Two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey says

 Jacksonville Jaguars don’t intend to give him a contract extension this season.Ramsey joined teammates for the start of a mandatory Greedy Williams Jersey , three-day minicamp Tuesday and spoke publicly for the first time since last year ended. He touched on not wanting to take on a leadership role, his desire to see Jacksonville pay defensive end Yannick Ngakoue, the status of absent linebacker Telvin Smith and his recent switch from Jordan Brand to Adidas apparel.But Ramsey raised eyebrows when the session shifted to , desire for a new deal, saying, “I’ve been let know that I won’t be getting a contract extension.”He quickly clarified that it won’t happen in 2019.“Y’all take it however you may want to take that,” Ramsey said. “I’ve fought through injuries. I’ve fought through everything, haven’t missed a game. … I feel like I have outplayed my rookie contract and I feel I’ve earned a new contract Sione Takitaki Jersey , but at the end of the day, it’s not the end of the world.More Jacksonville Jaguars newsJaguars will be without starting CB A.J.

I’m so blessed. I’m not down on it or anything like that at all, but that is the circumstance. That is what I’ve been told.”Ramsey is entering the final year of his $23.3 million rookie contract. The Jaguars already exercised the fifth-year option in the deal, meaning he’s also tied to the club for $13.7 million in 2020.The Jaguars have made it clear they want the former Florida State standout to be a long-term piece of their defense. But they’re not ready to give him an extension with two years remaining on his current contract.Jacksonville, which has a little more than $9 million in cap space available, also expects to be in better financial shape next year after getting rid of about $24 million in dead money already paid to quarterback Blake Bortles Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , defensive tackle Malik Jackson, safety Tashaun Gipson, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and a few others.“The money’s always there,” Ramsey said. “Money’s always there. That’s all I’ll say about it. I’m happy to be here. I want to be a part of the team, but it won’t happen this year. I’ll just say that. We’ll move on.”Ramsey has 193 tackles and nine interceptions in three seasons, developing into a lock-down cornerback who usually shadows the opponent’s best receiver.He skipped the team’s offseason conditioning program and organized team activities for the second consecutive year, preferring to work out with his father and spend time with his family in Nashville, Tennessee.“I never worry about him being in shape or ready to go Austin Seibert Jersey ,” coach Doug Marrone said.Other topics Ramsey addressed:—He said he doesn’t want to be a leader this season.“That’s not something that you can force. I want to continue being myself, being even more supportive of my teammates and leading kind of from behind the scenes and by actions more so than kind of breaking down the team and giving speeches and stuff. That’s not how I view leadership. I think there’s different ways to lead.”—He reiterated his stance that the team should pay Ngakoue , who has 29 1/2 sacks in three seasons and is due to make $2.025 million in the final year of his rookie contract.“We’ve built something special. It’s a few guys who really came in and changed the culture and made things pop, and he’s definitely one of them.”—He said he talks to Smith all the time and wants people to leave his teammate alone. Smith said last month he plans to sit out the 2019 season to “get my world in order.”“We all love football dearly, of course, but that is not everything. … It’s not everything. He has a life. He’s enjoying himself. He’s getting right, doing what he feels is right, in the right mind frame.”—Ramsey also explained his switch to Adidas.“They flew me out to Portland Trysten Hill Jersey , me and the fam. Everything they presented and laid down on the table for me was second to none and that was the move I wanted to make. I think it was the best move for me business-wise.” Jets safety Jamal Adams quickly has become one of the best in the NFL at his position. But that doesn’t impress defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.“I’ve coached a lot better people than you before,” Williams said to Adams.And Williams didn’t say it only to Adams. Williams announced what he said to Adams during Williams’ first press conference as the team’s defensive coordinator, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.Williams knows how to push buttons, even if he no longer has at his disposal the devices that once were available, like cash payments for incapacitating hits.On that point, Williams has been reunited with a fellow former Saints assisant coach. Joe Vitt, who is coach Adam Gase’s father-in-law, gave strong testimony against Williams within the context of the broader #BountyGate controversy.“Next question Connor McGovern Jersey ,” Williams said when asked about Vitt. “He’s a great friend of mine. Will always be a great friend. I don’t care what you’ve written.”Williams also doesn’t care about Xs and Os. He attributes his ability to keep getting hired despite the bounty scandal and the cartoonish “kill the head” comments he made before a playoff game between the Saints and 49ers to one thing.“The reason I keep getting hired is culture,” Williams said. “And culture beats strategy any day of the week. It’s how you find ways to play tougher, work harder. . . . It comes from an attitude.”That’s the attitude that fueled the bounty scandal and the “kill the head” rant. So Williams has to do other things to find ways to get players to play tougher and work harder.Apparently, those way include adopting a Jack-Palance-in- vibe and rattling off lines like, “I crap bigger than you.”
