Quincy Williams Jersey 2019 , Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without cornerback Jalen Ramsey for a second straight week, and now they want their disgruntled star to see a back specialist.Coach Doug Marrone ruled Ramsey out Friday, saying he has been “working extremely hard to get back with this low-back issue and it hasn’t been getting any better.”Marrone said he didn’t know when Ramsey would visit a specialist.“I don’t know what the travel arrangements are, but Jalen’s always been someone that’s been extremely diligent in what he has to do to get back on the field Quincy Williams Jersey Color Rush ,” Marrone said. “Been one of the toughest guys that I’ve coached when it comes down to injuries and fighting back from it. We’re just working day to day to get it better.”Ramsey missed a seventh consecutive practice Friday and won’t play at Carolina (2-2). He was inactive for the first time in his four-year NFL career last week at Denver. The Jaguars (2-2) rallied to win in the final 90 seconds.Second-year pro Tre Herndon will replace Ramsey in the starting lineup again. The Broncos picked on Herndon in Jacksonville’s 26-24 victory last week.Ramsey declined to talk to reporters in the locker room Thursday.The two-time Pro Bowl selection said on a weekly podcast featuring NFL players that his back has been “extremely tight.”“It’s something I’ve had had to deal with over the course of my NFL career,” Ramsey told the Uninterrupted’s “17 Weeks” podcast this week. “At times, I’ve played through extreme pain or not practiced for weeks and tried to go out there and play. It’s something I’ve dealt with, so wasn’t able to go out there and put the product on the field that would have been beneficial for me or my teammates.”Ramsey requested a trade Sept. 15 following a heated argument with Marrone on the sideline in Houston and a much-less-public exchange with personnel chief Tom Coughlin after the game.Team owned Shad Khan told The Associated Press earlier this week that has no plans to trade Ramsey. Shad Khan didn’t become one of the greatest modern American success stories by being stupid.The Jaguars owner realizes that cornerback Jalen Ramsey wants out because he believes the team doesn’t view him as the best player in the league at his position. The Jaguars owner also realizes that there’s a very simple way to make him believe that the team views him as the best player in the league at his position: Make him the highest-paid player in the league at his position.It’s a simple approach to solving a thorny problem Black Quincy Williams Jersey , and Ian Rapoport of the NFL reported on Friday that Khan is willing to do it.It won’t be that hard to do it. As explained Friday, a six-year, $77.7 million offer puts Ramsey at $15.1 million per year in new money, jumping Miami cornerback Xavien Howard ($15.05 million per year) and Washington cornerback Josh Norman ($15 million per year) for the title of highest paid.Of course Quincy Williams Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys , Ramsey may want more than that. Norman got his $15 million per year as a free agent, making it a true $15 million per year. If Ramsey wants six years and $90 million, that pushes the new money average all the way to $18.1 million per year.But, hey Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys 2019 , if that’s what it takes to make Ramsey happy, that’s what it takes. And if in a few years he’s not happy with the fact that others have leapfrogged him and he decides he wants a new deal, then give it to him — if he’s still the best cornerback in the game.
