Although known for his defense, Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey went on the offensive in support of teammate Allen Robinson.

Ramsey tweeted at the Jaguars' official Twitter account on Monday to let it know that he wants the soon-to-be free agent wide receiver to remain on the team.

"@Jaguars do the right thing please! #ComebackPOY" the 23-year-old Ramsey tweeted on behalf of Robinson.

Ramsey wasn't done there, as he added that he wanted the team to pay fellow cornerback Aaron Colvin.

"Oh & we gotta keep @AColvin_22 too! Give him the bag @Jaguars," Ramsey wrote.

Robinson feels that he's right on target with his recovery after tearing his ACL in his left knee on the third play from scrimmage in the Jaguars' season-opening 29-7 win over the Houston Texans.

The 24-year-old Robinson told the Florida Times-Union last month that he would pass a physical by the time free agency rolls around in March. He led the Jaguars in receptions (73), receiving yards (883) and receiving touchdowns (six) in 2016.

Robinson has totaled 202 career catches for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns since being selected by Jacksonville in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Quarterback Blake Bortles spread the wealth this past season by throwing to wide receivers Marqise Lee, Allen Hurns and rookies Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook.

As for Colvin, he registered 45 tackles and did not record an interception this past season. The 26-year-old was selected by the Jaguars in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
