Sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter the Jacksonville Jaguars traded the cornerback to the L.A. Rams in exchange for two first-round picks in 2020 and 2021, as well as a fourth-round pick in 2021. The move was reported just hours after the Rams traded Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens for linebacker Kenny Young and "an undisclosed 2020 draft pick." The team had also placed CB Aqib Talib on injured reserves Tuesday.
Jalen Ramsey didn’t miss a paycheck....and got what he wanted.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 15, 2019
Jacksonville gets back a haul of picks.
Rams get the best CB in the game.
Ramsey pretty much confirmed the trade via Twitter on Tuesday, sharing a photo of him rocking the Rams jersey.
Trade rumors have been swirling around Ramsey since 2018; however, the Jaguars PR director Tad Dickman tweeted last fall that the team had "zero intention of trading" the All-Pro CB. Fast-forward to the Jaguars' game against the Houston Texans last month, when Ramsey was spotted on the sideline getting into a heated argument with head coach Doug Marrone.
A day after Jacksonville's 13-12 loss to Houston, Schefter reported Ramsey had asked to be traded. Ramsey denied leaking that request.
"Let's be clear about something," Ramsey told reporters. "... I didn't leak that information. Me and my agent, we are not the ones who leaked that information." He also said that his main focus is winning, whether that's on the Jags or somewhere else. "All I care about is winning man, shit," Ramsey added. "Everybody knows that. I want to f**king win."
