Former Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey was traded across the country midway through last season and concluded the 2019 campaign as a member of the Los Angeles Rams.
With Ramsey currently seeking a contract extension from the Rams after attempting to receive a massive payday from the aforementioned Jaguars, Los Angeles general manager Les Snead is now unwilling to talk about such a contract situation.
“I’m going to keep those things in-house,” Snead recently said, via NFL.com and USA TODAY Sports. “But what we are confident in is his ability to help the Rams not only on the playing field, but as you get to know Jalen, he is a very impressive human being. He’s very intelligent, which when you’re an intelligent person and football player, that allows defensive coordinators to get maybe more creative and he’s also someone who’s passionate about winning and passionate about helping the team win whatever way he can. So I do think there’s some intangibles and leadership qualities there, so we’re confident he’s going to help the Rams. The goal is to have him helping us get back to contending for that division for not just the 2020 season, but many seasons to come.”
The Rams are just two seasons removed from an NFC Championship and an appearance in the Super Bowl. However, the Rams have since made some drastic roster changes and were unable to capitalize on the team’s recent stretch of success in 2019. Even so, Los Angeles still possesses big plans for the future under head coach Sean McVay while it remains to be seen as to whether or not Ramsey will ultimately be in those plans.
