Few teams can afford such a haul in picks and cap space, and the Raiders are one of them. However, since Clowney's situation required a team not to be able to change his contract situation until the offseason, it made his trade desire drop for many teams - the Eagles included. If the Ravens feel they have a real shot at the Super Bowl in 2019 and 2020, they should pull the trigger immediately.

Ramsey is in his fourth season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The two have made peace with what happened and it does not mean that Hill would not want to see Ramsey in the Chiefs' secondary. A lot of people say he comes with a lot of baggage, but he is one of the key parts of our team.

While Ramsey is under contract through the 2020 season, any team interested in the defender will have to be ready within the next couple of years to make him the highest-paid cornerback in the league.

While a year later in a highly publicized GQ article, Ramsey gave his unfiltered opinions on almost every quarterback in the league criticizing their shortcomings. The Jags lost in the last 30 seconds after head coach Doug Marrone went for the win with a two-point conversion that ultimately failed, leading to his team falling just short of its first win. They supposedly have asked the Eagles for Zach Ertz. But just how serious is their interest in the showstopping cornerback?

It's very likely Ramsey would aim to top Howard's $15 million AAV, and Norman's guaranteed money considering the way he arrived at training camp. With Ramsey now asking for a trade, Ngakoue was asked Tuesday about the possibility the Jaguars might not retain what once seemed like the future core of the defense.

The Jacksonville Jaguars explained that they would want "at least a first round pick" in return for Ramsey. After all, they were no stranger to making offers to Los Angeles in exchange for Melvin Gordon.

Ramsey is also looking to be the highest paid cornerback in the National Football League, something that might be hard to do with Carson Wentz's contract extension and the Eagles desire to build around their signal caller with younger and cheaper talent. It seems like they'll be able to get what they want although they're waiting for the ideal deal to come around. While the Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons will, in fact, play this year, being in different conferences would make Atlanta calling intriguing to the Jaguars. They are weak at corner and Ramsey would help immensely.
