of football operations Tom Coughlin made some headlines this week when he said that every player on the team should be at the teams voluntary offseason workouts.Cornerback Jalen Ramsey and linebacker Telvin Smith havent been in Jacksonville and Coughlins comments drew a response from the NFLPA that the Collective Bargaining Agreements definition of voluntary is the same as the actual definition of voluntary.On Friday Womens Abry Jones Jersey , Ramseys agent David Mulugheta offered up a response on Twitter that said Ramsey is exactly where Jalen should be during his off season and that the team was fully aware that hed be absent ahead of time. Ramsey replied to that tweet with one of his own.
Fully aware & voluntary meaning I dont HAVE to be there BUT they know the EXACT REASONS I am not. My teammates know its ALL love & know Ill be ready when its time! 💯 https://t.co/NASgnu6egT Jalen Ramsey (@jalenramsey) April 19, 2019
Contract issues can lead to offseason absences and Ramsey is eligible for an extension for the first time in his career, but didnt take part in the teams voluntary work last season to train at his fathers facility in Nashville. Barring word to the contrary, it seems hes following the same script this time around. The much-maligned quarterback is learning a lot under his new head coach, Sean McVay." Blake Bortles believes he will once again be an NFL starter in the future New,19commentsThe much-maligned quarterback is learning a lot under his new head coach Lerentee McCray Jersey , Sean McVay. EDTWhile the Blake Bortles era is over in Jacksonville, Bortles signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Los Angeles Rams for the 2019 season. This gives Bortles the chance to learn under offensive mastermind Sean McVay, while also taking pressure off of him as he transitions to a backup role behind Jared Goff. Bortles feels like he is learning a lot under McVays tutelage. In fact, he recently told the Los Angeles Times that he has really been enjoying the experience, and that McVays coaching style is unlike anything hes experienced before. To be clear Womens Calais Campbell Jersey , I dont think that was a shot at Jacksonvilles coaching staff or anything of that nature, but rather Bortles is saying that McVay may have a better way of connecting with him. McVay also seems confident in Bortles if he ever needs to step in for Goff: Bortles has also stated that the quarterback room which also includes Bortles former understudy, Brandon Allen is very comfortable with each other, and that the group freely communicates with one another. While Bortles understands his role as a backup in Los Angeles, and knows that hes not likely to get an opportunity there, he is hoping that he can take what he learns from McVay and Goff and once again become an NFL starter one day. A bold proclamation for a quarterback with his track record http://www.thejaguarslockerroom.com/authentic-dede-westbrook-jersey , but maybe if McVay truly is the quarterback whisperer than that situation can come to fruition for The BOAT. The situation in L.A. does sound ideal for Bortles, though. He is still just 27-years-old and can learn behind one of the best young coaching/quarterback duos (if not the best) in the league. He also wont have to worry about injury. He will be an unrestricted free agent at seasons end and can sign with a quarterback-needy team, if a franchise is willing to take a risk on the former No. 3 overall pick. Given Bortles struggles in Jacksonville, a lot of Jaguars fans are going to have a rather biased opinion of Bortles. But Ill ask anyway:
