Khan is a big fan of Ramsey and may well be the main reason why the team did not respond to commercial demand made twice by Pro Bowler. We questioned the legitimacy of Ramsey's back injury, and head coach Doug Marrone did not really help Ramsey by answering these questions.
Everything seems to indicate that Ramsey still wants to be exchanged, but perhaps his conversation with Khan helped to ease some tensions. The Jaguars are 2-3 years old and are still very much alive in the South AFC with the way rookie Gardner Minshew played, so you can understand why they would rather keep Ramsey.
