Unhappy Jags CB Ramsey requests trade

Jacksonville cornerback Jalen Ramsey, through his agent, has asked the Jaguars to trade him, according to multiple reports Monday.

Ramsey’s request comes after he and coach Doug Marrone got into a sideline argument during Jacksonville’s 13-12 road loss Sunday to the Houston Texans.

The 2017 All-Pro cornerback apparently was not happy that the team did not use a challenge flag on a first-half reception by Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, Marrone said Monday.

Ramsey and Marrone had to be separated by players, with Jaguars safety Ronnie Harrison managing to pull Marrone away from Ramsey before things escalated further.

Marrone said the team does not plan any discipline against Ramsey.

“These things happen,” Marrone said. “They happen all the time; they really do. I think now they’re a little bit more publicized, but ever since I played there’s always stuff that goes on during the course of a game. Those things occur.”

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Jaguars had talked with teams about Ramsey and are asking for at least one first-round pick in return for the two-time Pro Bowl player.

Ramsey, 24, has started all 50 games since being drafted fifth overall in 2016. He has nine career interceptions and 202 tackles (178 solo) in his career.

Ramsey earns a base salary this season of $3.6 million, which jumps to $13.7 million next year.
