Yannick’s tweets indicate that he is on his way out from the Jags. Indeed, the Cameroonian’s tweets seem to indicate that he wants to move on.
Ngakoue’s words are telling coming from a player still inside the organization heading into April. A long-term deal between the two sides seems impossible at this point, with the pass rusher looking to suit up in new colors heading into 2020.
Fortunately for both sides, there remains over three weeks before the NFL Draft, which could allow other franchises to offer Draft picks as capital in acquiring Ngakoue.
In the past four season, Ngakoue earned his first and only Pro Bowl selection in 2017. Since the franchise selected him in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, he has started all but two regular-season contests in that span.
Last year, Ngakoue compiled a career-high 41 tackles, adding eight sacks, six passes defended, and one interception, which was returned for a touchdown. Recently, teams have placed a premium on explosive pass-rushing talents, which could make Ngakoue a desirable commodity for those in search of an edge rusher.
