Philadelphia Eagles are trying everything they can to get Jalen Ramsey from the Jacksonville Jaguars but the trade deal is still not made. The Jaguars don’t want to move Ramsey out as he is crucial to their team but the cornerback won’t play with the team anymore.
Everyone thought that the issue has been sorted out after the Jags owner Shad Khan himself confirmed that Ramsey will play in Week 6 game against the Saints.
Even though Jaguars’ owner Shad Khan said he expected Jalen Ramsey to play today, he will not. Ramsey is inactive. Again.
Oct. 29 trade deadline looms….

But nothing of that sort happened as Ramsey even missed the game because of an alleged back injury and the Jaguars lost the game badly at 6-13. It looks like the Eagles have made a secret trade deal with the Jaguars for Jalen Ramsey and an official announcement will be made in the October deadline.
Shad Khan doesn’t want Ramsey to Leave the Jaguars
The Jaguars coach and general manager are in favor of Jalen Ramsey going to some other NFL team and getting a high package of future draft picks in exchange. But the Jacksonville NFL club owner Shad Khan is too egoistic to let Ramsey leave. Khan doesn’t want the world to see that an NFL player can force him to make a trade deal.
It is why despite getting an offer of two first-round picks for Ramsey, the Jaguars side still said no to the deal. The standoff between Khan and Ramsey continues, meanwhile the team management who is concerned about the team performance is making amends to get back in the league scorecard.
Jalen Ramsey Trade Deal with Eagles
NFL trade deadline of October 29 is barely two weeks away and the Eagles are getting desperate to have Jalen Ramsey in their team. The Eagles losing at 20-38 to the Vikings shows how much they need a strong cornerback in their defense and they can’t afford to lose more games as there are still two matches left before the deadline.
If the #Eagles don’t trade for Jalen Ramsey, what in their recent draft history suggests they can draft a quality cornerback?

Go get one, @Eagles

The Jaguars side other than Shad Khan understands the delicacy of the situation and would somehow make the Ramsey trade deal happen near the deadline. The trick is to convince Khan that holding on to Ramsey is bad for business and they need to let him sign a deal with the Eagles so they can make some big trades in the NFL 2020 draft deals.
