Jalen Ramsey restrains himself from ripping opposing QBs

first_img Dak Prescott says there’s no ceiling on what Cowboys can do When asked to give a breakdown of the signal callers he’ll face in 2019, Ramsey said he’s grown past the comparisons he once dished out like Halloween candy.”You want to do this again, huh?” Ramsey responded. “I’m not going to do this again but, we do play some good quarterbacks this year, of course, but probably the quarterback I’m most excited for is Nick Foles. I don’t have to play against him, of course. He is my teammate. He is a great teammate, the few interactions we’ve had has been great. Great man, great player as well. He has nothing to prove to anybody. He’s a Super Bowl champion, Super Bowl MVP. So, I hope he comes out here and he plays free and knows he has the support of everybody.” Related News Rams coach Sean McVay engaged to girlfriend Veronika Khomyn Ramsey made headlines for trash talking quarterbacks during a GQ interview last year in which he categorized the best and worst ones in the league. He most notably called Josh Allen “trash,” Jared Goff “average to above average,” Dak Prescott “alright,” Ben Roethlisberger “decent at best,” Kirk Cousins a “winner,” and Matt Ryan “overrated.”But these days, Ramsey is focusing on himself. “I’m growing man, it’s year four for me,” Ramsey said. “It’s a different me. A lot of people think they know me, they don’t really know me. But hey, that’s OK.”Ramsey, 24, was drafted fifth overall by Jacksonville in 2016 and the team exercised the fifth-year option on his rookie deal earlier this year.He had 65 tackles, three interceptions and 13 pass breakups in 2018. New year, same Jalen Ramsey? Don’t count on it.While speaking Monday on The Adam Schefter Podcast, the Jaguars cornerback restrained himself from ripping opposing quarterbacks around the NFL.
