Todd Gurley is going to bat for his teammate … telling TMZ Sports the L.A. Rams should pay Jalen Ramsey the fat contract he deserves ASAP!!!
“He’s a Pro Bowler!” Gurley told us in NYC on Friday. “Pro Bowler, man.”
L.A. traded a HUGE haul to the Jaguars for Ramsey earlier this season to get him to Hollywood … but the corner has repeatedly said he won’t play in 2020 without a new deal.
And, Jalen’s made no bones about how much he wants in his new contract — remember when he showed up to Jacksonville camp last July in a Brinks truck???
Yeah, dude’s looking for THAT kind of money!!!
But, when we asked Gurley — who was leaving the NBA store after buying a 76ers hat to show support for Michael Rubin — about it all, he told us Ramsey’s worth every penny of it … saying, “Of course he is!”
There’s more … we also asked Todd about the shine coming off of Sean McVay after his Super Bowl season a year ago — and Gurley says he’s not worried about his head coach at all.
As for fired Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, Gurley wished him the best … and says he’s sure the guy will land on his feet somewhere.
