Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey looks out from the back of an armored car before comedian Ha Ha Davis, not shown, announced his arrival to NFL football training camp outside TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Fla., Wednesday, July 24, 2019.

Jacksonville Jaguars outspoken cornerback Jalen Ramsey arrived at training camp on Wednesday in a fake armored truck.

The truck, parked near the entrance to camp, was emblazoned with Adidas logos “Feel the Boost” and “Boost.” Ramsey signed with the sports apparel company last month.

Comedian Ha Ha Davis stepped down from the driver’s side to introduce Ramsey with a megaphone.

“You know what time it is,” he shouted, according to USA Today. “This man covers so good, he better have his own cellphone service. … The man, the myth, Jalen Ramsey!”

Ramsey then emerged from the back of the truck.

“It’s time to get this money,” the hype man said as Ramsey stepped down with his bags.

Ramsey has made some noise about his contract. He is entering the final year of his $23.3 million rookie deal. The Jaguars exercised the fifth-year option in the deal, meaning he’s tied to the club for $13.7 million in 2020.

But his grand entrance made it clear that he expects to get paid handsomely.

On Twitter, Ramsey seemed to respond to the splash his arrival made with a comment, “Strictly for your entertainment!! You’re welcome!!”

Arrivals at NFL training camp have become a thing among some players.

Over the years, several Pittsburgh Steelers players, have tried to make a entrance. Here’s a list of some of the grandest.

After knocking out the Steelers in a playoff game in January 2018 to make it to the AFC title game (and lose to the New England Patriots), the Jaguars went 5-11 last season.
