Give the guy credit. He went down defending his teammates and brothers.
While Jacksonville Jaguars star cornerback Jalen Ramsey is known for his relentless loud mouth and trash talk, the man took a stand for what he felt was right. After the local media criticized fellow defenders, including defensive end Dante Fowler, Ramsey had had enough.
But now he's going to pay for it.
#Jaguars All-Pro CB Jalen Ramsey was suspended by the team for a week, sources say, after going after local media for what he believes is unfair treatment of his teammates especially Dante Fowler. He authored several tweets in support of his teammates & disdain for local media.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 12, 2018
Since he was made aware of the news, Ramsey authored this tweet:
I’m always gone take up for my teammates kus I know what type of men and players they are forreal! Love my dawgs! If you don’t like it, oh well. God bless — Jalen Ramsey (@jalenramsey) August 12, 2018
And this was one of the tweets criticizing the media.
All that hating ain’t cool! & you supposed to be family lol go on somewhere— Jalen Ramsey (@jalenramsey) August 12, 2018
This next one was from just a few hours ago.
And this one came in the beginning of the month.
Lol already!? here you go reporting fake to get some clicks... @DJChark82 caught a deep ball on me (slight pushoff lol but good rep). He didn’t even do a triple move. The triple move was like 3 plays later on another 1on1 between other teammates. All good tho we WORKING! https://t.co/6IdPIbekv9— Jalen Ramsey (@jalenramsey) August 1, 2018
Nothing nefarious, but we know how NFL teams sure like to silence the players when it comes to causing a ruckus with the media. Ramsey felt the reporting wasn't honest, so he made his voice heard.
Unfortunately for the Jags, he'll spend a week away from the team, but that won't affect him at all for the regular season when Jacksonville tries to make another deep playoff run.
