Jalen Ramsey is not shy about his motivations, this much is clear after the All-Pro DB showed up to Jaguars training camp literally in a brinks truck. It's time to get paid, and Ramsey is here to earn that check.
The former Florida State DB has two seasons left on his deal, as he's scheduled to make just over $7 million in 2019 and $13 million in 2020. Still, with a productive season for the Jaguars, Ramsey could see future contract talks moved up considerably if he can provide another Pro Bowl campaign.
Ramsey has earned another payday, as at just 24 years of age he's already become a name brand at the cornerback position. Yet, with Jacksonville seemingly balking at giving him a monumental raise, it's left some to wonder if he'll test the free agent waters and perhaps sign elsewhere. Ramsey's been very public in his desire to play for a winner, specifically Houston.
The brinks truck presents us with an entertaining sideshow, something Ramsey is quite familiar with. Yet, it doesn't really solve the overarching issue of whether Ramsey is in Jacksonville's long-term plans.
