Jalen Ramsey once again is taking shots, this time in an article penned by ESPN’s Mina Kimes, who spent time with the All-Pro cornerback over the summer in Smyrna, Tennessee.
new story: I spent a day in Tennessee with Jalen Ramsey. I don't think I've ever met an athlete whose personality corresponds so closely with the position he plays. https://t.co/BO61ZDtSfd pic.twitter.com/S2EZfnPVVz

The two touched on a variety subjects, including Ramsey’s admiration for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown and Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
But once the discussion turned to the New England Patriots, the cornerback’s complimentary tone made a U-turn on tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Danny Amendola, who signed a two-year deal with the Miami Dolphins during free agency.
When it came to Gronkowski, a four-time All-Pro selection and five-time Pro Bowler, Ramsey also didn’t hold back.
Ramsey pointed out that he asked members of the Jaguars analytical staff to pull numbers on Gronkowski ahead of the AFC Conference Championship Game, and quickly came to a conclusion.
Jalen Ramsey will have opportunities to see Gronkowski and Amendola again during the upcoming season.
The Jaguars play the Patriots in Week 2 and the Dolphins in Week 16. It should be interesting to watch.
