According to Jason La Canfora, the Jaguars turned down an offer of two first-round picks from one team to acquire the star cornerback.
The team was said to actually be looking for at-least 2 first round picks, but the report states Jacksonville felt those two picks would be too close to the end of the round.
Despite their unwillingness to send Ramsey off to another team, the disgruntled CB has continued to tell associates he won’t sign a long-term deal in Jacksonville and still wants out.
“You have to trade him,” said a high-ranking official from another club. “It will get worse and there will be something new with him every week. He doesn’t see a future there (in Jacksonville), and he’s already shown he’s willing to rock the boat to get out. At some point it becomes more trouble than it’s worth.”
“Another league source who has been in contact with the Jaguars cautioned not to underestimate owner Shad Khan’s resolve to stand firm and not “reward” Ramsey with a trade. But he too anticipated there to be more drama between the player and the franchise with the fallout already quite public.”
The 24-year-old has appeared in three games for the Jaguars and recorded 18 tackles, a forced fumble and one pass defense so far in the 2019 season.
