The Jacksonville Jaguars give a star defender and another key player a warning to cool off.
Cornerback Jalen Ramsey and defensive end Dante Fowler were suspended by the team for violating a player's rules and behaviors, the Jaguars announced in a release. The team did not announce how long the suspensions would last.
On Sunday, a Florida Times Union Reporters tweeted a video of a confrontation during the exercise between Fowler and fellow defensive end Yannick Ngakoue. At the end of the video, Ramsey told the reporter to stop the recording.
Ramsey later sent a tweet attacking the reporter and other media members.
Ramsey, 23, was an outspoken presence for the Jaguars during his first two years with the crew. After helping Jacksonville beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC quarter-finals, he guaranteed that his side would not only advance to the Super Bowl, but win as well.
Ramsey was an all-pro pick in 2017 after catching four passes and was one of the critical numbers on the top rankings of the Jaguars pass defense.
Fowler, 24, was inducted on Saturday from the list of physically challenged athletes and enters a crucial season. Third place in the NFL Draft 2015 is in the final year of his rookie contract, after the team no longer wanted to take his fifth option.
He has already been suspended for the first regular season game for violation of the NFL's personal code of conduct.
