Los Angeles Rams’ veteran cornerback Jalen Ramsey just arrived, via trade, from the Jacksonville Jaguars five days before the team took the field on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, and although Ramsey didn’t start, he made an impact on his new team.
“To be able to come in on such short notice, with such short practice time and to be able to play the way that he did, it was a big boost to our team for sure,” Rams head coach Sean McVay said, according to ESPN’s Lindsey Thiry.
Ramsey came in on the third play and put in four tackles and a forced fumble during his first game with his new team, as he defended Falcons’ superstar wide receiver Julio Jones, who finished with 6 receptions for 93 yards.
“I feel like I played OK,” Ramsey said. “I got to get in my groove a little bit more, it’s just maybe one, maybe two plays that I wanted to have back or play a little bit different, but I thought it was good.”
“Honestly, the defense was a little dumbed down for me, just because I only had a couple days to prepare,” Ramsey said. “I really appreciate the guys kind of going with the game plan because it probably wasn’t — I’m not going to say it wasn’t the best for them, because they went out there and they strapped, too — but just kind of appreciate everybody’s help these couple days I’ve been here, these few days I’ve been here.”
Ramsey’s debut was exciting for his teammates as well.
“It’s exciting for me, because we probably got 30 percent of our defense in, so getting into a lot of the other stuff that we do, so [Ramsey] can actually rep it, practice it and study it, it’s only going to make him more dangerous, and us as a defense, to keep teams on their heels” Rams safety Eric Weddle said.
“It was awesome,” Rams pass rusher Dante Fowler, who played with Ramsey in Jacksonville, said. “I was like, ‘Wow, he’s really out here on the field with me.’ … It’s going to be a special ride.”
“I don’t think you can say enough about his ability to digest the game plan,” McVay said. “He’s kept himself in good shape. I know he had the back thing, but [he] ended up feeling pretty good.”
“I want to get in a groove, knowing my safeties a little bit better, knowing the guys I’m out there with a little bit better,” Ramsey said. “This game I really trusted in them a lot, the way I play certain techniques, but I want to get in a groove a little bit more with how I do things with this secondary.”
