JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - On Sundays, Jalen Ramsey is responsible for shutting down the opposing team’s best receiver. Wednesday morning the Jaguars cornerback revealed what will be the most important assignment of his life. 

Ramsey tweeted that he is now the father of a baby girl.

The Jaguars veterans reported for training camp on Wednesday and Ramsey says that for the time being he’ll remain in Tennessee to spend time with his family and new baby girl. 

“This was something that we knew about,” said Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone. “Jalen made me aware of this about six of seven months ago, that this could be a situation that comes up. We’ve been in constant communication. Basically he just wants to make sure that baby and mom are ok. Once they’re ok and settled we expect him to come back here. We don’t have an exact timeframe, but we want to make sure that there’s a balance. Family is important.”
