“I think his options are very limited at this point,” said Caldwell, by Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. “We welcome him with open arms. Great player and person. “
Ngakoue and co-owner of the team, senior vice president Tony Khan came and went on Twitter Monday on Ngakoue’s desire to be traded away from the Jaguars.
As part of the round trip, Ngakoue said that Khan had agreed that his match against the Los Angeles Chargers in week 14 would be his last with the Jaguars. Khan replied that there was a new regime with the team and that only a solid return would exchange it.
“Show me the compensation.” I’m sure you’re really raising the price, “Khan wrote in the end.
The Jaguars used their franchise label on Ngakoue, 25, after scoring 41 tackles and eight sacks in 15 games last year. He has yet to sign the tender, which is worth about $ 18 million.
A third-round pick in 2016, Ngakoue has 37.5 sacks in four seasons since entering the league, including a career record of 12 in 2017 when he was named to the Pro Bowl.
