Cornerback A.J. Bouye was traded to from the Jacksonville Jaguars to the Denver Broncos on Tuesday in exchange for a fourth-round pick. However, Bouye isn’t the only star corner that the Jags have traded in the past year. In October, Jacksonville shipped All-Pro CB Jalen Ramsey off to the Los Angeles Rams getting two first-rounders and a fourth-round pick in return.
Following the news of Bouye’s trade to Denver, Ramsey took to Twitter and took a not-so-subtle shot at his former team.
Free all my dawgs lol

Ramsey had publicly had problems with the Jaguars organization prior to being traded to the Rams and has since doubled down on those feelings.
And while Ramsey had established himself as a star since being drafted by Jacksonville with the fifth overall pick in 2016, Bouye had a different path to the Jaguars.
After going undrafted in 2013 and playing his first four seasons for the Houston Texans, the 6-foot, 191-pound defensive back signed a five-year $67.5 million dollar contract with the Jags in 2017.
Bouye would make the Pro Bowl and All-Pro Second Team in his first year with the team, the former UCF star served as a starter on the team for the next two seasons.
Last season, Bouye recorded 65 tackles, eight passes defended, one tackle for a loss and one sack.
For Denver, star cornerback Chris Harris Jr. is a free agent this offseason and has generated a lot of interest from other teams. Bouye will help fill in any holes with the defense, especially if Harris signs elsewhere.
