Not even Jalen Ramsey's grandmother is safe from his trash talk

FOXBORO MA.- SEPTEMBER 12 New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski talks with quarterback Tom Brady during practice at Gillette Stadium

Ramsey spoke to the media for a little less than eight minutes Thursday.

Not all of it was headline-grabbing. "Football is not a game meant to be played being nice to each other ... after the game, that's cool". "I don't believe in having friends on the field". "If my brother, my dad, my mom or my grandma was out there, it's on. It should be a really great game for us to go out and see what we're made of".

"I love the competitiveness. After the game's over with, that's cool".

"I definitely expect him to be covered up on me at least a couple times throughout the game", Gronkowski predicted.

Would she hit you back?

Ramsey added that granny "might not get up from one of my licks".

Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey said last month that Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is "overrated", and he's not backing down.

Ramsey went on to explain why he plays with a chip on his shoulder. He talked a lot in those stories about some National Football League quarterbacks, and he talked in the ESPN article about Gronkowski.

"I don't think Gronk's good", Ramsey said. "Very passionate. So I won't ever try to contain somebody and not let him be himself". Asked Thursday about his comments, Ramsey said he "might be insane".

"Might be insane", Ramsey said.

"I never want to suck", Brady told reporters Wednesday when asked to respond to Ramsey's assessment.

Gronkowski's problem, to hear Ramsey tell it, is simple.

"He's good", Ramsey said. "We've just got to go out there and play".

"I think it raises everybody's game as long as it doesn't get to the point where you do something stupid", Brady said.

"All right then", Ramsey said. "I don't fear no man". I'm sure I'm going to have opportunities to go versus him.

It is simply a ploy for Ramsey to get inside the opponent's head as he has voiced his opinions about several notable offensive players around the league where he has bashed their abilities on the field. Nor would he have been expected to.

"That's some good percentages still", the 29-year-old Gronkowski said when asked about Ramsey's assertion that the tight end's catch percentage drops from 71 percent to 56 percent when matched up against a cornerback. "If it happens, it happens". I'm very confident in all of my teammates on the defensive side of the ball.

"I'll do my job and hold it down when I'm there".

So, Ramsey's pre-Patriots media availability essentially was like so many of his media availabilities. So, it's going to be a great environment for football - 4:30 game, so everyone's going to be watching.
