Jalen Ramsey's desire to leave the Jacksonville Jaguars apparently stems from a "disrespectful" conversation he had with the team's decision-makers.

In an appearance Thursday on Uninterrupted's "17 Weeks" podcast, the star cornerback explained why he requested a trade away from the Jaguars, though he opted not to name who the discussion was with.

"Some disrespectful things were said on their end that made me definitely walk out and call my agent as soon as I walked out, and I told him, I said, 'It's time; my time is up here in Jacksonville. I want to ask for a trade,'" Ramsey said, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco. "I was truly at peace. I wasn't in a mindset of making a decision while I was angry; I was completely calm. I still stand by my decision to ask for a trade."

Ramsey suited up for Thursday Night Football against the Tennessee Titans despite the fact that he reportedly doesn't expect to be with Jacksonville by Week 4.

The Jaguars apparently considered trading Ramsey last season. The Pro Bowler later said he would ask for an "ungodly" amount of money to re-sign with the Jaguars.

Ramsey admitted that his frustration with Jacksonville's front office, and subsequent desire to leave, has "been building over a little bit of time."

"It has nothing to do with my teammates here - I love my teammates here. It has nothing to do with the city - I love the city here," said Ramsey. "Still doing my charity work here, still out with the fans, signing autographs, taking pictures, whatever. I love the city here, I love my teammates, but it's more so with the front office and the organization."

While the Jaguars no longer are interested in having Ramsey as part of their future, the cornerback reportedly isn't short of suitors.

The Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens, Oakland Raiders, Minnesota Vikings, and Seattle Seahawks have all made substantive inquiries, while nearly every NFL team has contacted the Jaguars about a potential trade.
