#1 Jalen Ramsey thinks some people took his training camp von chenyan94 14.01.2020 07:08

JACKSONVILLE http://www.thejaguarslockerroom.com/authentic-andrew-norwell-jersey , Fla. (AP) — Jalen Ramsey thinks some people took his training camp entrance way too seriously.Ramsey said Sunday the stunt, which included an armored truck and a comedian posing as its driver, was merely meant to lighten the mood and have a little fun before Jacksonville’s two-week grind.“I’m serious about football, of course,” Ramsey said after the team’s fourth practice. “But at the same time I’m going to have fun. I’m going to be an entertainer as well as a football player. … I want to bring as much attention to it as I can in a positive way.”His performance , which came as players reported for camp, drew laughs from teammates and coaches.Ramsey crouched in the back of an armored truck, peered through a small window and waited for his introduction. The two-time Pro Bowl cornerback then flung open both doors, revealing dozens of phony money bags and a huge smile. As Ramsey exited the truck, the driver — comedian HaHa Davis — said into a megaphone, “It’s time to get this money, money.”“I told him he needs to have some real money in the truck,” running back Leonard Fournette said.Added coach Doug Marrone: “I was like Womens Abry Jones Jersey , ‘Those Adidas people know how to market.’ You know what I’m saying?”Ramsey is entering the final year of his $23.3 million rookie contract. The Jaguars exercised the fifth-year option in the deal, meaning he’s also tied to the club for $13.7 million in 2020.But Ramsey expects a new contract before next July, and his grand entrance provided a glimpse of what could be a season-long push to become the highest-paid cornerback in NFL history. Jacksonville is unwilling to give him an extension with two years remaining and already told him so.Nonetheless, Ramsey’s playful message was loud and clear.“It was a good collaboration,” Ramsey said. “A lot of people took it way too serious.”Ramsey is widely considered the best cornerback in the league. He has nine interceptions and 44 pass breakups in three seasons while typically shadowing each opponent’s No. 1 receiver.He caught a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter of the Pro Bowl in January and has made it clear to new Jaguars offensive coordinator John DeFilippo that he would like to get some time on offense this season.“Oh, for sure,” Ramsey said. “Almost every day I holler at Flip. Tune in.”Ramsey has no more performance bits planned, at least until the season begins against Pro Bowl receiver Tyreek Hill (Kansas City). Ramsey’s year also includes matchups against DeAndre Hopkins (Houston), Michael Thomas (New Orleans), A.J. Green (Cincinnati), T.Y. Hilton (Indianapolis), Mike Evans (Tampa Bay), Keenan Allen (Los Angeles Chargers) Lerentee McCray Jersey , Antonio Brown (Oakland) and Julio Jones (Atlanta). Those nine receivers have combined to make 36 Pro Bowls.So it’s a good chance for Ramsey to prove his worth.“What people see on the outside, they’re going to form an opinion,” Marrone said. “But I can tell you, as soon as he crosses into our building, it’s all about doing what’s best for the team and doing everything from that nature. … Jalen’s done a good job of coming in here, communicating with his coaches all through the year, working hard, in great shape, ready to go, and he talks about team in here. That’s what my concern is.“What happens on the outside — as long as our players are good husbands, good fathers or giving back to the community — that’s all my concern is. The other stuff, again, it’s become part of it.” ORCHARD PARK Corey Grant Jersey , N.Y. (AP) — Coming off their best offensive performance of the season — and an extra week of rest — the Buffalo Bills have their starting quarterback back.Josh Allen will make his return against the Jacksonville Jaguars, coach Sean McDermott said on Monday.Allen was a full participant on the practice field as the Bills returned from the Week 11 bye with a shortened 45-minute session.“I’m excited,” Allen said. “I’m thankful for the opportunity.”Allen missed four games after suffering an elbow injury in Buffalo’s Week 6 loss to the Houston Texans. The first-round pick returned to the practice field prior to the team’s bye week, but did not play in Week 10 against the New York Jets.The Bills have maintained that Allen, chosen seventh overall last spring, would return to the lineup when healthy — but that decision was not necessarily an easy one for the Bills.Matt Barkley started for Buffalo against the Jets and provided the team with its best performance under center this season, throwing for 232 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a 41-10 win.“You look at everything,” McDermott said. “That’s part of my job, my responsibility is to do that. (General manager) Brandon (Beane) and I spoke about it. We certainly were impressed with the way Matt handled things, but at the end of the day Josh is our starter and we’re excited to have him back.”Allen wore a black sleeve on his right arm at practice on Monday, which he said he could wear in games moving forward. He remained in Buffalo to rehabilitate his injury during the team’s bye and felt the extra time off was significant in his recovery.“The difference that I feel in the elbow right now compared to two weeks ago is a very big difference,” Allen said. “I’m thankful that I was able to sit out for one more week. … I’m making throws where I don’t have to second-guess Womens Calais Campbell Jersey , putting the ball where it needs to be. And when I’m making the throws there’s no grabbing or pulling in there and it feels fluid.”Allen’s return is just the latest change for Buffalo’s last-ranked passing attack. The Bills have made several moves in recent weeks with an emphasis on adding speed and youth at wide receiver, which paid off against the Jets.Deonte Thompson was signed during the team’s bye week. Thompson came out of nowhere to earn a significant role on offense last season, making 27 receptions for 430 yards and a touchdown. He signed with Dallas this offseason as a free agent and was released by the Cowboys on Nov. 9.“Things weren’t working out over there,” Thompson said. “It’s a great opportunity for me to come back here and get on the field and make some plays. … Coming back here was a no-brainer for me.”Thompson’s signing comes after a breakout performance by undrafted rookie Robert Foster. With three catches for 105 yards against the Jets, Foster became the first Bills receiver to top 100 yards in more than a year — since Thompson’s 107 yards on Oct. 22, 2017.“Brandon and I talked a couple weeks ago and we thought we were lacking in the speed department on offense so that’s been an emphasis the last couple of weeks,” McDermott said. “You saw some of that up against the Jets. That just opens things up a little bit.”The early returns on Allen have been mixed so far in Buffalo. The QB has shown flashes with his strong arm and mobility, but he has been largely inconsistent as a passer. In six games, Allen has thrown for 832 yards, two touchdowns and five interceptions.“I’ve been saying it — I think we’re close,” Allen said. “We went out and we executed very well against a good Jets defense. … That just speaks volumes to the guys that we have in this locker room.”
