Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Franchise tagged by Jags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars placed their franchise tag on Ngakoue on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Ngakoue expressed disinterest in coming to terms with Jaguars on a long-term deal earlier this month, a hint that he may look to pursue a trade now that he's constrained by the franchise tag. Entering his age-25 season, Ngakoue boasts four straight campaigns with at least eight sacks and 14 quarterback hits. He also forced four or more fumbles in three of those four seasons. In any event, Ngakoue's youth and history of production at a premier position will likely lead to a future long-term deal of at least $20 million per year, no matter what club he eventually comes to terms with.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Hoping for tag-and-trade?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Jaguars will use their franchise tag on Ngakoue, who tweeted Monday that he no longer has interest in signing a long-term deal with the team.

It's possible Ngakoue changes his mind if the Jaguars improve their offer, but it sounds like he's hoping for a tag-and-trade at the moment. The 2016 third-round pick will turn 25 in March, following four consecutive seasons with eight or more sacks and 14 or more QB hits. Given his age, position and production, Ngakoue likely wants at least $20 million per year on his long-term contract.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Forces fumble in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue had one solo tackle and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Colts.

The 24-year-old finished the 2019 campaign with 41 tackles (36 solo), eight sacks, one interception, four forced fumbles and a defensive touchdown in 15 games. Ngakoue is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the spring with his rookie contract now concluded, and there's a good bet he opts to test the market after posting 37.5 sacks, two interceptions and 14 forced fumbles through his first four seasons.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Delivers two sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue had five solo tackles, two sacks and a pass defensed during Sunday's win over the Raiders.

Ngakoue posted his third multiple-sack game of the season and also tied his season high in tackles. The 24-year-old has 40 tackles (35 solo), eight sacks, three forced fumbles, one interception and one touchdown in 13 games.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Forces third fumble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue had two solo tackles, a strip-sack and fumble recovery in Sunday's 42-20 loss to the Titans.

Ngakoue's strip-sack and subsequent fumble recovery at the start of the second quarter was the defensive highlight of the day for Jacksonville, as Tennessee averaged 9.1 yards per play. The 24-year-old had only two sacks through the first six games of the season, but he now has four sacks and two forced fumbles over his last four games.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Gets to Brissett
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue recorded four solo tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in Sunday's 33-13 loss to the Colts.

Ngakoue's sack total looked like it was regressing from last year's 9.5-sack mark, but he now has five through nine games and could match that total. The fourth-year pro will look to get to Ryan Tannehill in Week 12.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Doubles sack total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue had two tackles and two sacks in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Ngakoue hasn't been able to consistently find the quarterback this season, as he has recorded a sack in only two of eight games. He has 18 tackles (14 solo), four sacks, an interception and a forced fumble.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Scores first touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue had two solo tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown during Sunday's win over the Bengals.

The interception is Ngakoue's second of his career and it's the first time he's reached the end zone. The 24-year-old is off to a slow start this season with 16 tackles (12 solo) and only two sacks in seven games.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Notches first two sacks of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue recorded four tackles and two sacks in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Panthers.

After racking up 9.5 sacks last season, it has taken Ngakoue a while to get fired up this year. He was impressive in this outing, though, dropping Kyle Allen twice. The fourth-year pro has a tough test against the Saints on tap, as Teddy Bridgewater has been sacked just five times in three starts.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue (hamstring) practiced in full Tuesday, Tad Dickman of the Jaguars' Public Relations reports.

Ngakoue sat out of Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Texans due to a hamstring injury. It looks like the Jags may have been exercising caution with their starting defensive end due to the quick turnaround into Week 3. His full participation Tuesday indicates he is on track to return Thursday against the Titans, barring any setbacks.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Ruled out for divisional contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue (hamstring) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This is a damaging development for the Jaguars' pass rush -- Ngakoue had 9.5 sacks in 2018 -- as it prepares to take on mobile and deadly accurate QB Deshaun Watson. In his place, rookie Josh Allen is expected to start at defensive end.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue (hamstring) won't participate in Wednesday's practice, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

