Jags deny Ramsey trade report

Updated: 18-11-2018 23:29 IST

The Jacksonville Jaguars issued a statement denying a Sunday report that they are likely to trade star defensive back Jalen Ramsey in the offseason.

"The Jacksonville Jaguars have zero intention of trading CB Jalen Ramsey," the statement read. "There is no truth to this rumor."

The statement was in response to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, citing a league source and an NFL general manager, that said the Jaguars would be forced to consider trading the outspoken Ramsey.

Ramsey offended some Jaguars fans with a tweet earlier this week that said, "When I'm gone from here, y'all gone miss me. I ain't even trippin lol," but he clarified himself on Thursday.

Ramsey said that comment was meant for "fake fans" and said his position with the team and his future hadn't changed.

"I've said multiple times, over and over and over and over and over and over and over again that I want to play for one team my whole career," he said, per the team's website.

Ramsey is in the final year of his rookie contract and the Jaguars hold a fifth-year option.

The Jaguars (3-6) have lost five straight games and face the 6-2-1 Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
