The Oakland Raiders have done a nice job bolstering their secondary, but Jalen Ramsey would be a monster signing.
There is no question that Jalen Ramsey and the Jacksonville Jaguars are not seeing eye to eye. Ramsey has proved time and time again that he is one of the best corners in the NFL, but the Jaguars appear to not be interested in extending him to a lucrative long term deal.
Ramsey has made it clear that he wants out of Jacksonville, and has even named two places where he could see himself playing; Tennessee and Vegas.
Ramsey was a guest on the “Bussin With the Boys” podcast, where he stated that the two ideal landing spots for him would be with the Titans or Raiders.
The Raiders would make sense as a team that would take Ramsey in, as they have the money, they could use a corner to line up opposite of Gareon Conley, and they have not been afraid to sign players with big personalities.
Las Vegas is going to be a hot spot for free agents for years to come, especially if the Raiders perform well this upcoming season. The Raiders have plenty of money and capital to make some key pickups next season, and Jalen Ramsey continues to sound like more and more of a possibility.
The addition of Jalen Ramsey will all depend on this upcoming season. If the Raiders struggle to keep players like Vontaze Burfict and Antonio Brown in line, they will surely stay away from another drama filled player.
If the Raiders pass defense plays well this year, the odds of them dishing out a ton of money on a free agency is slim, but if players such as Conley, Worley, or Mullen appear to struggle, do not be surprised to see Gruden pull the trigger on this one.
The Raiders have not shown any interest in Ramsey, but the time to make it happen is still far away. This will be a big story line to look out for next off season, especially if things continue to blow up in Jacksonville.
