Ramsey has remorse for not getting 'money's worth' vs Green

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Talkative Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey was more eager to chat than usual on Wednesday. He even had to sit down for this one.

The second-year pro dispelled rumors, discussed his emotions and delivered even more trash talk in his first public comments since he was ejected for instigating a fight with Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green.

Ramsey offered no apologies during the 20 minutes he spent explaining everything that happened in the first half of Jacksonville's latest victory. He did, however, have plenty of remorse for not getting "my money's worth" in an altercation that resulted in both players getting ejected.

"If I knew I was going to get kicked out, I would have got active," Ramsey said. "It's cool. Now I know what to do in that situation. If I'm ever in that situation again, best believe I'm going to get active out there."

Ramsey acknowledged walking to the visitors' locker room after halftime in an attempt to continue things with Green. He was turned away by several security personnel.

Ramsey also denied that his mother had to be called to calm him down as well as reports that he went over the line in talking smack with Green during the first two quarters.

"It's rumors out there that I said some deep, some personnel stuff," Ramsey said. "I'm going to let y'all know that's not true. I get out, I do my thing, I talk ... But I don't go personal. I don't talk about nobody's wife, nobody's kids, nobody's family. I don't do that."

Ramsey obviously said something that prompted the mild-mannered Green to grab him around the neck, throw him to the ground and start throwing punches.

"I told him almost every play that he was weak, that he was soft," Ramsey said. "He just can't handle the truth. It's facts. I told him his time was almost up. I told him that it was easy, which it was. He had one catch for 6 yards.

"I was just out there spitting facts to him. He got mad."

The NFL said Monday that Green would not be suspended for his actions.

Ramsey was stunned to learn he had been "kicked out for not doing anything."

"I went up to one of the refs and asked him straight up, 'Why am I getting ejected?'" Ramsey said. "He was like, 'To be honest, Jalen, I don't know.' That's exactly what he said, quote for quote."

Ramsey also said he has been told he won't be fined for what happened in the 23-7 victory.

Ramsey and Green haven't spoken since, but Ramsey insisted Green would "see me in the offseason."

It's not the first or last time Ramsey has talked smack. He got into a heated back-and-forth with former Baltimore receiver Steve Smith and was ejected last year fighting with Oakland receiver Johnny Holton.

"My reputation is what I'm out there putting on that field, playing some good ball, doing what I've got to do, taking receivers out of their game, locking receivers up, helping my team win games at the end of the day," Ramsey said. "So, yeah, I'm cool with the rep I'm getting. I don't mind it at all."

Also Wednesday, Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette called his one-game benching "just another lesson that I have to learn and grow up from."

Coach Doug Marrone made the rookie inactive against the Bengals for violating a team rule. Fournette watched from the sideline and later apologized on Twitter.

"We just had a misunderstanding," Fournette said. "That's all. That's out the way now. Did my time, did my punishment and now we're on to the L.A. Chargers."
