News came out currently, Monday, Sep. 16, that Jacksonville Jaguars star cornerback Jalen Ramsey is requesting a trade following a sideline argument with head coach Doug Marrone.
The Saints are obtaining significant troubles this season with their cornerbacks and it is a trouble that has been negative for some time. Final season the Saints pass defense was ranked 29th in the NFL. So far this year there does not appear to be significantly to inspire optimism that it is finding much better. How about bringing in a genuine star to take more than for anyone at present playing in New Orleans? Jacksonville Jaguars Pro Bowl corner Jalen Ramsey is requesting a trade. The Saints ought to be in that marketplace.
Ramsey is the second higher-profile defensive back attempting to hit the marketplace with present Dolphins corner Minkah Fitzpatrick currently finding permission from his group to seek a trade and greener pastures. Either of these players would be a significant upgrade.
For the Saints, the 3 beginning cornerbacks, Marshon Lattimore, Eli Apple and P.J. Williams have been worked more than. The 29th location finish in 2018 may possibly not be the floor for this group. P.J. Williams is an exceptional tackler possibly would make a superior security, he’s not a slot corner. He’s an “All You Can Eat” sign in neon more than the middle of the Saints defense. Cooper Kupp went for 120 on Sunday.
Saints fans want to face the truth that the cornerbacks group is not playing properly this year. Or final year for that matter. Lattimore’s slump appears to have worsened. Either Minkah Fitzpatrick or Jalen Ramsey could quickly step in and make this defense much better. For a very first-rounder, if they let go of either that inexpensive? You have got a deal.
You know factors are finding crazy on an NFL sideline when the head coach has to be pulled back. Apparently, Jalen Ramsey currently melting down and it is not even halftime #Jaguars #Texans pic.twitter.com/clU9UyICB8

The funny issue about Jalen Ramsey is that he was regarded as the quantity one particular free of charge security in the draft in 2016 as ranked by NFL Draft Scouts. Quantity two was a kid out of Clemson from Sylacauga, Alabama named T.J. Green. He’s at present on the Saints practice squad.
Why would I give away a draft choose so conveniently? It is a crapshoot. Who’s your very first round going to be? We’re speaking about poor play from Lattimore, Apple, each very first-round picks. Andrus Peat? And the jury is nevertheless out on Davenport and he was two very first-round selections.
Ramsey is apparently requesting a trade following a sideline shouting match with Jaguars coach Doug Marrone that just about ended in blows. Neither Ramsey or Marrone had been disciplined for the incident.
Jalen Ramsey is an instant upgrade more than something on the Saints roster and ditto for Fitzpatrick. And I haven’t noticed something to indicate very first-round choose Eli Apple is any much better than undrafted rookie Ken Crawley. Trading a roll of the dace for a confirmed commodity like either of these two is the most logical issue to do and it requires to be accomplished immediately.
