Following a disappointing 5-11 season for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2018, star cornerback Jalen Ramsey seemed like he may be on the trade block. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Ramsey has previously stated he wouldn't give the Jaguars any type of hometown discount for his services once his contract is up, and he's stuck by those comments.
After the blockbuster NBA trade that sent Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook to Houston, Houston Texans wideout DeAndre Hopkins took to Instagram to welcome Russ to the city. On the post, Ramsey chimed in in the comment section and may have told the whole world his preferred destination if he hits free agency.
Jalen Ramsey to the Texans would certainly make some headlines, and it would undoubtedly make Houston one of the best teams in the NFL. Through his first three years in the league, Ramsey has accumulated nine interceptions to go along with 44 pass deflections, while also earning two trips to the Pro Bowl and one First Team All-Pro selection.
Not only would he make the Texans better, the Ramsey vs. Hopkins duels at practice would be fascinating to watch. They're two of the best at their respective positions, and them facing off against each other every day would only make them better.
We'd love to see what Ramsey would bring to an already stout Houston defense. If Jacksonville can't get a deal done for Ramsey before the 2019 season is over, keep an eye out for the Houston Texans in his bidding war next offseason.
