Yannick Ngakoue Joins Vikings, Signs New Deal

The Minnesota Vikings have acquired defensive end Yannick Ngakoue from the Jaguars, ending a months-long saga that involved the former Pro Bowler wanting to depart from the organization at any cost. Ngakoue additionally signed a new one-year deal, albeit a discount of what he would have received had he accepted a franchise tender from the Jaguars. With the move, Ngakoue will face Jacksonville on Dec. 6. Minnesota had to part with a second-round and conditional fifth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, further enhancing the defenses season-long upside during draft season.

No Trade Imminent For Yannick Ngakoue

No trade is imminent for Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue, but a few teams, including the Raiders, have kept an open mind and continue to monitor the situation in Jacksonville. While not impossible, a deal for the young pass-rusher will be difficult to pull off after the Jags placed the franchise tag on him. Ngakoue still has yet to sign his franchise tag and wants out of Jacksonville. The Jaguars are open to trading him, but they obviously won't just give him away for pennies on the dollar. If he's dealt, expect him to fetch at least a second-rounder. The 25-year-old from Maryland should be a starting defensive lineman in IDP leagues regardless, but he might be happier and productive with another club in 2020.

Jaguars In No Rush To Trade Yannick Ngakoue

The Jacksonville Jaguars have received multiple offers for defensive end Yannick Ngakoue, including one involving a Pro Bowl player that doesn't fit their system, but it hasn't been enough value for them to deal a player of Ngakoue's caliber, according to sources. Teams have been told that the pass-rusher would play on the $17.788 million franchise tender, but the Jaguars are in no rush to trade him despite his wishes to play elsewhere. Ngakoue has been flexible about playing on the tag in another city, but the COVID-19 pandemic has made any long-term deals very challenging. If nothing is worked out, Ngakoue will play for the Jags under the tag in 2020. The 25-year-old has become one of the best young pass-rushers in the league and is definitely in play in IDP formats.
