Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey is being traded to the Los Angeles Rams for two first-round picks in 2020 and 2021, and a fourth-round pick in 2021.

The Jaguars have confirmed the trade.

Statement from Jaguars Executive Vice President of Football Operations Tom Coughlin:

"Given the situation with Jalen, we made this decision based on what we thought is in the best interest of the Jacksonville Jaguars, for this season and well into the future. We feel the trade that we struck with the Rams gives us great value for the next two drafts, and we remain very confident that our team today will compete this season for a division title. Jalen was a productive player, but the time came to move on and we wish him and his family the best in Los Angeles.”


-Sept. 15, 2019: Ramsey gets into a heated exchange with Marrone on the sideline at Houston. He's upset Marrone didn't challenge a 3-yard completion to Hopkins.

Ramsey calls his agent and says "my time is up here in Jacksonville."

-Sept. 22, 2019: Ramsey notifies the team that he is sick and misses practice.

-Sept. 25, 2019: Ramsey misses practice because of an apparent back injury. The team later announces that Ramsey has left to be with his family for the birth of his second child in Nashville, Tennessee. Marrone says Ramsey will return "when he's ready."

-Sept. 26, 2019: Ramsey tells the "17 Weeks" podcast that his trade request still stands, adding it is time to part ways when "respect is lost for both parties."
