As written in the by Current News: After months of speculation, public tirades and much, much more, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Yannick Ngakoue are finally on different paths with the Jaguars reportedly agreeing to trade the fifth-year defensive end to the Minnesota Vikings for a 2021 second-round pick and a 2022 conditional fifth-round pick. We have discussed the merits of an Ngakoue trade throughout the offseason, but now we actually have tangible compensation and decisions to reflect on. So, what does the trade mean for Ngakoue and the Jaguars moving forward? Ngakoue taking less money from Vikings speaks volumesThe most newsworthy aspect of this trade is the fact that Yannick Ngakoue reportedly is actually taking less money to play for the Vikings in 2020 than he would have to play for the Jaguars. The Jaguars originally placed a franchise tag tender on Ngakoue worth around $17.7 million, which would have made him the highest-paid player on the team in the event he ever signed it (which was never happening). Instead, Ngakoue reportedly is agreeing to a re-worked deal that will pay him several million dollars less, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network and Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. Simply put, Ngakoue taking potentially four million dollars less to play for a team that isn’t Jacksonville shows just how much he no longer wanted to be a Jaguar. It is an unparalleled move from a player to display his frustrations with a franchise, and it shows just how unlikely Ngakoue was to ever suit up for the Jaguars again. By not agreeing to Jacksonville’s contract offer last summer and then taking a pay cut with the Vikings now, the defensive end lost out on potentially upwards of $20 million over 2019 and 2020, but he also got a somewhat quicker exit out of Jacksonville than he would have otherwise. Jacksonville needs K’Lavon Chaisson to be an impact player fastIt was always unlikely that Ngakoue was going to play for the Jaguars in 2020, but up until Sunday, there was at least somewhat of a possibility existing. Now, with that possibility officially dead, it’s clear who the Jags need to step up in Ngakoue’s place: first-round rookie defensive end K’Lavon Chaisson. Jacksonville selected Chaisson with the No. 20 overall pick in April’s NFL Draft after he recorded 60 tackles and 6.5 sacks during his final year at LSU, with over half of those sacks coming in LSU’s biggest games down the stretch. He won’t be asked to be the No. 1 edge rusher, of course, with that responsibility going to Josh Allen, but he should be expected to play a role similar to the one Allen played last season. The dropoff from Ngakoue to Chaisson should be a significant one early on considering Ngakoue is an established veteran and Chaisson still has to prove he can produce at the NFL level. If Chaisson can quickly become an impact player, it would mean the Jaguars’ pass-rush maybe doesn’t take as much of a step back as it some project. But we won’t know that until the games begin.\n\n\nAll data is taken from the source: http://si.com\nArticle Link: https://www.si.com/nfl/jaguars/news/5-observations-on-ngakoue-trade-what-it-means-for-the-jaguars\n\n\n#YannickNgakoue #newstrump #newstoday #newstodayusa #newstodayinusa #usanewstoday #
