NFL Rumors: Jalen Ramsey requests trade from Jaguars

NFL Rumors: Jalen Ramsey requests trade from Jaguars

As the Jaguars seem well on their way to another disappointing regular season, their best player has reportedly asked for a trade. 

According to Adam Schefter, cornerback Jalen Ramsey asked the Jaguars to trade him one day after a clash with head coach Doug Marrone. The Jaguars are asking for at least one first round pick in any trade for the superstar corner. 

Here's the confrontation between Ramsey and Marrone:

Ramsey joins Minkah Fitzpatrick as talented defensive backs to ask for a trade within the first month of the season. While the Patriots seem to be all set in their secondary, allowing just three points in two games so far this season, both situations are worth monitoring for them.

Whether they want to make an offer to either team or another AFC contender swoops in to acquire one of them, big transactions have an impact on the best team in football no matter what. The Patriots had a hard time negotiating with the Steelers for Antonio Brown because Pittsburgh's ownership did not want to send a marquee player to their rival. While the Jags and Dolphins aren't contenders, neither team has much love for the Pats or have much reason to do business with them. 

Another factor in acquiring Ramsey is his contract. Jared Goff, Carson Wentz and Ezekiel Elliott were three players drafted in front of Ramsey in the 2016 NFL Draft and have all received large extensions. Ramsey is in line for his own, and considering he's arguably the best corner in the game, he'll command a large figure.

Considering the Patriots are already paying Stephon Gilmore $13 million, that'd be a lot of money to commit to a secondary that has been exceptional this season already.

NFL players rip league's postgame jersey swap policy for next season

A tradition that became popular in international soccer has become a staple of NFL postgames in recent years, but it might not be allowed during the 2020 season.

Swapping jerseys with an opponent is now commonplace in North American professional sports leagues. We often see younger players swap jerseys with veterans who they grew up watching. Former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is a sought-after player for the postgame jersey swap. Multiple players from the Washington Redskins asked for his No. 12 jersey after a Week 5 game last season.

Well, unfortunately for NFL players, swapping jerseys could be banned in the upcoming season as the league tries to implement social distancing measures amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the NFL and NFLPA have not yet agreed on all of the medical protocols for gamedays. NFL Media's Tom Pelissero reported the latest information Thursday:

Players were not pleased with this development, to say the least.

One of the most outspoken players was San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, who tweeted the following message. It earned a retweet from Patriots running back James White, among other players.

Many other players were not afraid to share their displeasure with the jersey swap potentially being banned. Here are some of those reactions:

With opposition so strong and coming from several of the league's stars, it'll be interesting to see if the league eventually eases up and allows jersey swaps to happen as normal next season.

Cam Newton is wasting no time getting to know his New England Patriots wide receivers.

This Wednesday, it was N'Keal Harry's turn to catch passes from Newton, according to, which obtained video of the duo's L.A. workout from EBA Sports.

The video shows Newton meeting Harry for the first time as a member of the Patriots before throwing the second-year receiver a handful of passes.

Harry has been working hard this offseason to improve his game after a disappointing rookie campaign. The Patriots' 2019 first-round pick appeared in just seven games last season due to a nagging ankle injury, catching 12 passes on 24 targets for 105 yards and two touchdowns.

It's encouraging to see the 22-year-old on the practice field with Newton, who's aiming to bounce back from his own foot injury that limited him to two games in 2019.

Newton will have to beat out second-year QB Jarrett Stidham for the starting job, and it appears he's eager to get started while developing chemistry with his new pass-catchers.
