CelebNSports247.com reports that the disgruntled defensive end Yannick Ngakoue has been traded to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for a second-round pick and conditional fifth-round pick.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Ngakoue still has to sign his franchise tender so he can be traded, and the Vikings are expected to create more salary-cap space to fit his contract
The 25-year-old must play the 2020 campaign under the one-year tag valued at $17.8 million before he can sign a long-term deal because he didn’t sign the tender by the July 15 deadline.
Schefter adds that Ngakoue will restructure his deal with Minnesota to create more cap space.
It’s not surprising Ngakoue wanted to be traded from the Jaguars. Jacksonville traded Calais Campbell, A.J. Bouye, and Nick Foles — and that’s not all.
Yannick Ngakoue Happily posted that he has now joined the Vikings:

Running back Leonard Fournette also received his wish, the Jaguars waived Fournette.
The Jaguars aren’t expected to be good for the next few years and possibly longer.
