Yannick Ngakoue Traded to the Minnesota Vikings

After a long feud between Yannick Ngakoue and the Jacksonville Jauguars, the team agreed to trade him to the Minnesota Vikings. The Jaguars will receive a second-round pick and a conditional fifth-round pick according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Ngakoue, 25, was franchise-tagged, but did not send his tender. He will have to do so before the trade can go through. He will make $17.8 million this season, so the Vikings will have to restructure some deals to afford him.

In his four seasons with Jacksonville, Ngakoue had 37.5 sacks and made the Pro Bowl in 2017. Last season, he had eight sacks.

Minnesota will play him on the opposite side of the line as Danielle Hunter, which will help them create a formidable pass-rushing duo.
