It seems a lifetime ago that JT kicked the winner in golden point handing the Cowboys the 2016 premiership. Currently, they are sitting on the equal second last amount of points in the competition and without their retired star, are looking worse for wear.
Enter Jesse Ramien.
Since Ramien has fallen out with Knights coach Nathan Brown he has been on a number of clubs’ hit lists, yet now the Cowboys are preparing to dig into the salary cap to get him.
The Cowboys need some attacking flair and The Courier-Mail are reporting the North Queensland club could offer over $1 million in a long-term contract to Ramien who has been exiled by his club. One of the most powerful performers in the game, Ramien ranks in the top three for tackles busted and at his best can be as good as anyone in the backs.
The 22-year-old is high on the Cowboys’ radar along with Valentine Holmes, who after a solid debut with the New York Jets in the NFL is still a while away from making their starting roster.
Ramien was in contention for Origin and whilst a host of clubs are said to be vying for his services it’s the Cowboys with the most cap space to make a serious offer. It is understood Ramien is seeking a three or four-year deal worth in excess of $300,000 annually.
