The Cleveland Browns spent this offseason stockpiling talent. Now, they are eportedly are in the mix for Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who is on the trade block.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Browns are one of five teams in the running for Ramsey, who is expected to be traded in the coming days. The Chiefs, Eagles, Raiders and Seahawks were the other teams Rapoport mentioned.

The Browns currently have two highly-regarded young players at corner in Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams. However, Ramsey is arguably the top cover man in the NFL and would make the Cleveland secondary even more formidable.

This afternoon, Browns safety Damarious Randall drove fans crazy with this cryptic tweet amid rumors the team was considering trading for Ramsey.

Ramsey has made two Pro Bowls in his first three seasons. He is currently in the fourth-year of his rookie deal. Wherever Ramsey is traded, he'll likely be looking for a new long-term deal worth big bucks.

Reports indicate the Jaguars are looking for a first-round pick and then some for the former No. 5 overall pick, so the price is high. Despite the fact Jacksonville appears ready to trade him, Ramsey will reportedly suit up and play for the Jags in tonight's game against the Tennessee Titans.

The confident cornerback made headlines last week when he got into a sideline altercation with head coach Doug Marrone during a Week 2 loss in Houston.