Ngakoue's injury was unexpected since he played 49 of 68 defensive snaps (72 percent) in Week 1. Not practicing in any capacity isn't a good sign, but Ngakoue avoided injuries through the first three years of his career -- he played every game -- and will have two more practices Thursday and Friday to get back onto the field.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Ending holdout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue (contract dispute) will report to training camp Sunday, thereby ending his holdout, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Feeling undervalued heading into the final year of his rookie contract, Ngakoue has been holding out from team activities this offseason in an attempt to gain negotiation leverage. Coach Doug Marrone had previously stated that he expected his young pass rusher to report by Aug. 5, and Ngakoue confirmed that notion Sunday. Ngakoue had to report by Tuesday in order for his season to count as accrued, thereby scheduling him to become an unrestricted free agent following 2019. After racking up 29.5 sacks in the last three seasons, the 2016 third-round pick will be eager to continue his success this season, in order to receive the contract he craves.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Expected by deadline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone said Thursday that he expects Ngakoue (contract dispute) to report to training camp by August 5 in order to accrue his fourth season, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Ngakoue previously skipped June minicamp and is attempting to gain negotiation leverage heading into the final year of his rookie contract. Marrone has been in contact with Ngakoue, according to Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com, and says he "understands the situation." The 2016 third-round pick has yet to miss a regular-season contest, and he notched 28 tackles (25 solo), 9.5 sacks and one pass defended in 2018. As long as Ngakoue remains away from the team, rookie first-round pick Josh Allen (knee) stands to receive extra first-team reps.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Continues holdout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue didn't report Wednesday for the start of training camp, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 2016 third-round pick has averaged 27 tackles, 9.8 sacks and 3.3 forced fumbles in three pro seasons, playing all 48 games along the way. Entering the final year of his rookie contract, Ngakoue already skipped June minicamp in an effort to gain leverage for extension negotiations. His absence from practice should free up extra first-team reps for rookie first-round pick Josh Allen (knee), whose presence on the roster could make Jacksonville hesitant to pay Ngakoue market value. Recent contracts for other high-end edge rushers in DeMarcus Lawrence, Frank Clark and Trey Flowers have landed in the range of $18-to-21 million in average annual value, with each player receiving at least $43.8 million guaranteed, per OverTheCap.com.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Will not attend minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue said in a statement released Monday that he will not attend Jaguars' minicamp due to his desire for a new contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Ngakoue previously said that he would attend all spring practices and training camp, so this is a somewhat unexpected development. The 24-year-old tallied 28 tackles (25 solo) and nine sacks in 2018 and is entering the final year of his rookie contract. Over the last three seasons, Ngakoue has accumulated 29.5 sacks, tied for 10th in the league. He reiterated his commitment to the Jaguars within his statement, but this is a situation worth monitoring as it continues to develop.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Absent from OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue did not participate in OTAs on Tuesday, and it may be related to his desire for a new contract, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Ngakoue expressed his desire for a new deal as he entered the final year of his rookie contract, but he still said that he would be present for all spring practices and training camp. The Jaguars are yet to comment on Ngakoue's absence, but it is definitely a situation worth monitoring, especially if he doesn't take part in any practices this week.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Spotted at offseason workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue was present Monday for the Jaguars' offseason training program, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Ngakoue racked up 28 tackles (25 solo) and nine sacks last season, pushing him to third in Jaguars history with 29.5 sacks. He's entering the final year of his rookie contract, so the fact he attended the team's first offseason workout indicates he'll let his play do the talking and allow the pieces to fall as they may next year.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Posts 1.5 sacks in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue had five tackles (three solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 20-3 loss to the Texans.

Ngakoue reached his highest tackle total of the year in the season finale, as he eclipsed three tackles in only three games. The 23-year-old had another solid season with 9.5 sacks, but his minimal tackle total (28 combined) made him a difficult IDP play. In his first two seasons, he had a ridiculous 10 forced fumbles but wasn't able to record any in 2018. Ngakoue has one year left on his rookie contract and should remain an important piece of the Jaguars' defensive front in 2019, though his IDP potential will remain limited unless he can improve upon his tackle total.

Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue: Records eighth sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngakoue had two solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 17-7 win over the Dolphins.

Ngakoue's eighth foray into the sack column set the Dolphins behind the sticks in the third quarter, helping lead to a punt. The 23-year-old's continued low-tackle production -- he has more than two tackles in only two games this season -- made him a generally unappealing IDP option again this season, despite his ability to rush the passer.
