Could the arms race be on in the AFC?
Less than two weeks after the Patriots signed Antonio Brown, the Kansas City Chiefs could look to match that move by picking up one of the best defensive backs in the NFL.
The Chiefs are said to be interested in trading for Jacksonville Jaguars corner Jalen Ramsey, who requested a trade Monday night. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the Chiefs could emerge as a “primary suitor” for the two-time Pro Bowler.
There is a strong sentiment among many NFL GMs that the Chiefs will emerge as a primary suitor for Jalen Ramsey. They are all-in to win now. Have embraced difficult players. Have a big need at corner. Could their secondary hold up vs New England in January? What about w/Ramsey?— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) September 17, 2019
Ramsey requested a trade in the wake of his sideline confrontation with Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone. He is owed a base salary of $3.2 million this season and $13.7 million next year. He is eligible for free agency following the 2021 season.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Monday that the Jags would be looking for at least a first round pick in return for Ramsey.
