Report: Jaguars have turned down multiple offers for Yannick Ngakoue

It’s obvious the Jaguars aren’t going to give defensive end Yannick Ngakoue a long-term deal before today’s deadline. Are they going to give in to his trade demand?

A report earlier Wednesday indicated Ngakoue is willing to play elsewhere on the one-year, $17.8 million franchise tag.

The obvious problem with that is a team willing to trade for Ngakoue is going to give less for a one-year rental.

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Media, the Jaguars have received multiple offers for Ngakoue, “including one involving a Pro Bowl player who didn’t fit their system.” The Jaguars, though, have not gotten an offer with enough value — at least in their minds — for Ngakoue.

So the Jaguars are in no rush to make a deal, Pelssero adds.

Last year, the Seahawks traded for Texans’ tag-holder Jadeveon Clowney before the season, costing them Jacob Martin, Barkevious Mingo and a third-round pick.

  1. Jaguars are the worst run organization in the league. Everyone wanted to say Tom Coughlin was the problem, he’s been gone for several years now.

  2. Screams desperate, Jags know after any long term deal can be reached has passed his trade value is nothing. Oh well you rolled the dice and got burnt, next question is does he sign and show up for camp or holdout. If I were him holdout, why risk Covid until he has to if he wants a long term deal with another term. No point getting potentially sick and hurting his market next year.

  3. @bigtimewhodat – Tom Coughlin has only been gone for one season. Jags had to trade cut every solid player from that 2017 roster because Coughlin DESTROYED the culture. Takes more than a year to come back from that. The Jags have sucked for a long, long time, but Coughlin was definitely the problem this last time around.

    Exactly. The Bungles and Washington are the worst run organizations with Cleveland coming right behind them. Jax is a little further down the list. Still not great, Coughlin really screwed that team up.
