Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey made a loud, pointed arrival to training camp on Wednesday.

The fourth-year cornerback pulled up in front of the stadium in an armoured truck, with a hype man who gave Ramsey an introduction through a megaphone to a small crowd.

“This man’s coverage is so good, he could have his own mobile phone service,” the man said.

“The man’s so good, they [gonna] give him is own jail. Call it Jalen County, because these receivers are on 24-hour lockdown.”

As Ramsey jumped out of the back of the truck, carrying several bags, the man said, “It’s time to get that money!”

Ramsey had hoped for a contract extension this offseason but said he was informed the Jaguars would not be giving him one. Ramsey is set to earn $US3.6 million this season and had said he felt he had outplayed his rookie contract. Ramsey in June mentioned Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue, who is now holding out of training camp to get a new contract.

“I think I’m in a similar situation as Yan, as where I feel like I have outplayed my rookie contract and I feel I’ve earned a new contract,” Ramsey said.

The Jaguars picked up the fifth-year option on Ramsey, worth $US13.7 million in 2020. They could use the franchise tag on him afterward if they do not agree to an extension next offseason.

Ramsey joked on Twitter about how much money he would ask for on his next deal.

“At the end of the day, it’s not the end of the world,” Ramsey said of not getting an extension in June. “I’m tremendously blessed. I’m so blessed. I’m not down on it or anything like that at all, but that is the circumstance. That is what I’ve been told.”
