Jalen Ramsey has made up his mind to move out from the Jacksonville Jaguars after their Week 3 game against the Titans on Thursday night game. NFL teams were ready to sign Ramsey in the Week 3 itself but as per the rules, he couldn’t play two games in a single week. It is why Ramsey was not signed but the Eagles are preparing their offer for the cornerback.
At the beginning of this week, an NFL team reached out to the league office and asked whether Jalen Ramsey could play Sunday for that team after he played Thursday for the Jaguars, per source. League informed the team no, that it’s one game per player per week.

The Jaguars are asking for two first-round picks which might be too much. Although, they would settle for another star cornerback along with a few picks to replace Jalen Ramsey in their roster. The Philadelphia Eagles could offer their CB Sidney Jones with some other assets to sign an exchange trade deal with the Jaguars.
Jalen Ramsey deal with Eagles for Sidney Jones
The Eagles general manager Howie Roseman understands the importance of defense after their fiasco in the opening game against the Redskins. The team needs a solid cornerback which add some depth to their roster and there can’t be a better name than Jalen Ramsey. Given how the Steelers offered a lot of assets and picks to the Dolphins for Minkah Fitzpatrick, the Eagles have to give something similar to the Jaguars for convincing them for a trade deal.

Philadelphia Eagles will receive: CB Jalen Ramsey, 2020 sixth-round pick, 2021 seventh-round pick
Jacksonville Jaguars will receive: CB Sidney Jones, 2020 first-round pick, 2020 third-round pick, 2021 fifth-round pick
Other offers for Jalen Ramsey by the Eagles
Jacksonville Jaguars can get greedy and won’t agree for such a deal where they have to offer their future picks. The competition for Jalen Ramsey in the NFL market is high and a lot of teams are ready to offer their best assets to the Jaguars in exchange. If the Eagles really need Ramsey to become part of their defensive side, they need to take a risk and sacrifice their future picks. Philadelphia would have to offer an inflated trade package so that the Jags prefer them over the other teams to trade Jalen Ramsey in an exchange deal.
