Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey is back on the recruiting trail this offseason.
Shortly after wide receiver Dez Bryant was released by the Dallas Cowboys on Friday, Ramsey tweeted at the former Pro Bowl player in order to convince him to sign with the Jaguars.
Ramsey has been quick to recruit in the past. He has consistently been vocal about his desire to play with fellow Florida State alumni and made it known that he wanted Jacksonville to re-sign wide receiver Allen Robinson in free agency.
Robinson left for Chicago as a free agent and the Jaguars seemingly replaced him with former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Donte Moncrief, who received a one-year, $9.6 million deal in March.
The Jaguars also re-signed former second-round pick Marqise Lee to a four-year, $34 million deal during free agency. With Lee and Moncrief at the top of the depth chart, Bryant may not make sense for the Jaguars.
While Bryant would probably be an upgrade over both Lee and Moncrief, he would also presumably cost quite a lot of cash.
The Jaguars currently have some young talent developing behind their starters, as Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole both flashed in major roles last season.
Would the Jaguars be willing to add a massive salary while also stunting the growth of their young, cheap players? That would seem to be an unlikely choice for the franchise.
That said, Bryant is only 29 and is a former three-time Pro Bowl selection. While the last three years haven't panned out well for Bryant (150 catches for 2,035 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns in 38 games), the threat of his talent would likely open up lanes for the passing and running attacks.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound wide receiver will certainly be a player to watch on the open market. Ramsey's recruiting pitch will mean very little if the Jaguars aren't interested in adding the veteran.
