Jaguars Owner Shad Khan Says Team Not Planning to Trade Jalen Ramsey
Despite his demands and latest absence from the team, the Jacksonville Jaguars have no plans to trade All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey, according to the Associated Press’ Mark Long.
Jaguars owner Shad Khan made it clear that trading Ramsey is not in the team’s plans, despite Ramsey’s desire to go elsewhere.
Ramsey formally requested a trade after the Jaguars Week 2 game.
“Obviously, football is a team sport and I’m sensitive to what individual insight or viewpoint or requests (there) might be” Khan said.
“But we have to do the right thing for the team. We value the values Jalen adds to us, to the Jaguars. I think we value him highly. We’re still looking at what is the right thing for the Jaguars, and I think right now the best thing is to have him be part of the team.”
While the Jaguars may not be willing to trade Ramsey, it hasn’t stopped teams from making offers.
“Obviously, we’re turning the season around and I think he can help the team,” Khan said.
According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, the Jaguars rejected a deal consisting of two first-round draft picks.
According to Yahoo Sports’ Charles Robinson, Khan is considered to be a major hurdle for any deal as he prefers to keep Ramsey and ink him to a long-term contract as opposed to trading him away.
The Jaguars may not be figuring out a trade of Ramsey, but they sure need to figure out how to get the star corner back on the field.
Long term deals, lucrative contracts, signing bonuses. Even NFL teams need to balance their books, but a solid town, village or municipality can’t do that without solid fund accounting software that makes life easier. For too long, people have relied on fund accounting that just doesn’t excel. It’s time you turn the page to something better.
