Finally, the Jalen Ramsey saga in Jacksonville has reached its conclusion.
The Jaguars traded the former first round pick and ex-Brentwood Academy standout to the Los Angeles Rams for first-round picks in 2020 and 2021 and a fourth rounder in 2021.
Los Angeles placed cornerback Aqib Talib on injured reserve on Monday, then traded cornerback Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens. So, Ramsey will presumably play an integral role in the Rams secondary right away.
Ramsey was linked to the Tennessee Titans as trade rumors swirled, but Tennessee reportedly balked at the Jaguars’ asking price of multiple first-round picks. Jaguars owner Shad Khan had been publicly stating he had no desire to trade the Pro Bowl defensive back.
Ramsey asked to be traded after he and Jacksonville head coach Doug Marrone got into a sideline scuffle during Jacksonville’s Week 2 loss to the Houston Texans. Ramsey played the following week against the Titans but missed the last three games due to a reported back injury.
In three games this season, Ramsey has 17 total tackles, a forced fumble and one pass defensed. The 24-year-old has nine career interceptions and 210 tackles.
