Jalen Ramsey Rumor Roundup – Are the Eagles in the Mix?

Kevin Jairaj - USA Today Sports

Jalen Ramsey is expected to play tonight against the Tennessee Titans, according to Jags head coach Doug Marrone.

But what if he doesn’t?

What if Doug Marrone is bullshitting us? Is Ramsey on the trade block? Are the Eagles in the mix?

Wednesday morning, Adam “Schefty” Schefter went on the 97.5 the Fanatic morning show and said this:

I think the Eagles always check on everybody. And if there’s a player available, they will always test the market, see what the price is, and then obviously act accordingly. And there are a lot of trades they pull off.

This particular case, there’s a lot to consider. I’m sure there’s some level of interest in Jalen Ramsey. The question is are you going to compensate Jacksonville and compensate the player. The player is going to be an exorbitant price when he gets that new contract. And you can make the argument that he’s the fastest cornerback in football. The Jaguars have been asking for two first round draft picks. Now, they’re not gonna get two first round draft picks in the end, period. It’s just not gonna happen. They’re gonna get less than that. You can come up with a a package, a one and a four, a one and a five, a one and a player, you can figure out what it is and then it will be up to that team to decide whether they want to pull the trigger. You’re gonna ask me if the Eagles can get this done. They can do anything they wanna do. The question is do you want to pay that steep of a price.

Schefter went on to say that he feels like the “deal would have been done by now” if someone had risen to meet Jacksonville’s asking price. He also said he didn’t think involving Zach Ertz in a possible Ramsey trade would make sense.

Would you do this, however…

  • first round pick
  • fourth round pick
  • Dallas Goedert

…for Jalen Ramsey? I would. Absolutely. That was a scenario being tossed around by Ike Reese and Jon Marks on 94 WIP yesterday afternoon.

Schefter also tweeted this on Thursday morning:

 

Would be pretty crazy for Ramsey to play tonight and then suit up for the Eagles on Sunday, but I’d dig it.

Anyway, later on Wednesday, NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora said this:

Jalen Ramsey to the Chiefs? That would be something else. Maybe he finally helps Big Red get over the hump out there in KC.

Ramsey, FYI, is in the fourth year of his rookie deal, so he’s making $3.7 million this year and set to earn $13 million next season before becoming a free agent. The highest paid corners in the NFL based on AAV are currently Xavien Howard, Josh Norman, and the recently benched Trumaine Johnson, who earn about $15 million a year. The Eagles are projected to have three players earning more than that in 2020, which is the group of Fletcher Cox, Carson Wentz, and Alshon Jeffery.

Last word goes to Ian Rapoport:

    Any sane fan would tell you, Ertz is moved before DG, look at next years cap numbers for the 2 and compare them..

    Then remember back to games last year against Jacksonville and Dallas (even though it was called back) DG, should way more big-play, RAC ability then Ertz ever has.

    Does this team need help at DB? Yes
    Were they bad the first two weeks? Yes

    This team is a Nelson Agholor catch that hit him in the hands away from being 2-0.
    If this team was 2-0 is this conversation happening? No

    There is no pass rush from this line, you could have Deion Sanders and Eric Allen out there if the QB has time recievers get open, regardless of the coverage.

    This trade is based on a notion that he is a shutdown corner and that you want to sell your future for a guy who is going to want to be top paid DB in league, with all these other High end salaries. Any scenerio to bring this diva in here is a bad one.

    2 Final Points

    1–You could, I dunno run the ball more so your D is not on the field as much?
    2–Save your draft picks for the future as you should go look at this teams cap situation for the next 4 years!

      Anyone that pays even a little bit of attention knows the cap can be worked and massaged however is needed to make any salary fit, by anyone, especially a nerd like Howie.

      A lot of your other points are pretty good though, namely running the ball more …

    No way the QB’s lover, Ertz, is traded. The “Greatest Quarterback in Eagles History” who is 6-17 vs. teams over .500 and who after three seasons has yet to appear in a playoff game let a one win one, will never let his bestest buddy and his security blanket go. And he’s the one running this team.

    According to Doug Pederson Dallas Goedert is the most valuable player on the team. Isn’t his excuse for losing Sunday that once Goedert went down the Eagles basically had to set fire to their playbook on the sideline and just wing it for the rest of the game? I don’t see any deal getting done that will cost Wentz his sole reason for living (Ertz) or the key to the Eagles entire offense (Goedert).

      You are correct ..he did saying losing Goddert really hurt …I think he mentioned Jefferey, and Desean too but who lets facts get in the way of a good point.

    “This team is a Nelson Agholor catch that hit him in the hands away from being 2-0.
    If this team was 2-0 is this conversation happening? No”

    Apparently everyone ignores the two Atlanta Falcons closing in on Nelson that could easily have pushed him out of bounds five yards after that catch.

    You know the Falcons were just one Matt Ryan not being a bonehead play away from blowing that game wide open, right?

    Woulda, shoulda, coulda every team in the NFL not named the Dolphins, Jets or Giants can make up reasons why their team’s record should be better than it is. You are what your record says it is to use a cliche.

    Say Nelson does make it to the end zone, Atlanta gets the ball back and Jones burns the corners for a huge walk off touchdown. It could have happened. Just as likely as the Eagles holding on to win.

    Christ, you Wentz suck ups act like he hit Algholor right between the numbers wide open in the middle of the end zone in OT.
