Jalen Ramsey is the newest member of the Los Angeles Rams after the team traded two first-round picks (2020 and 2021) and a 2021 fourth-round pick for the ex-Jags CB.
Ramsey confirmed the trade on his Twitter account:
The cornerback will have some explaining to do to his new quarterback, Jared Goff after social media brought up the comments Ramsey made in his infamous GQ interview when asked about the Rams quarterback:
“Jared Goff, he’s average to above average,” Ramsey said. “He reminds me of Jimmy Garoppolo a little bit. Year one, he wasn’t good. He wasn’t even good enough to earn his own starting role. Like, if you the number one pick, you expected to start now. Period. He wasn’t ready to do that. He wasn’t able to do that. Then when he did get in, he didn’t really do that good.”
To be fair, Goff was not good in his first season, but he rebounded nicely to lead the team to a Super Bowl birth, even though he played terribly.
Either way, it should be an interesting first interaction between Goff and Ramsey.
