Tom Coughlin released a statement today insisting that the Jaguars plan to compete this year, even though they just traded Jalen Ramsey to the Rams for two first-round picks and a fourth-round pick.
“Given the situation with Jalen, we made this decision based on what we thought is in the best interest of the Jacksonville Jaguars, for this season and well into the future,” Coughlin said. “We feel the trade that we struck with the Rams gives us great value for the next two drafts, and we remain very confident that our team today will compete this season for a division title. Jalen was a productive player, but the time came to move on and we wish him and his family the best in Los Angeles.”
In the end the Jaguars received a return of investment that teams get for a QB or the Number one Overall Pick in the Draft.
