Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey is available for trade, and almost every team with playoff aspirations will aim to get his services. The Baltimore Ravens are one of the teams who’ve been linked with the talented corner.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh was asked about his opinion on the entire situation, and he was mum about whether the Ravens actually were interested.
“I’m like fans. I read it,” Harbaugh said, per the Baltimore Sun. “It has a little interest, because if someone gets traded to a team that we’re playing, or away from a team that we play, that matters to us. If we’re ever involved in one of those, then that really matters to us. But it’s not something you could ever comment on anyway.”
The Ravens could certainly use a corner like Ramsey right about now. While their secondary is their deepest position, they did lose Tavon Young for the season with a neck injury and Jimmy Smith also remains out with a knee injury. There’s a good chance that they would make a move for a player like Ramsey if the situation is good enough.
The latest development on the Ramsey saga is quite confusing. After granting his wish and openly shopping him on the trade market, the team is reportedly trying to keep him in Jacksonville.
The Jaguars’ head coach wants nothing to do with it, though.
“My focus is so high on one thing that I really try to avoid all things that are going on around me,” said coach Doug Marrone, whose heated exchange with Ramsey in Houston served as the catalyst for the player’s trade request. “I’ve just been focused on really helping the players, really helping this team, win football games. All the other stuff — you guys know me better than anyone — my social skills aren’t very good.”
The entire league will be watching the situation progress and see if Ramsey does leave the team.
