Jalen Ramsey Says Las Vegas Would Be “Ideal Playing Situation”

Jalen Ramsey has been wanting a new deal in Jacksonville for a while and since it doesn’t seem to be coming, Ramsey was asked on Monday where his “ideal playing situation” would be in the NFL.

“It would probably be either [Tennessee] or Vegas,” Ramsey said on the Bussin’ with the Boys podcast. “Yeah, Vegas. I like Vegas. They ain’t got no state income tax. I mean here don’t either, but Vegas you got everything there.”

Certainly it’s a long shot that Ramsey would end up with the Raiders, but Ramsey’s comments are part of a bigger storyline that should follow the Raiders to Las Vegas. With no state income tax and plenty of draw to the area, young athletes (more specifically, free agents and UDFA) will undoubtedly show interest in the team and the city.

As for Ramsey, he’s under contract for two more years in Jacksonville. He won’t be a free agent until 2021 and doesn’t have a lot of leverage at this point. If Jacksonville does decide to part ways with arguably the best cornerback in football, it would require a team to give up a top pick and most likely be willing to make Ramsey the highest paid cornerback in the league.

Meanwhile in Oakland, it doesn’t sound like either Gareon Conley or Daryl Worley have a stranglehold on the title of CB1 for the Raiders – but let’s see what they look like when the preseason gets underway.
