Jalen Ramsey’s trade request “still stands”

Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey may not be practicing or playing for his current team this week, but he has fulfilled his obligation to Uninterrupted’s 17 Weeks podcast on SiriusXM and Pandora.

Ramsey made it clear during this week’s episode that he still wants out of Jacksonville.

“[M]y trade request still stands,” Ramsey said. “For me respect is a huge thing. I kind of touched on it a little bit last week in last week’s podcast but once respect is lost for both parties I think it is time to part ways. I’m going to continue being a top corner in this league for years to come. The money will come, but money isn’t everything. Peace and happiness means a lot more than the money.”

Ramsey also responded to speculation that he was faking an illness on Monday to avoid showing up for work in a workplace he’d like to leave for good. (The clips distributed by SiriusXM include no reference to his back injury that caused him to miss practice on Wednesday, or coach Doug Marrone’s non-straight-face reaction to questions on these topics.)

“Was truly sick,” he said. “Had the flu, was throwing up. Threw up at least four times, had the sh-ts, had to go to the doctor, had to get IVs, had to take all type of medicine and eat chicken noodle soup, do all the remedies that I could do. So that wasn’t fake as people may think. I don’t know, people can get a mixed view or a screwed view on the players or the organization or whoever during tough times like this. That’s why I’ve tried to keep it all positive even in my press conferences, on this podcast try to keep it all positive and just give a little insight. And so I’m going to keep it that way. Just because people are thinking this or that, they can think what they want to think and be miserable on their own time. I’m gonna keep it all positive, man. It’s only positive vibes and positive energy all 2019.”

Except for, you know, demanding a trade during the 2019 season.

The Jaguars continue to be unwilling to trade Ramsey, and his options until the team changes its position are simple: Play for the Jaguars or play for no one.

    Mark Davis will take care of you son!!!

    He did such a great job with AB!!!

  2. Every time this guy opens his mouth, which is a lot, I like him less, an+ wouldn’t want my team to touch him with a ten foot pole…

  3. Respect is a huge thing to him? Where was the respect when he was yelling at his coach because he didn’t challenge that play? Money isn’t everything? Really? What about showing up with the Brinks truck? This guy is on the way to becoming AB 2.0.

  4. Hopefully Tom Coughlin gives him a dose of tough love and makes him sit for the rest of the season. It won’t cost him more than rookie contract money. Besides, Minshew Mania is in full bloom. Nobody will care about Jalen if they are winning.

  5. The Jags are screwed. Ultimately they are going to have to trade him but no one is going to give them two 1st round picks. The absolute best they can hope for now is a 1st and a 3rd not necessarily in the same draft.

  6. A team will do what is in their best interest and do it at any players expense or detriment. A player doing the same gets criticized. The real question is when will the Jags realize cutting their losses in their best interest? Pittsburgh did it and they look very smart now taking whatever they could get.

  7. Jalen Ramsey is a Florida kid. He went to Florida State. I’m thinking a Florida based team would be ideal for him. Granted Miami is far worse off than Jacksonville. Bot Jacksonville and Tampa Bay are still trying to climb up the NFL hill.

    So what makes a Florida kid want out? Bad management, bad HC, bad DC and position coach? That’s a good possibility. Nothing sours a player more than a coach you can’t find common ground with.
    The other possibility is another team has let it be known that they are interested in Ramsey. That could be from his agent, another player, or another team itself.

    There is something going on behind the scenes in Jacksonville. It clear Ramsey wants out for whatever reason. That reason isn’t clear yet.

  8. As a Jag fan I can say the majority of Jag fans want him gone. He screams about being disrespected but has done nothing but disrespect our team coaches city and other teams QBs in the league. Anybody who wants the loud mouth attention seeking cry baby can have him. He is AB 2.0 and will be watching on Sundays with AB if he doesn’t watch out. Besides he is good he’s not that good, he gets burned often and blames it on anything he can. Perfect candidate for the revamped XFL. Hey Jalen, GTFOH!

  9. This guy feels like a cheatin’ Pat in every way.
    Oh i’m sure before long coach hoodie is on line one trying to swing a deal to bring him to the Patriots if he’s not already.

    Really sick of this guy and his drama. Seriously hoping the Chiefs aren’t considering acquiring him.

    They need him though. Pretty badly. Their regular season is all set, but in the post season that wall they cant get over will still be there waiting for them. So any boost they can get will matter a lot.

    He’s from Nashville, he’s not a Florida kid, and he wants to compete on a winning team. The culture in Jacksonville is unhealthy as we’ve all seen, and he doesn’t want to be part of a clown show in the prime of his career. Coughlin’s inability to adjust to the times has hurt the organization and it’s being proven now.
