Ramsey on Gronk? Expect a little of everything from the Jaguars

0 Comment

Linebackers Telvin Smith and Myles Jack, safeties Barry Church and Tashaun Gipson, and cornerback Jalen Ramsey are likely to all get reps against the 6-foot-6, 268-pound Gronkowski. Smith or Jack could get him with safety help over the top. Gipson might draw him in certain nike jersey cheap

Or the Jaguars could go unconventional and put Ramsey -- regarded as one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL -- on Gronkowski one-on-one. Bet on their best to limit one of the best tight ends in NFL history at TIAA Bank Field.3

"This is definitely a tough matchup because he's a big, physical guy," said Gipson, who had his snaps against Gronkowski in last year's AFC Championship Game. "Catch radius is tough. Anytime you're dealing with a guy like that, it's always tough. You throw up a prayer and a wish, [and] it's a good likelihood he might come down with it, so it's always tough playing guys like nike nfl jerseys wholesale

"Just like last year, we've got a good game plan. I would like to tell you, but I can't. But just know, just like last year, we've got guys that we're comfortable with covering, and we're going to definitely try to take advantage of our matchups and take advantage of our opportunities when we get a chance."

Ramsey might have unintentionally tipped part of the Jaguars' plan, however. When responding to a question about Gronkowski being the best tight end in NFL history, part of his answer included this: "He's going to have to come out there and line up on me, or however it goes."

Regardless of how the Jaguars cover Gronkowski, Gipson said the most important thing is to keep Gronkowski from making big plays. No long receptions in the seam. No jump balls or back-shoulder catches in the end zone. Limit the damage.
