Myles Jack “kind of sad” to see Jalen Ramsey traded

When Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone spoke to the media on Wednesday, he said that no Jaguars players had come to him to say that the Jalen Ramsey situation was a distraction before Ramsey was traded to the Rams on Tuesday.

Marrone also wished Ramsey well with the Rams and professed a desire to move forward now that the matter has been resolved. Those were also the kinds of messages being sent by Jaguars players on Wednesday.

Defensive tackle Abry Jones said Ramsey’s former teammates “appreciate everything you did for us” and respected his wishes to move on in a trade. Cornerback DJ Hayden said the Jags are “still going to play football” while linebacker Myles Jack said he had been holding out hope that things could be resolved.

“I didn’t want to see him go,” Jack said, via Jacksonville.com. “I liked it that he was here if that makes sense. It wasn’t a distraction to us. As long as he was in the locker room, he was still part of the team. You can ask anyone in the locker room that we would much rather play with Jalen than not have him here. But that was a situation between him and the front office and it had to be resolved. But if I was a betting man, I’d figured we would have kept him here until after the deadline and somebody would have had to budge. To see him go, it was kind of sad.”

There was no sadness from Ramsey in his first appearance at the Rams’ facility and the Jaguars have a few more days to adjust to life without the cornerback before facing the Bengals.

  1. What do those first round picks mean if its Justin Blackmon and Blaine Gabbert.

    Enjoy London, Shahid Khan’d you all.

  2. Yea it wasn’t a distraction only wondering if he was going to practice and play every week so no everything was cool. I hear he is the best CB in the league. I know when I played sports growing up when the best player was not sure if he was going to play or not, I was fine with that. Oh wait no i wasn’t . I didn’t care how good the guy was, I wouldn’t want him on my team but of course back when i played it was about winning. Not like pro sports is now for some players.

  3. The idea of grown men being distracted by another grown man’s decision in a league of alpha dogs just doesn’t sound very realistic. Relationships built in the locker room are much different than what people think.

    I’d have thought the same. Then, within a span of 8 or fewer months, Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown changed my mind.

  5. Ramsey abandoned his teammates: the idea that they were/are cool with it is crazytalk.

  6. Not a Jags fan, but a FL native. Give the Jaguars to London bit a rest. It’s NOT going to happen.

    Khan wouldn’t have put as much money as he has into the stadium and surrounding development if his intentions were to relocate.

  7. While probably not a locker room cancer at all, and not necessarily a bad person, Jalen played a ‘cat and mouse’ game with the Jags to get traded. He refused to play when healthy and flat out lied about an injury. He went to see a division opponent play during this faked injury to congratulate and party with him. He liked a tweet showing his own QB getting creamed and mocked. He flew out to LA after claiming he was sick. He told the owner he would play and didn’t. He’s fought with teammates at practice. He was making a mockery of the Jags, and now he’ll have to eat about 28% more of his salary in taxes. He’s not getting a new deal there, either. Try the Brinks truck again there.

    ==

    First, like you’ve ever been in an NFL locker room.
    Second, it isn’t what the other guy does that becomes a distraction. It’s having countless media outlets continually asking about what the other guy did that becomes the distraction.

  9. That “kinda sad” comment could be taken several different ways.
    It was a sad situation created by jalen and only jalen.
