Jacksonville Jaguars star man Jalen Ramsey will suit up for the team’s Thursday night game against big rivals Tennessee despite the cornerback asking to be traded after a fall-out with coach Doug Marrone.

Ramsey, one of the best cornerbacks in the league, asked for a trade after a sideline set-to with Marrone during Jacksonville’s defeat to Houston last week, which saw them drop to 0-2 for the season.

The Jags have activated a fifth-year option in Ramsey’s rookie contract, but the player is wanting to leave Jacksonville and seek out pastures new.

His team want at least a first round pick in exchange for the talented Ramsey, who has said that he has no ill feelings towards the team or Marrone.

Head coach Marrone echoed those sentiments as he confirmed that Ramsey would indeed play against bitter rivals the Titans despite his trade request.

"I stay out of that," Marrone said. "I stay out of contracts, stay out of that stuff, and my focus is on the guys that are playing, and he's playing and he's on the team. I don't get involved in that."

"Jalen and I have always had a good, open relationship where we've always been able to talk. We sat down yesterday and we talked about what's gone on as far as he and I.

“It's like anything else in this profession: It's behind us now. His focus is on playing and doing the best job for his teammates and my job is to do the best for the team."

It is thought that the Jaguars could well trade Ramsey on Friday after he has played against the Titans – who ironically could well be his next team after he previously identified them as a team he’d like to play for.

There will be no shortage of takers for a player of his calibre, with much depending on what teams are willing to offer and how much salary cap space they have available.

The New England Patriots, as always, have been mooted, while the Kansas City Chiefs are betting favourites with some bookmakers – the team has everything to contend again for the Super Bowl except a stand-out defensive star.

The Philadelphia Eagles, Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers have also been mentioned but almost every team with funds available will be on the phone to Jaguars management over the next 24 hours.
