Since Ramsey was drafted in 2016, he’s been arguably top-of-the-line cornerbacks within the NFL. From the best way it seems to be, the Jaguars might not have for much longer with that cornerback. A report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter surfaced this season, saying the Jags have been contemplating buying and selling their star cornerback. Whereas the group refuted the report, that is typical, as no workforce needs to make their intentions recognized in the event that they plan to commerce a participant.

Apart from Ramsey, this staff has loads of expertise all all through the roster.

The Bengals additionally haven’t made an enormous transfer in fairly a while, so this might be a transfer that breaks the seal. What must be motivating for Ramsey too, is that this offense has all of the potential on the earth.

In the identical breath, Ramsey might not like having to have lots of strain on the protection. Proper now a lot of his frustration comes with the offense struggling, however he might get much more annoyed when the protection is struggling.

Prior to now, the secondary has been a reoccurring challenge for the Inexperienced Bay Packers. Now, they’ve strong cornerbacks, with Jaire Alexander being their star.

The reality is, the secondary is likely one of the areas the Packers are strong at. They will work the draft and free company to construct round different elements of the protection, whereas additionally enhancing a struggling offense. It’s not value what it takes to get Ramsey.

18 Might Commerce: Oakland Raiders

by way of

If the Jaguars do commerce Jalen Ramsey, a minimum of a primary spherical decide goes to need to be provided. Fortunately, the Oakland Raiders have three of them. Jon Gruden can be prepared to surrender a primary, and that’s all for Ramsey. The reason is is as a result of they’ve three draft picks that can be utilized for a cornerback. In the event that they solely have to surrender one, it’s equal to them simply drafting a participant, which makes all of the sense as a result of Ramsey is a assured star.

Sure, the stacked Los Angeles Rams secondary has struggled. Marcus Peters has not been nearly as good as they anticipated, and Aqib Talib has missed numerous time. It’s just one season. It’s a must to let Peters absolutely develop into this protection, and let Talib get wholesome. The Rams have been as aggressive as anybody within the offseason, however they’ve to put off the breaks on this one.

It’s going to be too costly for the Rams to handle a roster like they have already got, in order that they actually need to start out build up on draft inventory. To not point out, they will ultimately have to offer Jared Goff an enormous extension, whereas Gurley’s and Donald’s large offers are set to kick in subsequent season.

Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports activities

San Francisco is a workforce you’d anticipate to have an interest due to their cap area, nevertheless it doesn’t appear to be a spot Ramsey would need to play. Sure, it’s California, however this protection has actually struggled. On prime of that, the 49ers haven’t actually confirmed that even with Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback, this can be a playoff workforce.

It’s a legendary group with a whole lot of potential, however nothing is assured. If this staff goes to win, it’s going to take time to develop the workforce. Some might really feel that is the case for the Raiders, a workforce he would play for, however there’s extra money on the market, they usually have the cash to flip this staff round right into a playoff staff subsequent season.

15 Might Commerce: Washington Redskins

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports activities

This staff could also be a slight stretch, nevertheless it’s nonetheless attainable. The Washington Redskins might stack up their protection by buying and selling for Jalen Ramsey. Think about, they use a primary rounder and now this protection is as scary as any protection within the league. The Redskins entrance line have been nice, however the secondary has been shaky. Now, you’d have a secondary together with Jalen Ramsey, Josh Norman, D.J. Swearinger, and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

What helps is, Ramsey continues to be in his rookie contract. The Redskins must commerce Norman (or launch him) following the 2019 season, to make room for Ramsey’s contract. It’s kind of of stretch, however you get one yr with a harmful protection, after which have an improve from Norman sooner or later.

14 Should not Commerce: New Orleans Saints

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports activities

At present, the Saints have one of many weakest secondaries within the league. Contemplating that assertion, it might appear apparent that they need to commerce for Jalen Ramsey. Not so quick. The Saints made a mid-season commerce for Eli Apple, who, regardless of a nasty recreation right here and there, has appeared higher than he ever did in a Giants uniform. On the opposite aspect, they’ve Marshon Lattimore who was exceptional in his rookie season.

