Miami Dolphins cornerback Jalen Ramsey has become overrated
One of the splash moves made this offseason came by way of the Miami Dolphins when they dealt for former Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Aside from his rookie campaign in 2016, Ramsey has earned a Pro Bowl bid in every other one of his seasons in the NFL.
The two-time All Pro is coming off somewhat of a down year, as he gave up a higher completion percentage, more touchdowns, more yards per target and completion, and a higher quarterback rating allowed than each of his last three seasons.
In fact, Ramsey gave up more touchdowns last year (five) than he ever has in his career. Ramsey has also been beaten deep more recently than in years past. Last season, he gave up 435 air yards, which was the most he has given up since 2019.
Now, his deal is structured in a way where his cap hit is only $2.9 million in 2023. However, next year that number skyrockets to $27.2 million. For that type of price, Ramsey better step it up. If he still thinks he's the best corner in football, he's got another thing coming. In fact, he should look across the division at those New York Jets and the up-and-coming Sauce Gardner.
