When Jalen Ramsey requested a trade, the Jaguars immediately started seeking suitors. Right from the start, demands were high as expected. But no move has been made despite high interest in the star defensive back.

This past week, Ramsey missed practice and his first game since demanding a trade. This would typically entice a team to quickly make a move. But according to a report, Jacksonville recently turned down a sizable offer for Ramsey.

An undisclosed team reportedly offered two first-round picks for the Jaguars' All-Pro defensive back. But Jacksonville turned it down. The reason? The offer came from a 'good team' — a team Jacksonville expects to pick late in the first round.

The Jaguars clearly want a high pick in the upcoming 2020 draft. Not to mention, Jacksonville is hoping to send Ramsey to an inferior team.

Above all though, it appears the Jaguars are doing everything they can to keep Ramsey. After all, he's one of the best defensive players in the NFL.

But what does this mean moving forward? Ramsey has expressed again and again that he still wants to be traded. But Jacksonville hasn't made a move — and it doesn't appear any deal has come remotely close to being completed.

Will Ramsey miss more practices and games moving forward? Stay tuned for further updates on Ramsey and the Jaguars.
