Ramsey called Allen "trash" during an offseason interview with GQ magazine. On Tuesday, the 24-year-old Ramsey stood by his comment.
"Everybody who knows me knows why I was so hard on him," Ramsey said. "If you don't know me, that's on you. If y'all look deep into it, y'all can figure out why I was so harsh."
Ramsey was indeed harsh in assessing Allen, who was the seventh overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft.
"I think Allen is trash," Ramsey said in the piece that was published on Aug. 15. "I don't care what nobody say. He's trash. And it's gonna show too. That's a stupid draft pick to me. We play them this year, and I'm excited as hell. I hope he's their starting quarterback. He played at Wyoming. Every time they played a big school -- like, they played Iowa State, which is not a big school in my opinion because I went to Florida State, and he threw five interceptions, and they lost by a couple touchdowns or something like that. He never beat a big school.
"If you look at his games against big schools, it was always hella interceptions, hella turnovers. It's like: 'Yo, if you're this good, why couldn't you do better?' He fits that mold, he's a big, tall quarterback. Big arm, supposedly. I don't see it, personally."
Allen is expected to return from a four-game absence due to a sprained right elbow on Sunday (1 p.m. ET) when the Bills (3-7) host Ramsey and the Jaguars (3-7).
"Honestly, I don't even remember what he said, but I could care less," Allen said on Monday. "It's more what my teammates feel about me and how I'm progressing right now and just trying to continue to learn the game of football, enjoy this, and live it with my teammates."
Allen, who is listed at 6-foot-5 and 237 pounds, has completed 75 of 139 passes for 832 yards with two touchdowns and five interceptions this season.
