Ahead of this Sunday’s AFC Conference playoff game, Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey has been doing plenty of trash talking. This time, Ramsey bragged about himself when discussing New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
“He hasn’t played a corner like me before,” Ramsey said, per Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com.”
First of all, Ramsey’s comment throws shade at the multiple cornerbacks Gronkowski has faced over his eight-year career. Secondly, we are not sure how much the Jaguars plan on having Ramsey cover Gronk. Though, their paths are sure to cross at least a few times.
And lastly, Ramsey’s bold proclamation comes after his defense allowed the Pittsburgh Steelers to tally 545 yards and 42 points in the Divisional playoffs.
We will see soon enough who comes out on the winning end. Gronkowski is impossible to defend at 6-foot-6 and 265 pounds. Ramsey is 6-foot-1 and 56 pounds lighter.
Either way the game turns out, there should be no dull moments for those watching at home.
