Jaguars owner Shad Khan indicated Wednesday the team has no plans to trade star CB Jalen Ramsey.
“Obviously, football is a team sport, and I’m sensitive to what individual insight or viewpoint or requests [there] might be,” Khan told Mark Long. “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.”
The Ramsey trade story is long and drawn out and at one point, a trade seemed imminent. Now, it appears the team is hoping to keep their best defensive player.
Ramsey missed his first game in four seasons last Sunday as he traveled to Denver but did not play against the Broncos. The Jags won anyway, improving to 2-2.
“Obviously, we’re turning the season around, and I think he can help the team,” Khan said.
