Josh Allen-Jalen Ramsey Feud Continues After Bills QB Autographs Photo In Jab At Jaguars CB
Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen shot back at Jacksonville Jaguars corner Jalen Ramsey this week. Ramsey is known as one of the NFL’s loudest stars and has a tendency to talk about his opponents before games. Allen must have had it on his mind while autographing a photo of himself on Thursday.
Allen wrote, “Hey Ramsey … Am I still trash?” under the photo, which showed him celebrating a touchdown during a 24-21 win over the Jaguars last November. Allen didn’t shy away from the autograph. When asked about it, he said that he did, in fact, sign it and that the shot at Ramsey came at the request of a fan.
But Ramsey got word of the autograph and shot back. The cornerback tweeted: “Lol thank you for answering for me @BigCatCountry #YES tf he thought!”

The comments originally stem from an interview the two-time Pro Bowler did with GQ Magazine last August. When asked about Allen, he called him “trash.” Allen said he didn’t really care about the comment and then before the team’s November meeting that he “couldn’t care less” what Ramsey thought about him. The 22-year-old Allen was drafted by the Bills with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. The QB started 11 games as a rookie, completing 52.8 percent of his passes for 2,074 yards, 10 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Ramsey’s Jaguars had hoped to reach the AFC Championship Game this season. Instead, they collapsed. In 2017, they won their division and finished 10-6. The next season, they went 5-11 and finished in last place in the AFC South. Ramsey’s insults mean a lot less. The team is now debating between staying with quarterback Blake Bortles or trying to find a new successor. Ramsey hopes to get a second All-Pro nod in 2019.
