PITTSFORD — Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey hasn't been shy about sharing his opinion on Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen.
In May, he retweeted a video of Allen throwing at OTAs, calling it "a pick waiting to happen," and, in a recent interview with GQ, he expanded on that opinion when asked about this year's rookie quarterback class.
"I think (Buffalo Bills draft pick Josh) Allen is trash," Ramsey told GQ's Clay Skipper. "I don't care what nobody say. He's trash. And it's gonna show too. That's a stupid draft pick to me. We play them this year, and I'm excited as hell. I hope he's their starting quarterback. He played at Wyoming. Every time they played a big school—like, they played Iowa State, which is not a big school in my opinion because I went to Florida State, and he threw five interceptions, and they lost by a couple touchdowns or something like that.✞ He never beat a big school. If you look at his games against big schools, it was always hella interceptions, hella turnovers. It's like: Yo, if you're this good, why couldn't you do better? He fits that mold, he's a big, tall quarterback. Big arm, supposedly. I don't see it, personally."
As pointed out in an editors note in the story, Allen never played Iowa State while at Wyoming. He did throw two interceptions in a 24-3 loss to Iowa. He threw five interceptions once as a sophomore against Nebraska.
Allen brushed aside the comments when asked after practice on the final day of Bills training camp at St. John Fisher College.
"That's the first I heard of it," Allen said. "He's not on my team. He's not my teammate. ... It doesn't bother me one bit. I care about my teammates and what my teammates think of me."
Allen wasn't the only signal-caller criticized by the two-year pro. Also in Ramsey's crosshairs was Joe Flacco, Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Ryan and Jimmy Garoppolo.
