Jalen Ramsey understands the Jags won't extend his contract that currently has two years left on the current deal.

The Jacksonville Jaguars corner said Tuesday during mandatory minicamp he's been told he isn't getting a contract extension this year.

The Pro Bowl corner believes he's outperformed his rookie deal but isn't upset he'll have to wait at least one more year before his contract is addressed.

"I'm not down about it or anything like that. I'm blessed," Ramsey said, via Eugene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union.

Ramsey enters the fourth year of his rookie deal, set to earn $3.634 million in base salary. The Jags exercised the fifth-year option for the former No. 5 overall pick, which would pay him $13.7 million in 2020.

With the Jags not addressing his deal, Ramsey has an idea where he'd like to spend the team's money: On draftmate Yannick Ngakoue, who is holding out of minicamp.

"I think Yan has earned a contract. ...I really hope something gets done," he said, via Daniel Popper of The Athletic.
