Jacksonville Jaguars star cornerback Jalen Ramsay, who asked for a deal last week, called the team to let him know he was ill and would not be able to train on Monday.
Coach Doug Marrow said Monday that he received the message that Ramsay was ill with the team's coach. Sources told ESPN's Adam Schaeffer that Ramsay had called the team Sunday night.
Ramsey, who believes he has the flu, still wants to trade and may not practice at all this week, Schefter sources say. The Jaguars are not interested in trading Ramsey, according to sources, creating a confrontation with the two-time Pro Bowler.
Marrone was asked if he thought the timing of Ramsey's calls to patients was strange given his commercial demand. [1
Marrone said he believed Ramsey would meet a doctor on Monday morning.
Jaguars owner Shad Khan heads the organization's position on Ramsey's trade request, according to sources.
The 24-year-old Ramsay played last Thursday night 20-7 at home to the Titans. He revealed in a recent episode of the 17 Weeks Continuous podcast that a frustrating conversation with the management of the team after Texas' second week loss was the latest impetus for his decision to seek a trade.
"Some disrespectful things were said at their end, which definitely made me go out and call my agent as soon as I got out, and I told him, I said, It's about time, it's my time here in Jacksonville. I want to ask for a trade, "" Ramsey said.