Ramsey can be an improve over both of these guys, however it’s not value it, contemplating they’re already brief on draft inventory. To maneuver up within the 2018 NFL Draft, the Saints had to surrender a 2019 first rounder.

13 Would not Need: Detroit Lions

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports activities

The Detroit Lions are one other staff with a nasty secondary. Apart from Darius Slay Jr., this secondary hasn’t been excellent in any respect. Does Jalen Ramsey repair the issue? He helps so much. If in case you have Slay on one aspect and Ramsey on one other, you’re secondary has improved. The issue is, there isn’t a method Ramsey would need to play there.

Detroit is a lifeless finish within the NFL. As soon as gamers go there, their careers are likely to go downhill. They both wrestle or signal a terrific contract however lose love for the sport as a result of the group has been so dangerous. Calvin Johnson and Barry Sanders are prime examples. Ramsey needs to win, so he doesn’t settle for enjoying for the Lions.

12 Might Commerce: Atlanta Falcons

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports activities

Atlanta’s secondary has been crushed up all season, so you may say they’ve a respectable excuse why they’ve been so dangerous. Their cornerbacks, nevertheless, might nonetheless be improved. A Jalen Ramsey commerce might put the Falcons again into the talks of being a Tremendous Bowl contender. Ramsey would value them a primary, but when it means placing them again within the dialog to be a Tremendous Bowl workforce, then it’s value each penny.

It’s not far in any respect from the place Ramsey is enjoying in Jacksonville, so it’s not an enormous transition for him. Ramsey needs to win, and instantly he will get put able to do exactly that.

11 Should not Commerce: Cleveland Browns

Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports activities

All through the previous two offseasons, the Cleveland Browns have needed to spend some huge cash and make a whole lot of strikes to place them the place they’re now.

This can be a group that may quickly be full and that can be arduous to beat in the future.

The secondary consists of Denzel Ward and Damarious Randall, which has been a stellar group. Ramsey is intimidating to go after due to his expertise, however the Browns should belief their youth and potential to develop with the staff.

10 Would not Need: Miami Dolphins

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports activities

For years, the Miami Dolphins have did not draft a strong cornerback. This previous draft, the Dolphins settled with Minkah Fitzpatrick, who they’ve been using within the nickel formation. Fitzpatrick has a whole lot of potential, and ought to be a very gifted participant for years to go, however he gained’t change this secondary. The Dolphins want to enhance their secondary. Ramsey gained’t need to be a part of that assist.

Miami can be a ravishing place to reside, however Ramsey is a winner. The Dolphins will not be. Till the Dolphins transfer on from Ryan Tannehill and enhance their protection, this group isn’t going anyplace.

9 Might Commerce: Philadelphia Eagles

Steve Flynn-USA TODAY Sports activities

This season, the Eagles secondary has been crushed up. It’s actually harm them and their possibilities at making one other playoff run. Even once they have been wholesome, this wasn’t the perfect secondary. Enhancements wanted to be made. Jalen Ramsey can be an enormous assist.

All through the NFC East, there are actually gifted receivers which were capable of rip the Eagles secondary to shreds. Ramsey isn’t going to let these extensive receivers do the identical factor to them. Ramsey helps scare these offenses and places the Eagles again within the driver’s seat to be the frontrunners to win the division once more sooner or later.

eight Should not Commerce: Seattle Seahawks

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports activities

With the final remnants of the Legion of Growth to go away Seattle this offseason as Earl Thomas checks free company, the Seahawks want to seek out their new id on protection. There’s loads of expertise on that protection at present, however there’s numerous room for enchancment. Particularly, within the secondary.

When you can have Shaquill Griffin on one aspect, and Jalen Ramsey on the opposite, that is a really gifted secondary. Nevertheless, the Seahawks have been recognized for drafting their primary items, and they need to persist with that. The present workforce that everybody thought would have a dropping season seems like a robust candidate for the no. 6 seed within the NFC.

