Yannick Ngakoue, one of the Jacksonville Jaguars’ top players, is on the move according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who reported early Sunday the franchise has agreed to trade the standout defensive lineman to the Minnesota Vikings. Ngakoue, who has made it clear this summer he doesn’t want to be a part of the franchise’s future long-term, was dealt for two future draft picks — a second and conditional fifth-rounder that could become as a high as a third-round selection.
Ngakoue was designated with a non-exclusive franchise tag in March, after which he became frustration and vented his emotions publicly.
″Let’s agree to disagree,″ Ngakoue wrote on a Twitter post on his birthday. ″Why hold a man from taking care of his family. It’s obvious my time is up in my current situation. Let’s both move on. »
Ngakoue has to sign his franchise tag for the deal to become official with the Vikings and Minnesota must also try and fit his $19.3 million salary to ensure the franchise is under the cap.
Ngakoue’s total of 37.5 career sacks in four seasons is the most by a Jaguars player over 63 career games, according to USA Today. Ngakoue, a third-round pick in 2016 out of the University of Maryland, has been a reliable star for Jacksonville up front since his NFL career began.
