Last month, the Jacksonville Jaguars All-Pro cornerback told ESPN that he thought Gronk was overrated. Registering my involuntary blinking, he course-corrects.
"Yes, he was just yapping at me the whole time and that's why I took him and threw him out of the club", Gronkowski said after the game. As Kimes noted, Gronkowski's catch rate drops from 71 percent to 56 percent when lined up in the slot as opposed to the perimeter.
Ramsey was given a chance to clarify that he wouldn't actually hit his grandmother.
"They wanted to find whatever way they could to keep [Jimmy Garoppolo] around whether it was franchising him, a bridge contract, it didn't work out", said Curran. "I would say usually on his QB sneaks is when he talks trash if he does". Four days ahead of the rematch, Gronkowski was asked about Ramsey's remarks.
"That's some good percentages still. I mean, he's a great player", He added of Ramsey. I've just got to play ball.
"I might be insane, I don't care", the cornerback said of those people who might think he's insane to suggest that Gronkowski is overrated. Depending on the game, depending on the situation, where he is compared to the defensive players.
Ramsey's critical commentary hasn't been limited to Gronkowski. After hemming and hawing a bit he said. Last week Ramsey's Jacksonville Jaguars conquered the New York Giants, earning him kudos from wideout Odell Beckham Jr - They exchanged jerseys at the end of the game as a sign of mutual respect. "So he's going to have to come out there and line up on me". "I'm gonna go out there and do whatever Coach asks me to do, to be honest". I'm just preparing like I always prepare.
"I don't believe in having friends on the field", Ramsey said. "It motivates you to hear that. And I don't think that Brady will probably want to stick around with any place that doesn't want him". I love literally everything about the game, so I have no regrets.
Jalen Ramsey's performative trash-talking in the offseason and preseason is about provided more fodder for National Football League bloggers than just about anything that happened between the 2018 draft and Week 1.
"Oh, definitely during the game on the field". "You're allowed to talk smack back and forth out there on the field, but no, I'm not trying to get a 15-yard penalty for overdoing it or anything". That's not one of my goals.
"If that's how he feels, that's how he feels", Gronkowski said Wednesday. "But, you've got protect yourself, you've got to protect your teammates and you've got to stand up for yourself when it comes to that time".
