Jalen Ramsey has made it clear that he wants out of Jacksonville, but the Jaguars do not appear as if they are going to let that happen.

Despite the Pro Bowl corner’s request to be traded last week, the Jaguars are not interested in dealing Ramsey, and if they were, it would have already been done by now, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.  

Ramsey requested a trade last week after he said he felt disrespected by the organization, which also followed a sideline confrontation with head coach Doug Marrone.

The Jaguars were reportedly looking for at least a first-round pick in return. The Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs were believed to be among three interested teams in Ramsey.

The 24-year-old played in Thursday’s game against the Tennessee Titans, and on Friday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Jaguars owner Shad Kahn was willing to make Ramsey the highest-paid cornerback in the league.

Ramsey, the fifth-overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, has made it no secret he wants a big contract. The cornerback arrived in training camp this summer with a brinks truck as a signal that he wants to be paid.

The Jaguars return to practice on Monday and how Ramsey responds could be indicative of his future in Jacksonville.

If Ramsey shows up to practice, it would likely signal that Ramsey will comply with whatever the team wants to do with him. If he does not show up, things then get interesting as Ramsey will force the Jaguars’ hand to either trade him or pay him.

Ramsey has 14 tackles and no interceptions this season.
