Yannick Ngakoue Doubles Commercial Demand for Jacksonville Jaguars


For weeks, defensive end Yannick Ngakoue has been on social media for not wanting to play for the Jaguars this season.

On Tuesday, Ngakoue expressed his desire to play elsewhere on national television.

He appeared as a special guest on ESPN NFL Live, claiming that the Jaguars had an opportunity to extend him a long-term contract last season, but talks have broken down and now is the time to move on .

“It is all over and it is time for me to move on to the next chapter of my career,” said Ngakoue. “I’m still grateful for what Jacksonville has brought to me and my family, but it’s time to move on. “

Ngakoue also took another shot at the franchise on Tuesday when he said he was one of the top five defensemen but, due to his match in Jacksonville, he could not be seen enough across the country because the Jaguars play so few prime time games.

“If I end up in a prime-time team, I hope I can show the world what I can do,” said Ngakoue. “I really want to be part of a team with a great culture and winning is a habit. I don’t want to be on a team where losing is a norm or something. ”

Although the Jaguars have an advantage over Ngakoue after naming him with the $ 17.8 million non-exclusive franchise label last month, the national image of the franchise continues to strike.

Just like last October with cornerback Jalen Ramsey, another prominent defensive star wants to step down.

Ramsey’s exit plan before it was traded to the Los Angeles Rams included public complaint that an unspecified Jaguar team official, later identified as former Jaguar chief executive Tom Coughlin, had said “disrespectful things” before simulating a back injury for not playing.
