The Jaguars received a haul in exchange for Ramsey bringing back two first-round picks in 2020 and 2021, as well as a fourth-round pick in 2021. The fifth overall pick in the 2016 draft has nine career interceptions along with innumerable conflicts with his coaches, the front office and the Jags' opponents.

"Shad Khan expected Jalen Ramsey to play after a heart-to-heart meeting last week, and he did not play". The Ravens are sending second-year linebacker Kenny Young to Los Angeles in the deal, according to Jay Glazer.

The Ravens also have Brandon Carr , Justin Bethel , Maurice Canady , Anthony Averett , and Cyrus Jones at the position. Cornerback Jimmy Smith (knee) has missed the past five games, and nickelback Tavon Young (neck) is out for the season.

At 3-3, the Rams were already in danger of slipping too far behind the undefeated 49ers and 5-1 Seahawks in the NFC West, and apparently weren't content to risk letting this year languish. He had a public spat on the sideline with coach Doug Marrone in Week 2 at Houston, and he clashed with personnel chief Tom Coughlin after the game. Ramsey didn't, prompting Khan's decision to move on from the disgruntled defender. The Jaguars now have 18 picks, including four first-round selections, over the next two drafts. He said Ramsey "is a great ball player, hard worker and when the helmet and pads came off, he always treated folks of our city well".

In the midst of a three-game losing streak, the Rams (3-3) will now be without their two starting cornerbacks, following Aqib Talib's placement on injured reserve. Peters continued to play at a high level with the Rams, helping them reach the Super Bowl last season. Los Angeles needs a new left guard after Joe Noteboom's season-ending knee injury.
