Jaguars exercise Jalen Ramsey’s fifth-year option

Jaguars executive vice president Tom Coughlin is upset that cornerback Jalen Ramsey isn’t with the team for their offseason workouts, but that doesn’t mean that the team is looking forward to a future without him.

The Jaguars formally exercised their 2020 option on Ramsey’s contract on Thursday. The move came a few hours ahead of the start of the first round of the draft and just ahead of the three-year anniversary of Jacksonville taking Ramsey with the fifth overall pick of the 2016 draft.

Exercising Ramsey’s option was never in doubt for the Jaguars. While he’s made some waves with his mouth and his offseason workout choices, he also quickly established himself as a top cornerback and has not missed a game over his three seasons with the team.

Ramsey said late last year that he is ready to start talking about a long-term contract with the Jaguars and Thursday’s move buys some more time to work one out before free agency would enter the picture.

  1. Right, but this has no bearing on his whining on an extension and landmark deal where he’ll want 15 mil per.

    I would very quietly try to trade him now for a 2nd rd pick.

  2. I’m not surprised to see the Patriots fanboy stick in his 2 cents …yet again. Jalen for a 2nd is close to the dumbest thing I’ve ever read on PFT, and that’s saying something.

    Season tickets since ’78. Far from a fanboy.

    Why am I always right then? 2 years go by and what I predicted is exactly what happens. It’s hilarious.

    Ramsey is overrated, immature, a cancer and not a leader. Giving someone like that is suicide. You’re better off drafting a CB that WON’T be like him and saving all the money to put elsewhere on the roster.

    You probably said trading LeVeon Bell quietly 3 years ago or trading Beckham was dumb, too.

    The fact is, kidlings like yourself that run your mouth while showing you don’t why NE is never in cap hell and why BB is the greatest teambuilder of any sport all time, show you don’t get it.

    Fact is, every AFC team that continues to make really stupid moves and non-moves, means the Pats have better odds to keep winning SBs.

    75% of winning in this league is teambuilding and not going into a cap hell which includes ridding teams of cancers.

  4. Immediately after he signed he did another GQ interview where he called everyone else in the NFL trash.

  5. Good player but the Jaguars might be better off letting someone else pay his 2nd contract
