Jalen Ramsey is clearly taking a different approach to cashing in on a new contract in 2020 than he did last year.

In one of the most memorable training camp arrivals in the history of training camp arrivals, Ramsey (literally) brought a Brinks truck to camp in Jacksonville ahead of the 2019 season.

Three months later, he was traded to the LA Rams. He is now entering the final year of his contract. Both the Rams and Ramsey have said the right things publicly about getting a deal done in the recent past.

But on Tuesday, while talking to media members, Ramsey made it clear he is not interested in discussing the deal. He said that is up to the Rams and his agent and he wants to only know about the talks when a deal is struck.

Ramsey apparently lost his composure for a bit while discussing his reasons for not discussing his contract.

Afterwards, Ramsey politely took to Twitter to clear the air and further explain his stance.

I don’t see this being a big deal. Ramsey is just 25 years old and is expecting a life-changing contract. It’s understandable that he is bit edgy. But in the end, his approach is correct. He should let the Rams and his agent to do their jobs. His focus is and should be on the field. The contract will work itself out.
