Jalen Ramsey wants a new (big) contract from the Jacksonville Jaguars. They've told him that's not happening this year. While that dispute likely won't come to a head until next year, the All-Pro cornerback admits he's more than entertained the idea of where he would like to play next if he doesn't remain in Duval County.
Despite two years remaining on his current contract, he's already determined two other favorites to give him his next one.
"It would probably be either here or Vegas," Ramsey said. "I like Vegas. ... It's got no state income tax. Here don't either."
Ramsey was then reminded that Florida doesn't as well, to which Ramsey responded: "But we're thinking about, we were making moves. And Vegas, you got everything there."
Except a football team, for now. That will change either next year or by 2021 at the latest. The latter also happens to be when Ramsey could theoretically become a free agent. The Jaguars picked up his fifth-year option, which means his base salary of $3.6 million in 2019 will increase to $13.7 million next year. But a lot can happen between now and then, especially with Ramsey making it clear he wants to cash in.
