Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey isn't considering holding out from training camp in order to force a new extension ahead of a contract year.

"The Rams know where I stand and that's all that matters at the end of the day," Ramsey said, according to Kevin Patra of NFL.com. "It will get handled. They have been in contact with my agent. They are on the same page. They know what's up. I know what's up. I'm going to let them handle that. I can't worry about that. I can control what I can control.

"Everybody knew what type of situation it was going to be once they traded for me. It doesn't need to be talked about that much. It will get handled. I will let them handle the business side of it. I will focus on football."

Ramsey, who is set to make $13.7 million in 2019 on his fifth-year option, is widely expected to reset the cornerback market with his first NFL extension. Philadelphia Eagles standout Darius Slay currently tops the position at $16.7 million per year, according to Spotrac.

The Rams traded two first-round picks to the Jacksonville Jaguars for Ramsey midway through last season. The star corner should have significant leverage in negotiations due to that enormous investment.

Ramsey was angling for a big-money deal prior to the 2019 campaign, going as far as turning up to the Jaguars' training camp in a Brinks truck.

He was named to his third straight Pro Bowl in 2019 after racking up one interception, five pass defenses, and 50 total tackles in 12 appearances (11 starts).
