The Jacksonville Jaguars 2019 regular season has not gone according to plan.
In Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs, starting quarterback Nick Foles broke his clavicle and was placed on IR, and following a Week 2 loss to the Houston Texans, the team's star defensive back Jalen Ramsey has reportedly requested a trade.

The Jaguars have spoken with interested teams, but there is no current plan to trade Ramsey.
Ramsey and head coach Doug Marrone got into it verbally during the loss to Houston and according to multiple reports, the fractured relationship could expedite a potential trade.
The Jaguars are reportedly asking for at least one first-round pick in return for the two-time Pro Bowl cornerback.
It's worth noting that Ramsey's agent, David Mulugheta, also represents Redskins Dwayne Haskins and Landon Collins. Collins tweeted at Ramsey back in April, jokingly recruiting Ramsey to D.C. after Jaguars' VP of Football Operations Tom Coughlin called out Ramsey for missing voluntary offseason workouts and the latter responded.
@jalenramsey if you don’t want to be on a team where your VP.... is all in the media, all in your mentions, talking about voluntary workouts and questioning your work ethic...then come to the Redskins (Suge Knight voice) #HTTR (24 + 23 + 45 + 20 = 🔒🔒🔒🔒)— LANDON COLLINS (@TheHumble_21) April 19, 2019
Ramsey, who was the fifth pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, is currently looking for a new contract. He is currently in the fourth year of his rookie deal and the Jaguars have picked up his fifth-year option in 2020.
