The trade market for Jalen Ramsey is heating up. The disgruntled Jaguars cornerback has made his feelings known and he wants out of Jacksonville. The Raiders could use the services of a young All Pro cornerback and according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, they are among teams which have made “substantive inquiries” about trading for him.
I'm told Jalen Ramsey is fine playing TNF tonight, but a source just told me he doesn't anticipate being a member of the #Jags next Sun. Teams like KC, BAL, MIN, OAK, PHI, SEA hv all made substantive inquiries, but my understanding is almost every team has at least placed a call.— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) September 19, 2019
Of these teams, the Chiefs and Raiders were given the highest odds of landing the All Pro cornerback. The Jaguars are said to be looking for a couple first round picks. The Raiders will have two first round picks in 2020, though I highly doubt they give up both of them for Ramsey.
Earlier this week reports were at very least the Raiders had checked in on the situation, which Anderson notes nearly every team in the NFL has. But clearly at this point, they have made more than just a phone call.
Anderson added that Ramsey expects to be traded by next week. As it happens, Ramsey is set to take the field tonight when the Jaguars take on the Tennessee Titans.
