Jalen Ramsey is finally playing in the Super Bowl after going through six seasons and two teams in his turbulent NFL career.

“It means a lot to be in this position with this team and with these guys,” Ramsey said on Monday. “I mean obviously this is the highest achievement that you can achieve in our profession, so it means a lot. And I’m super grateful and I’m cherishing all these moments.”

Ramsey, who proclaims himself the NFL’s top defensive back, will play his first Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

He had previously lost the opportunity by only minutes in his second season in the league when his team squandered a 10-point lead in the AFC championship game.

Despite his controversies, such as being arrested in 2018 and having a heated debate with then-coach Doug Marrone in 2019, Ramsey has been every bit the exceptional cornerback and star that the Rams desired. He was tied for the team lead in interceptions with four, while placing sixth on the Rams in tackles with 77. This resulted in his third All-Pro selection and fifth Pro Bowl appearance.

Ramsey’s probable challenge Sunday will be covering up-and-coming superstar wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase of the Cincinnati Bengals.

The 1,455 yards received by Chase in the regular season are the most by a rookie in the NFL, and Chase’s 279 yards receiving in the postseason are the highest ever caught by a rookie.

“I’ve consistently been great over the years,” Ramsey said. “So I’ve shown that I will show up when I need to show up, and that’s what I plan to do again on Sunday.”
