Looking for a raise, Jacksonville Jaguar's defensive back Jalen Ramsey showed up at training camp in armored bank truck Wednesday.
At least he showed up. Defensive end Yannick Ngakoue did not report to the rest of the team ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Ramsey said after June's mandatory minicamp practice that he told the Jaguars he would not give him a contract extension in 2019. Roughly an hour later, Ramsey joke on social media that's going to "ask for so much money, they have put on lay-away."
Ramsey, however, said that he was not angry this season, the final year of his rookie contract. The Jaguars picked up his fifth-year option, which means he would make $ 1
Arriving to training camp in An Armored Truck brought the money issue back to the forefront. Ramsey rode in the back of the truck and had his own emcee;
"Y'all know what time it is. … A man so good they're fixing to give him his own jail, Jalen Towers, because these receivers are on 24-hour lockdown. "He's got eight Master Locks in his pocket." The man, the myth, Jalen Ramsey. "
Ramsey , the No. 5 overall pick in 2016, has made two Pro Bowls and what a first team All-Pro once in his first three seasons. He has nine interceptions and 44 pass breaks and has not missed a start.
Ngakoue, a fourth-year player, had skipped the three-day mandatory minicamp in June, resulting in a fine of $ 86,650.
Ngakoue is due to make $ 2.02 million this season and wants to deal with the mega-contracts that pass-rushers DeMarcus Lawrence and Frank Clark signed in the offseason. Both players' deals are worth more than $ 100 million over the life of the contract. Lawrence received $ 65 million and received $ 62.3 million.
Ngakoue has recorded 29.5 sacks and 10 forced fumbles since he entered the league as a third-round pick in 2016. He has more sacks than Lawrence (26), as well as Dee Ford (25) and Trey Flowers (21), who received $ 45 million and $ 56 million, respectively.
