Jacksonville Jaguars All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey is excited for the season opening matchup against the New York Giants as it pits him up against Giants’ All-Pro receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

“Let’s get this out the way right now: He’s a good receiver,” Ramsey said, according to ESPN’s Michael DiRocco.

“We all know that. But y’all know me at the same time. Yeah, he’s good. But I’m good, too. If y’all want to say he’s the best at his position; I’m the best at my position, so we’re going to go at it.

“We’re going to give the people a show the first game of the season.”

Ramsey, who never lacks any self confidence, says he will win the matchup against New York’s premier wide receiver.

“He’s going to have some wins; I’m going to have some wins,” Ramsey said. “I just plan on having more wins. That’s the plan I’m going to go in there with.

“I’m going to work my ass off to get to that point. … I’m sure he’s doing that on the other side, too. That’s what y’all ask for. As fans of the game, as NFL, everybody, that’s what y’all asked for. We’re going to give it to you for sure. I know I am.”

Jacksonville Jaguars newly acquired tackle Ereck Flowers, who infamously flopped for his former team the New York Giants, believes that the Jags will present a “better fit” for him than the Giants presented.

“Great opportunities, great team and I’m happy to be here,” Flowers said,according to the Florida Times-Union. “Definitely a fresh start for me. I like it here, man. I think this will be a better fit. They have a great locker room, great guys. I’m grateful to be here.”

While the Giants gave up on Flowers, despite his high draft status, the Jags are hopeful Flowers can contribute.

“Make no mistake about it, if we feel someone can help us or making a change is better for us, then we will do that,” Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said. “That is everywhere. It is hard when the whole team is not playing well.”

Texans’ Bill O’Brien Calls for Jadeveon Clowney to Limit Penalties

Published

Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien is calling on Jadeveon Clowney to clean up the penalties he is getting flagged for this season, and balance the aggressiveness that he brings to the field out with a bit more control.

Clowney has been flagged 8 times during 6 games and has notched 13 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a fumble recovery thus far this season.

“Guys that play like he does – he plays the game in a really attacking way, and so people are going to use their cadence against him and he’s just got to be really focused on that” O’Brien said, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“Then, the taunting call, like somebody asked me if I’m going to – yeah, I’ll talk to him about it, but I’m not going to go down the road of what. I think he just was just kind of messing around with the guy, but you can’t do that. You can’t do that, and that’s what they called and we’ll make sure that he knows not to do that anymore.”
