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.

Watch Julian Edelman throw TD pass to Phillip Dorsett on Patriots' trick play

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman showed off his old quarterback skills to score a much-needed touchdown early in the third quarter of Sunday's Week 11 game versus the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Patriots opened the second half with the ball and moved down the field with ease against the Eagles defense. New England entered the red zone for the fourth time in the game and scored their first TD thanks to an Edelman pass to fellow wide receiver Phillip Dorsett.

Brady took the snap on 3rd-and-11, threw to Edelman, who found a wide open Dorsett for a 15-yard score. The veteran wideout took a huge hit in the end zone but held onto the ball.

Take a look at the trick play in the video below:

It was Edelman's first touchdown pass since the 2014 AFC Divisional Round win over the Baltimore Ravens. Edelman, as you might already know, was a quarterback in college at Kent State. His NFL passing stats, as ESPN's Mike Reiss pointed out, are pretty good.
