The Raiders and defensive end Yannick Ngakoue have moved from close to an agreement on a contract to agreement on a contract.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Ngakoue has agreed to a two-year deal. He’ll make $26 million in Las Vegas.

Ngakoue will be reunited with Raiders defensive coordinator Gus Bradley once he officially signs his contract. Bradley was Ngakoue’s first NFL head coach with the Jaguars.

The Raiders will be Ngakoue’s fourth team since the start of the 2019 season. He played that year for the Jaguars and was traded to the Vikings last year after being franchise tagged in Jacksonville. He was traded to the Ravens during the season.

Ngakoue had eight sacks in 15 overall games in 2020 and has 45.5 sacks since entering the league as a 2016 third-round pick. He also has 145 tackles, 18 forced fumbles, two interceptions, and three fumble recoveries.

  1. This was the result of not keeping Mack in the first place. You eventually have to pay – at least he’s young, but whether he is FOCUSED, that is up to DC Gus Bradley – nice start to the Free agency…. but who will replace Nelson Agholor at Wide Receiver?

  2. this dude has potential – hopefully a 2 yr deal won’t make him sit on his arse.

  3. …and this is why the Ravens lead the league in compensation picks! 2 gone already!

  4. Vikings sucked at edge and they wasted a draft pick for a few weeks of his service. That’s a red flag…

  5. I don’t think he’s a guy that’s going to get us 10+ sacks a year, but I guess we can use all the help we can get. We still need to draft a pass rusher.

  6. Nice. Just keep signing good players. When you apply pressure, all the young DB’s get better. I’d even get one more edge rusher.

    The Ravens used him for no reason and still sit in a cap hell anyway. Selfish loser players tend to gravitate to loser franchises.

    Hence why these teams make the mistake of signing them.

  8. Younger and cheaper, Khalil Mack ain’t taking anyone to the super bowl

    So the Ravens sent this year’s 3rd and next year’s 5th to the Vikings just so they could rent a player for 8 games and possibly get a 3rd round compensatory pick next year? Doesn’t seem like any kind of winning strategy.

    Unless you’re a dumb team like the Ravens or Raiders and think it is some coincidence.

  11. I was happy when Ravens traded for him. But he never showed up. Seems like a sever over reach at this amount.

  12. That’s too much for a guy who has benefitted from having Calais Campbell demanding double-teams. If he plays well in his first year he’ll be demanding $20M+ per year again. This is the same guy who said he couldn’t feed his family on the $17.8M franchise tag salary. He must be applying for food stamps since he’s only getting $26M over two years.
