He's also one of its most outspoken.
Reminded of those comments Thursday - and told that Jaguars defensive coordinator Todd Wash said that anyone who believes Gronkowski is overrated is insane - Ramsey just shrugged.
"I don't think Gronk's good", Ramsey said. He then clarified: "Let me say - I don't think Gronk is as great as people think he is". The Jaguars aren't saying how they're planning to deal with the 6-foot-6, 268-pound Gronkowski, but the 6-foot-1, 208-pound Ramsey will get his share of snaps against him. "Any time Gronk has been matched up with a corner, he's had a very bad game, and that corner has had a very good game".
Tune in to Patriots-Jaguars on WBZ-TV - the home of the New England Patriots!
Gronkowski caught only one pass in the title game before getting knocked out with a concussion.
"No, I definitely would", he said. "I'm sure they will, too". I'm just preparing like I always prepare.
"I think you're there and you're just kind of feeling out everything", Brady said. "Being here throughout the nine years, being under coach Belichick's wing throughout the years, learning from him, learning from the other veteran players here, we really don't get into talks like that".
"If it's one-on-one with him, if it's one-on-one versus anybody else, I've got to bring my game". I don't fear no man, period. So he's going to have to come out there and line up on me, or however it goes. In response to that, Gronkowski has chosen to push aside the chatter with his focus directed toward helping his team win come Sunday afternoon. (Hot take, for sure.) Brady responded Wednesday, "I never want to suck, so I don't want to be in that category". If it happens, it happens. I'm very confident in all of my teammates on the defensive side of the ball. "You gotta play it - I don't believe in having friends on the field", he said. I mean, my brother, my dad, my mom, grandma was out there, like it's on. Right now we're focused on our preparation for the game. So, it's going to be a great environment for football - 4:30 game, so everyone's going to be watching. "After the game is over with all of that is cool". She know that. My grandma knows that. "I love you, but you know that", he said.
"Would she hit me back?" he said.
Ramsey added that granny "might not get up from one of my licks".
You've been warned, Grandma.
