Jacksonville Jaguars All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey was unusually quiet Thursday , three days before one of the most anticipated matchups of his NFL career.He was humble. He was focused. He was more of a team player than a look-at-me guy.He seemed somewhat out of character. But the Jaguars probably liked it after weeks of unrest surrounding their star defensive back.Ramsey screamed profanities at media members during training camp, got suspended for a week and then created a stir by calling out several quarterbacks in one interview and blasted a few more players in another .More Jacksonville Jaguars newsJets’ Darnold throws 3 more picks in 29-15 loss at JaguarsRams get CB Jalen Ramsey from Jaguars for 3 draft picksBridgewater now 4-0 as starter after Saints top Jaguars 13-6Jaguars once elite defense struggles as Gardner Minshew, DJ Chark build chemistryLeonard Fournette runs for career-high as Jaguars mount comeback to beat BroncosWith the season opener against the New York Giants and receiver standout Odell Beckham Jr. looming, Ramsey clammed up.“Looking forward to it,” said Ramsey, who was added to the injury report because of ankle soreness. “Looking forward to beginning the whole season with the whole team. A lot of people are going to try to make it about me and (Beckham) specifically. That’s not what it’s about. Football is a team game. There’s going to be 11 guys out there for us, 11 guys out there for them. We’re going to have to come together and do what we’ve got to do to try to get a win.”It wasn’t what anyone expected from the outspoken Ramsey.Beckham insisted Wednesday that Ramsey won’t get under his skin and there won’t be a repeat of his fight with cornerback Josh Norman in 2016. The three-time All-Pro said he won’t take Ramsey’s bait.Asked whether that’s easier said than done, Ramsey declined to offer much.“I don’t know,” he said. “Again, it’s not about me. It’s about the team.”Ramsey downplayed his ability to talk trash, even though he got into a public spat with now-retired NFL receiver Steve Smith in 2016 and upset Cincinnati receiver A.J. Green so much that Green grabbed Ramsey around the neck and slammed him to the ground last year.“My play is what really gets people talking, to be honest with you , and that’s just extra on top,” Ramsey said. “I’m going to be me. I don’t think that’s something that we need to continue to talk about week in and week in. I’m going to me.”Ramsey did acknowledge that he’s fine with playing the role of villain.“What people who don’t know me think about me doesn’t affect me, how I live my life, how I go about being who I am,” said Ramsey, who became a father for the first time in late July. “I’m not going to change because somebody doesn’t like me. There’s a bunch or more people in the world.”Many of them will tune in Sunday to watch Ramsey line up across from Beckham, who signed a $95 million extension that made him the highest-paid receiver in the league.“I think anytime you get two guys like that, that are as big of stars as they are, everybody wants to watch it,” Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles said. “We’ll get our corrections made (on the sideline) and make sure everything’s set offensively for the next series and peek up there as much as possible to see what’s going on with them. I know they’ll both be ready and fired up. It’ll be fun to watch.”Ramsey surely will have a different demeanor once the game starts. And if he shuts down Beckham, he probably will be even more boisterous.After all, this is the same guy who made it clear two weeks ago that he was “unapologetic” about anything he said about other NFL players. He also opened camp talking about facing Beckham in the opener.“Let’s get this out the way right now ,” Ramsey said in late July after reporting to camp a few days late . “He is a good receiver. We all know that. But you all know me at the same time. Yeah, he’s good. But I’m good, too. If you want to say he’s the best at his position, I’m the best at my position, so we are going to go at it. We are going to give the people a show the first game of the season.“He is going to have some wins. I am going to have some wins. I just plan on having more wins. That is the plan I am going to go in there with. … That is what you all asked for as fans of the game, as (fans of) the NFL, everybody. That is what you all asked for. We are going to give it to you, for sure. I know I am.” FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Jalen Ramsey has approached trash talking — both dishing it out and receiving it — with open arms for most of his football career.When initiating it he’s been an equal opportunity offender, even when his words were aimed at possibly two of the best players to ever play their respective positions.Ramsey sent ripples across the league last month when he was asked by “ESPN The Magazine” for his opinion of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and said: “I don’t think Gronk is as great as people think he is.”The comments came months after the Jaguars‘ 24-20 loss to the Patriots in last season’s AFC championship game, in which Gronkowski caught only one pass before being knocked out of the game with a concussion in the first half.That same game also saw Ramsey briefly exchange words with reigning MVP Tom Brady during pregame warmups.It’s all added extra fuel to the budding rivalry as New England prepares to visit Jacksonville on Sunday.“If that’s how he feels, that’s how he feels ,” Gronkowski said Wednesday. “It’s a big game. … I’m sure I’m gonna have opportunities go against him. And I’m sure he’s gonna have opportunities to go against me.”For his part, Ramsey has never backed down from his comments.“I don’t live my life with regrets, man. Things happen. I said what I said,” Ramsey said after his comments went viral.“I love the competitiveness. I love the trash talking. I love the challenge. I love literally everything about the game, so I have no regrets. … Hey, I’m me: Unapologetic.”Ramsey’s teammates said his often-biting words are what make Ramsey the player he is.Trash talking is, “part of his game,” defensive lineman Calais Campbell said.“I tell him all the time ‘Man, hey, whatever you do just make sure that we’re gonna back you up…We’re gonna be there for you,'” Campbell said. “But I have nothing but confidence in Jalen. He’s a very smart guy … Very passionate. So I won’t ever try to contain somebody and not let him be himself.”Ramsey was a first-team All-Pro in his second year in the league last season, but had a relatively quiet AFC title game against New England. He finished with just two tackles as Brady engineered late-game heroics to erase a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit.Ramsey said recently that he thinks the biggest reason for the Jaguars losing that game was that they became too conservative.Of the talent of Brady , who exploited that conservatism, Ramsey told “GQ” magazine that he puts him in the category of quarterbacks who don’t “suck.”“I never want to suck,” Brady said with a smile Wednesday. “So I never want to be in that category.”Brady is expecting “an emotional environment” on Sunday against a defense that he considers one of the best in the AFC. He added that he thinks Ramsey is “a great young player.” Brady said a little trash talk is part of the game.“I think it raises everybody’s game, as long as it doesn’t get to point where you do something stupid,” Brady said. “I think emotion in football is critical.”Jacksonville coach Doug Marrone said that any conversations he’s had with Ramsey about his tendency to speak his mind would remain private.But Marrone was also quick to offer praise for both Gronkowski and Brady, whom he said were possibly the best to play the game at their positions.He said he isn’t concerned about Ramsey’s comments providing the Patriots bulletin board material.“I mean, it is what it is,” Marrone said. “We’re all men and we’ve got to stand by what we say and you’ve got to speak for yourself and be able to do that. We’ve just got to go out there and play.”Said Gronkowski: “I feel like this game you gotta keep your head on a swivel and be ready for anything.”Notes: Rookie RB Sony Michel spoke to reporters for the first time since injuring his knee during training camp. He was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and said he was “doing all I can do” to be back in uniform for Sunday’s game. “My mindset is to prepare as if I’m playing,” he said. Michel, who was taken 31st overall in April’s draft, is one of two Patriot first-round picks on the mend. Tackle Isaiah Wynn (selected 23rd overall) was lost for the season after suffering a torn Achilles tendon in the preseason. RB Rex Burkhead remains in the concussion protocol after taking a blow to the head in last week’s opener.
