Jalen Ramsey - Thursday, September 27, 2018

(On if bringing a rookie QB to face the Jaguars defense is like bringing a knife to a gunfight) "If you say so. We still have to prepare. He can make some throws. He was a high draft pick for a reason. We believe in him, their team believes in him, so we have to be prepared and do what we do."

(On if a rookie can be ready for the Jaguars defense) "We are going to see on Sunday."

(On the hat he is wearing) "You like the hat? I'm wearing black, so I had to match it up a little bit. The hats, I did a little partnership with Fanatics and New Era that will be sold in the [Jaguars] team store. We have all the proceeds going to me and my pops' foundation, Ramsey's Reach, for the youth. We have a variety of different colors and combinations. [Jaguars Director of Public Relations] Tad [Dickman] has a little floral going on over there. We have everything. We have the jean look. We have the 'Duval.' There are some more, too. This is just a little small sample we wanted to give you all. We didn't want to give you everything. Just make sure you go to the team store, pick up some hats, pick up some jerseys, pick up all the gear."

(On if he designed the hats) "I helped design them all, yes. We have 2.0 on all of them. Go support. Go show some love."

(On if he would potentially go into fashion design after football) "No, that is not really me. But for these hats, though, that was me."

(On which foundation the hats profits are going towards) "Ramsey's Reach. That is me and my pops'. It's for the youth."

(On if his foundation is for the youth in Jacksonville or Tennessee) "Tennessee and here."

(On if it is frustrating to not have as many takeaways as the defense may like) "Yes, for sure. It is. We have to figure out a way to get back to that. It is going to continue to be a focus for us each week. It is part of the game, though. You can't really get too frustrated about it. You just have to make it an emphasis."

(On if the lack of turnovers could be because teams are aware of how good the defense is) "That may be a little bit of it, but at the end of the day, everyone has to play. We have to find a way and that is just how it goes."

(On if he expects the turnovers to come) "That is what we hope. Hopefully it is sooner rather than later. We will take it however they come and whenever they come."

(On if he agrees with Tashaun Gipson's comments that Gipson is getting the first interception) "I wouldn't agree. But if 'Gip' does, we will all be happy. We just need somebody to pop it off. I think it is going to be myself. I am going to be happy with whoever pops it off and then we are going to get it rolling from that point."

(On how well Tashaun Gipson is playing) "He is playing very well. I feel like 'Gip' was playing well last year as well, he just wasn't getting the credit he deserved. I feel like he started getting the credit he deserved after [we] played a popular tight end and he did his thing on him. I feel like 'Gip' has been doing well the three years we have been here together and especially last year and this year."

(On the challenge the New York Jets receivers pose) "They have speed, [they are] physical. [Robby] Anderson is super-fast. He is a deep threat. [Qunincy] Enunwa, he is basically a running back after he gets the ball. They also have [Jermaine] Kearse who is a good receiver who catches everything that comes his way. They have some good talent. Like I say every week, I think it is more so about us. I feel like we are the best in the NFL and we have to go out there and prove it."

(On if it is tough to learn patience when quarterbacks don't throw his way) "It's just a part of it. It is a part of the game. It is a part of the position that I play. I know my opportunities are limited, so when they do come, I have to make sure I am on my P's and Q's so that I take advantage of them. That is something that I am working on all the time – not getting bored and not letting teams lore me to sleep or anything like that. It is just a part of the game, though."

(On Eric Reid getting signed today) "I think he is a good football player and he deserves to be on a team. Good for him."

(On what Ronnie Harrison has brought to the defense) "He came in, he brought that swag. He has the same mindset as kind of everybody else in the secondary. We have a whole new dynamic with him in there. It is a completely new package we can have. We can have different personnel with Ronnie in the game. Ronnie is physical, can play really well in the box, but also can cover."

(On how versatile the package with Ronnie Harrison is and if they can play against any personnel with that package) "You can to be honest. Any personnel you want to put out there, we can play. That is with a lot of the guys, though."
