The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded Jalen Ramsey to the Los Angeles Rams for two first-round picks and one fourth-round pick. 

When the news was announced on Tuesday night, it was a gut-punch to many Eagles fans, who were hoping Ramsey could solve Philadelphia's secondary problems. Ultimately, Howie Roseman seemingly decided Ramsey's price was too rich. 

Eagles center Jason Kelce joined Angelo Cataldi and the 94WIP Morning Show on Wednesday and was asked if he was disappointed Roseman didn't land the star cornerback. 

"No, from the sounds of it Howie did just about everything he could to try and get him and it didn't work out," Kelce said. "It's not like—the Rams gave him what, two first rounds and a fourth rounder? It wasn't like they got him on a steal and Howie didn't offer them anything. I've got supreme confidence in that guy, he makes some incredible things happen and I'm sure he's still working really hard to make sure we have the best team possible. I know that's always the case."

It is possible the Eagles make a move for another cornerback, but with Ramsey off of the market, the only elite-level player that is even potentially available is Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson—and that feels like a long shot.
