Jalen Ramsey isn't afraid of Rob Gronkowski: 'I don't fear no man'

FOXBORO -- As expected, when Jalen Ramsey spoke to the media Thursday in Jacksonville, his comments regarding Rob Gronkowski were brought up. 

"I don't think Gronk's good. Let me say -- I don't think Gronk is as great as people think he is," Ramsey told ESPN this offseason. "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."

Ramsey isn't backing down, even after his own defensive coordinator called him crazy for saying Gronkowski is overrated.

"I might be crazy, I don't care," Ramsey said to reporters.

The Jaguars cornerback admitted Gronkowski is good, but he's not afraid of him.

"He good. He good, now," Ramsey said. "We ain't going to get it twisted. He's good, but you saying this to me, is it supposed to, like, bring fear to me or something? ... I don't fear no man. Period. He's going to have to come out there and line up on me, or however it goes. He has to play us this year.”

Perhaps, Ramsey is referring to Gronkowski suffering a concussion in last year's AFC title game.

The Patriots tight end didn't take the bait when he spoke on Wednesday, but did say he uses trash-talk as motivation.

Sunday afternoon should be interesting, especially if these two get matched up 1-on-1.
