Before Week 6 officially kicked off Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan said that he expected star cornerback Jalen Ramsey to play.

That didn't happen.

Ramsey, who has requested a trade out of Jacksonville, did not see the field during the team's game against the New Orleans Saints this weekend.

The former Florida State star made it clear he no longer wanted to play for the Jaguars organization - and now the team has finally obliged.

According to a report from NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Jaguars traded Ramsey to the Los Angeles Rams.

Los Angeles shipped two first-round picks and a fourth rounder to the Jaguars in the deal.

Earlier this afternoon the Rams sent corner Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens for linebacker Kenny Smith and a draft pick.

Immediately after the move, media and fans alike suggested Ramsey would end up in Los Angeles. The Rams placed Aqib Talib on injured reserve and sent its other starting corner away - meaning the team would have been without its two starting corners.

Instead, the Rams made a major play to bring Ramsey in. He immediately bolsters a defensive back corps that has struggled mightily in 2019.
