Ramsey said the Jaguars have informed him that they won't offer him a contract extension in 2019, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. With the fifth-year option on his rookie deal keeping Ramsey under team control through 2020, the Jaguars apparently have no interest in discussing an extension until next offseason. The superstar cornerback is present for mandatory minicamp, but it isn't hard to imagine how the relationship between team and player might eventually deteriorate.
Ramsey isn't certain to report for the start of the Jaguars' voluntary offseason program April 15, Hays Carlyon of 92.5 FM JAX Sports Radio reports. Ramsey, who reportedly prefers to train at his father's training facility in Nashville, didn't show up for voluntary OTAs this past offseason. Now that he's eligible for a contract extension after accruing his third professional season, the two-time Pro Bowler seemingly has even less of an incentive to show up for voluntary workouts this time around. With that said, there's been nothing to suggest Ramsey is considering a holdout that extends past the commencement of Jacksonville's mandatory minicamp June 11.
Ramsey had 65 tackles (62 solo) and three interceptions over 16 games in 2018. Ramsey battled knee issues for a good chunk of the season but never missed a game, and he actually was on the field for all but four of the team's 1,020 defensive snaps. The 23-year-old had 13 passes defensed, as he was once again one of the better cover corners in the NFL. Ramsey enters the final year of his rookie deal next season, but the Jaguars have the opportunity to pick up his fifth-year option for 2020 by the May 3 deadline.
Ramsey (knee) had six solo tackles and two passes defensed in Sunday's 6-0 win over Indianapolis. Ramsey and the Jaguars defense were able to keep Andrew Luck and the Colts off the scoreboard Sunday for their first shutout of the season. The 24-year-old is still on the injury report with the knee issue, but at this point there is little indication he is in danger of missing Thursday's game at Tennessee.
Ramsey (knee) is expected to play Sunday's game versus the Colts, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. This is good news for the Jaguars but unfavorable for owners of Colts wideout T.Y. Hilton. Ramsey shadowed Hilton in Week 10 and held him to three catches for 77 yards. Look for Ramsey to try adding to his eight pass breakups and three picks this year.
