Jalen Ramsey and the Jaguars are having much difference since the last few days and the cornerback has even missed the last three games. Ramsey has been making one or the other excuses and is also absent from the practice sessions with the team. While the Jacksonville Jaguars have been back in form with Gardner Minshew, they still need Ramsey in the Week 6 game against the New Orleans Saints.
I tweeted the homie Jalen Ramsey i needed him to play this weekend in hopes of seeing a Ramsey-Thomas, i think he saw my tweet because he returned to practice & that makes me as a fan extremely happy 😃

The Jaguars have been somehow refusing every trade deal for the All-Pro corner and have no intention to sell him out. But Ramsey has been so reluctant, the Jags owner Shad Khan himself has to convince him by offering more money to play for the teams in the rest of the 2019 NFL season games.
Jaguars Owner Shad Khan on Jalen Ramsey
The Jaguars side and Jalen Ramsey have not reached any kind of mutual agreement but rumors suggest that the star cornerback will play this weekend in the Saints game. Shad Khan, the Jaguars owner was asked about the status of Ramsey playing in week six and here is what he replied.
Well, I think Jalen Ramsey will play this week when you open the New Orleans Saints game. But at the same time, you have to balance what’s good for the team and what the individual wishes are. I met with Ramsey a few days ago and had a person heart to heart conversation with him. I think we have reached a solution which makes sense of all of us.

Jalen Ramsey Knows his Worth
Even though it doesn’t confirm anything, but it strongly hints that Jalen Ramsey will play on Sunday. There are not many chances that Ramsey moves back and the Jaguars will mostly like change their stance on him. Ramsey would either be paid more or sent to such an NFL team which he doesn’t like and comes back to the Jaguars.

Eagles, Chiefs, Ravens, and other teams have made big offers for Ramsey, but Shad Khan has rejected them all. Jalen Ramsey is an All-Pro, ACC champion, PFWA All-Rookie Team member and he would most likely want a bigger salary before the trade deadline.
