Rams News: Jalen Ramsey Donating $1 Million To Purpose Preparatory Academy

Since the Los Angeles Rams acquired star cornerback Jalen Ramsey from the Jacksonville Jaguars, he has been everything they hoped he would be and more.

It’s no secret that he is one of the most talented players in the league on the field, but Ramsey got a bit of a reputation of one of the league’s “bad boys” during his time in Jacksonville, never afraid to speak his mind and go against the grain.

He has caused zero issues since coming to the Rams though, handling his contract situation very maturely despite it being clear he wants a new deal with L.A.

The 25-year-old is also making an outstanding impact in the community, as according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, he is donating $1 million to Purpose Preparatory Academy in Nashville to help children in need receive a proper education:

The Rams organization and its players have been doing outstanding work in the community this year, whether it be helping people in need due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, supporting social justice causes or in Ramsey’s case, kids in need in his hometown of Nashville.

Ramsey is still on his rookie contract, so $1 million is no small amount. He obviously has a big payday looming, but it speaks volumes that he was willing to make this pledge before receiving that long-term security.

Despite no contract extension being agreed to yet, both sides have made it clear they want to get it done, so it seems to only be a matter of time before the Rams lock up their star cornerback long-term.
