If you want great news, here you go. Prior to the trade between the Los Angeles Rams and the Jacksonville Jaguars, cornerback Jalen Ramsey promised the team he won’t hold out in the offseason if the two sides cannot reach a long-term deal:
Sources: Jalen Ramsey promised the Rams that he won't hold out if sides can't reach deal this off-season.https://t.co/W3NjW2wSyf— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 20, 2019
Adam Schefter also had this to say:
Ramsey promised the Rams that even if the sides do not agree to a long-term deal this offseason, he will not hold out next season in the last year of his contract, league sources told ESPN.
Ramsey told the Rams, however, that if the sides are unable to reach an agreement on a long-term deal and Los Angeles then uses its franchise tag on him in the winter of 2021, all bets are off and he could hold out, according to sources.
So far, the relationship is off to a great start. The fact that Ramsey is willing to promise and honor his contract had to provide the Rams enough comfort to secure his services, and it speaks to his devotion to establishing a special culture with the Rams.
