After turmoil between Yannick Ngakoue and the Jaguars front office for what has felt like forever, thanks to 2020 feeling like forever, the star pass rusher has a new home.
Ngakoue has been traded to the Minnesota Vikings. The Jaguars recieve a 2nd round draft pick in 2021 and a conditional round 5 pick in 2021 for the pass rusher.
The Vikings let Everson Griffen leave for Dallas in free agency and just replaced him with another all-pro level pass rusher to play the opposite side of Danielle Hunter. This was a great move for both teams as the Vikings defense thrives on that double edged pass rush. The Jaguars are rebuilding and can move on from the veteran player who had become a distraction for the locker room. I give both teams an A on this trade.
