They were after Fitzpatrick but couldn’t outbid a team that just gave up a probable top 10 pick
Late on Fitz, early on Ramsey. Split the difference
Looks like that KC/Ramsey rumor was a fake, or at least the guy reporting it on twitter was a fake. Ramsey's situation is going to be a little more interesting than Fitz's. Whomever's interested in Ramsey will likely have to come to terms on a new contract in order for JAX to get the value that they seek. Easy to give up a 1st for Fitz when he's under control for a few more years, but of course, Ramsey is up for FA.
If I'm the RAIDERS I have both of this year's 3rd round picks on the table as well as a 2nd rounder in 2021. Try to get it done without giving up a 1st since he's going to want to be paid like the top CB in the game. Only offer the Bears' 1st round pick if the bidding calls for it
There are teams interested in trading with the Jacksonville Jaguars for Jalen Ramsey. This is what I am told has been offered so far:
a 1st in 2020 & 5th in 2021 from an NFC Team and a 1st in 2020 & a player from an AFC Team
RAIDERS' 2020 1st rd pick + Daryl Worley?
@Chiefs source says the team isn’t interested in @Jaguars CB @jalenramsey now that he wants a trade. Source says the team’s locker room “is too good right now.” The team did ask @AZCardinals about CB Patrick Peterson earlier this year and was “emphatically told no.”
Lol They're too good for Ramsey, but not the cheater Pat Peterson?
This will end with the Jaguars trading Ramsey to the Patriots for a 2024 7th round pick and game worn cleats by Tom Brady.
The player I would guess is Karl Joseph.
Abram recruiting Ramsey to the RAIDERS, told Honey Badger to stand down
"Get back…we trying to see what’s up,” Abram said in response to Chiefs safety, Tyrann Mathieu’s attempts to recruit Ramsey.
Man, Abram and Ramsey would be a lot of attitude in the secondary
Couple reasons I don't think it's Joseph. He's up for a new contract, so hard time seeing JAX valuing him that much in a trade like this. But also the RAIDERS are razor thin @ safety right now, so I can't really see them sending a starting caliber safety out. Even if it's debatable that he's starting caliber.
Reason I think it could be Worley is because he has a hell of a lot of starts for a guy that just turned 24. 36 starts @ corner in 3 years is pretty strong for a young guy. Can see Worley and Ramsey just swapping jerseys, both are #20. But it sounds like Coughlin could be going Dell Demps on us Lol....
Per rival clubs, the asking price for Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey is two first-round picks. That's a starting point. And added to what it'd cost to extend Ramsey, it's a lot. But it's not totally crazy, given what Seattle got for Frank Clark and Miami got for Laremy Tunsil.
"League sources have said that the Raiders are one of the teams that have checked in with the Jaguars [on Jalen Ramsey],” Tafur reported in The Athletic on Tuesday afternoon.
Need to get it done with Mahomes in the division for the foreseeable future.
Although it would be nice, I don't think the Raiders will pull the trigger, not after getting burned by another malcontent.
Yeah, but the equation hasn't changed over the last week. Talent still = opportunity. McKenzie wasted valuable draft picks every year, but the RAIDERS are still showing up to the draft to take their cuts regardless. Just because AB goes nuclear doesn't mean they can afford to stop being opportunistic when talent becomes available. Fortune favors the bold. If they were gambling, RAIDERS' combination of draft pick value and cap space would put them among the chip leaders. Can't be afraid to play if you're among the chip leaders.
Besides, several key differences between AB and Ramsey. One being that AB never really fit with the actual rebuilding model, him being 31 years old and all. Ramsey's only 24. And then of course, AB said he didn't need football anymore before the RAIDERS traded for him, so he's just a law unto himself. But they are reportedly trying to pull this Ramsey thing off..have to imagine they're just looking to get it done w/o giving up both of their 1st rd picks. They need a star player on arrival in Vegas. A young/brash/popular/polarizing all-pro defender should also bolster marketing/intrigue. They have quite a few reasons to give chase, and if they don't get him they'll probably turn around and aggressively pursue AJ Green. It's a pivotal time in the rebuild given all the circumstances
Vic Tafur speculating that they may have made Gareon Conley available ( again). Wouldn't be shocking. Said a few times already that I don't believe he's a long term RAIDER given his tackling issues. They also shopped him last season. He'll never be more than an average CB unless he cleans up his tackling.
A 2020 1st + Conley and his potential may be a strong enough offer to get it done..likely viewed as a stronger offer than a 1st and Worley given Conley's 1st round draft pick status. RAIDERS can rotate Worley/Mullen at the corner opposite Ramsey and send the double team their way to help out..Lamarcus Joyner continues playing the slot. Solid set up. Still have to figure something out at safety opposite Joseph in the short term, but one miracle at a time. At least there's Abram returning next season and hopefully for more than 1 game next time around
Dell Demps got fired because he was going to accept the Lakers offer for AD.
Is that the word on the street? Because that's not what was reported. He was reportedly fired because of AD's trade request in itself. One of the reasons why he didn't take AD's trade request to ownership like he promised he would to AD/Paul. Fearing he would get the axe for failure to keep AD happy in N.O. Report added that Popovich also warned Demps not to give in, that he'd lose his job, and so he didn't give in, but still lost his job anyway - for the overall sucktitude and shitshow with an unhappy AD
Source: #Packers traded WR/Returner Trevor Davis to the #Raiders. Davis is a 4.3 speed WR and one of the League’s top punt & kick returners who should have an immediate opportunity to compete at WR.
We're trading for kick returners when Ramsey is available?
I'm told Jalen Ramsey is fine playing TNF tonight, but a source just told me he doesn't anticipate being a member of the #Jags next Sun. Teams like KC, BAL, MIN, OAK, PHI, SEA hv all made substantive inquiries, but my understanding is almost every team has at least placed a call.
Gardner Minshew beats the Titans. Smh Mariota is toast
Mariota has some of the worst pocket awareness I've ever seen. What a horrible QB.
Hopping around and throwing right into coverage, staring WRs down. Yeah, he's bad. Doesn't take much to get him off his spot and jittery
Titans are 7-9, 8-8, 9-7 champions. Treadmill dynasty
