Jacksonville Jaguars star cornerback Jalen Ramsey was a no-show for the team’s voluntary workouts that got underway this week. He was joined by linebacker Telvin Smith as the only two Jaguars players who are not in attendance.
Head coach Doug Marrone didn’t seem to be concerned by the absences, although what else could he say? The workouts as supposedly voluntary.
“It’s a voluntary period; it’s an option,” Marrone said shortly before noon Tuesday during his first media availability of the 2019 offseason program. “I don’t try to concern myself with things that are out of my control. I’m sure they’re both working hard.”
Ramsey is in the final year of his rookie contract, although the Jaguars do have a fifth year option, and wants a new deal before the season starts. It’s unclear at this time if he’s willing to holdout, although you have to assume it is a possibility.
