Considering his impressive resume, that might not be sufficient.

A few months ago, Ramsey revealed that he’d someday like to play in either Nashville (his hometown) or Vegas.
Therefore, perhaps the Titans and/or Raiders could get involved. Only time will tell. After the news broke on Monday, the Jags were listed as 1.5-point home underdogs against the Titans in Week 3.
Since the Dolphins were able to get a first-round pick from the Steelers in exchange for Minkah Fitzpatrick on Monday, it’ll be fascinating to see what Jacksonville gets for Ramsey if they decide to honor his request.