7 Would not Need: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports activities

There can be completely no level in Jalen Ramsey enjoying for the Buccaneers. If he thinks he’s in a nasty state of affairs with the Jaguars, Tampa can be even worse. It looks like Tom Coughlin has realized Blake Bortles just isn’t the reply, and that they should transfer on. Whereas in Tampa, the Buccaneers might very a lot nonetheless be caught on Jameis Winston.

Regardless of even the quarterback state of affairs, the Buccaneers secondary is dangerous. There’s a lot that must be patched up, that Ramsey would solely be a step in the suitable path. He’ll avoid the Bucs.

6 Might Commerce: Carolina Panthers

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports activities

Donte Jackson has been actually spectacular on one aspect of the Panthers secondary, however they might use assistance on the opposite aspect. This Panthers staff seemed like it will run away with the No. 5 seed within the NFC. Now, they’re on the surface wanting in. Ramsey wouldn’t patch up the offensive holes, however he would make this protection that rather more aggressive.

The Panthers have been within the Tremendous Bowl simply three years in the past, and will have an opportunity to be again with an improved protection (they by no means actually discovered a alternative for Josh Norman). On prime of the expertise of this group, the Panthers’ tradition meshes completely with Jalen Ramsey.

5 Should not Commerce: Dallas Cowboys

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports activities

Lastly, the Dallas Cowboys have arguably the perfect protection within the historical past of their franchise. The Cowboys just lately surprised the soccer world held one of the best offense within the NFL (New Orleans) to solely 10 factors. Perhaps a yr in the past, we might have stated the Cowboys want a cornerback. With Byron Jones moved again to cornerback and the remainder of the secondary enjoying at a excessive degree, there’s no want.

All of the Cowboys have to do is pay these guys on protection to be sure to maintain this protection for a very long time. Together with merely not needing Ramsey, the Jaguars cornerback said he would not play for Dallas so long as the Jones household owns the group.

four Would not Need: New York Jets

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports activities

It doesn’t matter if the Jets have all the cash on the planet to pay Jalen Ramsey, he doesn’t need to lose. Like all the time, the Jets are a great distance away from success. Sam Darnold is popping the soccer over too typically, and the defensive position fails to get strain on the quarterback. The Jets have many wants, and cornerback isn’t excessive on the precedence record.

If the Jets don’t signal Trumaine Johnson to an enormous contract within the offseason, this makes extra sense on their finish. Proper now, it doesn’t make sense for both staff. Whereas the Jets might name to accumulate, they gained’t undergo with it even when the chance lies there.

three Might Commerce: New England Patriots

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports activities

What if Jalen Ramsey jumped board and performed for the staff that beat the Jaguars within the AFC Championship Recreation final season?

The longer term is unknown in New England, as yearly looks like the final season of Tom Brady’s profession. Why not enhance the protection and make it prepared for the times after Brady?

2 Should not Commerce: New York Giants

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports activities

Issues look as dangerous as they probably might over the previous two seasons for the New York Giants, however don’t hit the panic button simply but. In 2016, the Giants protection was one of many higher ones within the league. Since then, they’ve undoubtedly had their struggles. That doesn’t imply they need to go forward and provides away a primary spherical decide.

The Giants have rather a lot to repair, together with the quarterback place. Buying and selling away a primary spherical decide doesn’t assist that state of affairs. They need to maintain the primary rounder, and go develop within the draft. Jalen Ramsey is a certainly one of a sort cornerback, however don’t lose confidence in Janoris Jenkins.

1 Might Commerce: Kansas Metropolis Chiefs

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports activities

The Kansas Metropolis Chiefs might have one of the best probability of profitable a Tremendous Bowl since their 1970 championship. This staff has all of the expertise to win one other championship in the event that they enhance their protection. Offensively, they’re up there with the perfect of all of them, regardless of simply needing a operating again following Kareem Hunt’s sudden launch.

If the Chiefs commerce for Jalen Ramsey and draft some defensive expertise, and you’re proper there with the remainder of these Tremendous Bowl picks yr after yr. Ultimately they may get there, however with Ramsey, they might velocity up the method. Kansas Metropolis has a robust sufficient tradition and a properly revered head coach for Ramsey to not disrupt any chemistry.
