The next big NFL trade could be just a few days away.

Jacksonville Jaguars star corner Jalen Ramsey demanded a trade from the team following the Jags' loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon.

Ramsey and head coach Doug Marrone engaged in a public confrontation on the sideline during the team's loss.

Just hours before Jacksonville's Thursday-night contest against the Titans, Ramsey revealed why he wants out.

"Some disrespectful things were said on their end that made me definitely walk out and call my agent as soon as I walked out. I told him, I said, 'It's time. My time is up here in Jacksonville," Ramsey said in an interview with Uninterrupted.

"I said I want to ask for a trade. I was truly at peace, like I wasn't in a mindset of making a decision while I was angry. I was completely calm. I still stand by that decision, asked for a trade."

The Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs reportedly called Jacksonville about a potential trade for Ramsey.

Arguably the best corner in the league, Ramsey could command two first-round picks, at least that's what the Jaguars are hoping for.

Jacksonville currently leads Tennessee 14-0 in the first quarter.
