Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday that cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who has asked the team to trade him, will play on Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.
Marrone also said he spoke with Ramsey on Tuesday, and there are no lingering issues regarding their sideline shouting match in Sunday’s game. But he didn’t have anything to say on Wednesday about Ramsey’s trade request.
“I stay out of that,” Marrone said. “I stay out of contracts, stay out of that stuff, and my focus is on the guys that are playing, and he’s playing and he’s on the team. I don’t get involved in that.”
Ramsey’s agent informed the team after Sunday’s 13-12 loss to Houston that he wanted a trade. Ramsey is in the fourth year of his rookie contract and the team exercised the fifth-year option for 2020. League sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen the Jaguars are seeking at least a first-round pick but would like more than that.
