The Jacksonville Jaguars "currently have no deal in the works" for star cornerback Jalen Ramsey, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

NFL Network colleague Mike Garafolo added that interested suitors view Jacksonville's asking price as "too high," and the Jaguars reportedly have no plans of softening their demands.

Albert Breer of The Monday Morning Quarterback previously reported the Jaguars were asking teams for two first-round picks as "a starting point" in a deal:

There were reportedly no shortage of trade talks involving the two-time Pro Bowler last week:

Per ESPN's Josina Anderson, Ramsey was not anticipating being a Jaguar come Week 4. But as of now, a swap does not appear imminent.

Ramsey's trade request went public in the aftermath of a Week 2 loss to the Houston Texans, a game that saw the defensive back involved in a heated sideline exchange with head coach Doug Marrone. Rapoport later noted, though, that Ramsey's issue was with executive vice president of football operations Tom Coughlin and management, not Marrone.

Ramsey detailed the situation Thursday via the 17 Weeks podcast:

With no deal completed before Week 3, Ramsey played in Jacksonville's 20-7 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night. He recorded nine tackles in the win.

The 24-year-old has two years and $17.3 million remaining on his rookie contract.
