.
On Instagram, the Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback spoke with teammate Leonard Fournette and made it clear that he wouldn’t be giving any hometown discounts to his current club after they didn’t give him a contract this offseason.
“Next year, especially after I ball, they’re going to come to me ‘Hey, you know, we want to holler at you,” Ramsey said, and then whistles. “That number is going to be so ungodly. … They’re going to say, ‘Oh god, can’t we get a little discount, 20 percent off?’”
Ramsey stated that if the team would’ve offered an extension this off-season, there was a possibility of a discount, but because the team didn’t want to do that, he is expecting a full payday next year.
“I’m going to tell them last year you could have gotten that discount,” Ramsey said. “This year, (more head shakes). I’m going to need all of that.”
Ramsey enters the fourth year of his rookie deal, set to earn $3.634 million in base salary.
