If you thought the Antonio Brown drama was the only off-the-field storyline thus far this NFL season, you simply haven't been paying enough attention to what else is going on.
Over in Jacksonville, Minshew Mania for Gardner Minshew has been in full effect, but star cornerback Jalen Ramsey has also made it quite clear he wants off the team. For weeks now, it's been a wait and see for the defensive back, who is hoping to finish the season elsewhere.
Well, the asking price from the Jags for their Pro Bowl corner has been revealed and they sure aren't making it easy on themselves to get a deal done.
According to NFL insider Jason La Canfora, a team offered the Jags a pair of first-round picks, but Jacksonville turned that deal down because they thought the picks would end up being late first-rounders. Seriously?
So, you're telling me the organization is looking for more than two first-round picks for Ramsey? I'm sorry, as great as Ramsey is, what in the world do the Jags think they'll be able to get in return. Three first-rounders?
Perhaps a team will need to toss in a veteran, plus picks in order to land the superstar defender. At this point, Ramsey wants out, there's no doubt about that.
We'll have to wait and see if the Jags actually end up shipping him out of town. They may need to lower their demands, though.
