Rams star cornerback Jalen Ramsey spoke positively about the prospect of getting a contract extension done soon with the Rams, according to The Athletic reporter Jourdan Rodrigue.

Most importantly, Ramsey said on a Tuesday morning call with reporters that he will not hold out of training camp this summer if a deal isn’t done by then. That is a great sign of good faith and it probably is an indication that Ramsey is fully confident a new deal will get done.

Later on Tuesday, Rams coach Sean McVay said he too is confident that a new deal will get done for Ramsey.

McVay also went on to say that Ramsey has been terrific in team virtual meetings this offseason and he is very excited about his personal growth.

Ramsey, 25, is considered one of the best cornerbacks in the league and his new deal will likely set the cornerback market. Darius Slay of the Eagles is currently the highest paid cornerback in the NFL, averaging $16.6 million.

The Rams gave up two first-round draft picks to acquire Ramsey from Jacksonville last season. So, there is no way they aren’t going to extend him.

With Ramsey committed to showing up to camp on time, I wonder if he is going to show up the same way he did to camp last year with the Jaguars?
