Report: Friday “likely target date” for Jalen Ramsey trade

Cornerback Jalen Ramsey would like to be playing for a team other than the Jaguars, but it appears he’ll be a member of the team for at least one more game.

The Jaguars are playing the Titans on Thursday night and it doesn’t look like Jacksonville is going to make a deal to send Ramsey elsewhere before that game gets underway. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Friday is the “likely target date” to get a deal involving Ramsey done.

Word on Tuesday was that the Jaguars are looking for two first-round picks in exchange for the 2016 first-round pick. Any team trading for Ramsey will also likely be talking to the cornerback about a new contract and the need to get that deal done could impact the kind of package that Jacksonville would get in a trade.

A Ramsey injury would also impact any potential trade talks, so we’ll see how the Jaguars handle playing him against Tennessee if they are intending to make a deal happen on Friday.

  1. What a loser franchise. A true lock down corner and plays hard everyday and you don’t even him a second contract. He could have held out but didn’t. The Jaguars do not deserve him

  2. I dnt understand how teams who so desperately wants to rid themselves of “disgruntled” players actually think they would get so much in return. If you want to trade a cancer or headache why ask for so much in return. Not doubting his talent but 2 1st rd picks. I mean 1 is understandable but teams are going to think twice, which could take too long and leave you stuck for another year.

    Can a player play on Thursday, be traded Friday, and play on Sunday? Just curious.

    Was just thinking about that but even if the NFL allowed it (which I doubt they do) I really doubt that any team would do that to their new prized CB that they gave up at least a 1st round pick for.

  4. Amazing to see all these players just suddenly deciding to stop playing for a team, and teams going along with it.

    I have the feeling that the teams are saying “fine” now, but planning to make addressing this a part of the new CBA. As in, we’ll guarantee contracts but you are going to be held to them.

  5. Ramsey’s cap hit this year is $7.4M (a team trading for him I assume would be responsible for 13/16ths of that amount) and $13.7M next year. Not exactly big cap hits relative to how good Ramsey is. So what’s a lock-down press man corner (no one covers D-Hopkins as good as he does) with whom you have two years to negotiate a longer term deal (never mind franchising rights) worth? If I’m Jacksonville, they should demand a lot. The Texans (altho not exactly the brightest folks) gave up two #1’s and a 2nd for Tunsil whom also had two years left on his contract. To me a stud LT and a shut down CB are worth very similar. The Jags should be asking for what the Phins got for Tunsil, maybe there’s another team as dumb as the Texans.

  6. “Can a player play on Thursday, be traded Friday, and play on Sunday? ”

    I don’t think that has ever come up before.

    I doubt very much anyone had the foresight to consider the possibility and write in something regarding it in the CBA. So I will guess and say, yes he can assuming the player would go along with it, which is doubtful.

  7. This guy isn’t the second-coming of Neon Deion or Lester Hayes! He’s the jerk in the middle of the party that’s talking 35db too loud. It’s all about ” ME “, not the team. Get what you can for him & get him ( and his brink’s truck ) outta Jax!

  8. If the Jags wanted to trade him, they would not have let him do that press conference. He sounded like a 15 year old. Every NFL Team had to have questioned a trade after that bonkers press conference.

  9. LOL

    You’re not getting 2 1st rd picks and your fake deadline doesn’t fool anyone.

    This is like when Pitt gave Leveon Bell a deadline with no leverage. When you create the monster, you have no leverage.

  10. So if the Patriots stepped up and gave them what they wanted, and ended up signing him how long before there’s a story about something bad about this guy coming out? A week? A day or two? If he signs ANYWHERE else no problem, but if he ends up in New England he’ll be tied to something bad within 3 days….Oh it’s coming folks get your popcorn ready

  11. I hear the Redskins are sending a Brinks truck down to Jacksonville with Trent Williams in the back and Norman riding shotgun … I’m mean we can dream right ?

    ………………………………………………………………………….
    If it were this easy, 8-12 teams would be lined up to give away 2 #1 picks. The whole reason Ramsey is throwing a Beckham is because he wants a new deal like…..right now. So giving up 2-3 picks then having to sign him to a 100 million deal really isn’t a smart play since the guy is a hothead along with the fact that teams atleast like to get some rookie years out of a talent like this to justify having to pay him that massive second contract. It’s buying high on both ends by trading for him now.

  13. Anyone who thinks Mayock and Gruden wants to deal with another diva after this Brown ordeal they are completely wrong.

  14. Players under contract, contract and now he wants wants and more wants. The NFL poster children have arrived.

  15. Jags, you really wanna screw Ramsey?

    Send him to Miami. The Dolphins could really use a CB. The Dolphins will not be good next year – take their second rounder, it will certainly be high.

    I can only dream…

    Yes. There isn’t any reason why not. Physical considerations aside.

    There’s nothing in the current CBA preventing fully guaranteed contracts.

  18. One round 1 pick if you’re also going to have to give the guy a huge deal immediately. 2 if you can get 2-3 years on their current deal AND they aren’t a PITA

  19. They aren’t going to get two first-round picks. Whoever trades for him better be ready to make him the highest paid CB in the league. I can’t even imagine how much of a cancer he’s going to become after they’ve given all that money. He’ll go back to calling everyone trash and yapping it up like he did last year. Pass.
