ESPN’s Adam Schefter said on Sunday that the Jacksonville Jaguars could trade cornerback Jalen Ramsey in the off-season. He said that the team is entertaining offers for the 24-year-old.
However, the team is denying that report.
“The Jacksonville Jaguars have zero intention of trading cornerback Jalen Ramsey,” the Jaguars said in a statement. “There is no truth to this rumor.”
He is slated to have a $2.572 million base salary in 2019, according to Spotrac. He will receive a $3.7 million signing bonus and will have a cap hit of $6.3 million.
He also has a fifth-year option available for the 2020 season.
The outspoken defensive back is one of the best young defensive corners in the league. However, this season, the Jaguars defense has fallen apart. The team has lost five straight games.
The Smyrna, Tennessee native will play on the field with his team against the Pittsburgh Steelers at home. Jacksonville has not won a game since September 30th against the New York Jets in a 31-12 win.
Ramsey was the fifth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. This season, he has made nine starts and has 30 tackles, including a tackle for a loss. He also has an interception and four pass deflections.
In his career, he has started all 41 games. He has 158 tackles, including five tackles for a loss and a quarterback hit. He also has seven interceptions, one forced fumble, and 35 pass deflections.
