Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey is unafraid to talk. Everyone knows that by now.
Ramsey recently joined Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan and former Titans linebacker Will Compton on their podcast, Bussin’ With The Boys.
They asked Ramsey where his ideal playing spot would be and Ramsey responded with two cities.
“It would probably be either here (Titans) or Vegas (Raiders),” Ramsey said. I like Vegas. They don’t have any state income taxes and here [Nashville] doesn’t either.”
Compton quickly brought up the fact that Florida doesn’t have state income tax either. Ramsey replied by indicating that if he moved, that’s how his thought process would be.
Ramsey grew up in Tennessee and was a Titans fan growing up.
“I was a Titans fan just naturally living here and then I was kind of a Dallas Cowboy fan because, you know, America’s Team,” Ramsey said on the podcast. “They were on TV the most.”
As for the Raiders, they’re expected to move to Las Vegas in 2020.
Back in June, Ramsey told reporters that his agent spoke to the Jaguars about an extension and those conversations left him with the understanding that the team will not extend him this year.
Ramsey is entering the fourth year of his rookie contract and is set to make $3.63M this season. The Jaguars already picked up his fifth-year option which will pay him $13.7M in 2020. His first opportunity to become a free agent would be in 2021, and even then the Jaguars could hold on to him by using the franchise tag.
Earlier this summer, Ramsey said in an Instagram Live video with Leonard Fournette that he won’t be giving the Jaguars any discounts in contract negotiations.
Jalen Ramsey says the #Jaguars could have gotten a discount on him this year. Next year? He wants every penny.
