Yannick Ngakoue fires back at Jaguars for handling his situation ‘piss poor’
The Yannick Ngakoue saga continues to rage on as the Jacksonville Jaguars are making it difficult for teams to get a hold of the defensive end. It seemingly looks like he’ll be traded before the draft, but the 25-year-old is just angry at how the team is handling the situation.
Ngakoue has reached a point where he’s not taking any crap from the team for what they are doing to him. He addressed rumors of him wanting more money on his Twitter account, going off and saying that the Jaguars are handling his situation as badly as they could possibly do.
Was never about the money Duval. My situation was handled piss poor. God bless.

It’s clear to everyone involved that Yannick Ngakoue doesn’t want anything to do with the team that drafted him in 2016. The way the Jaguars were making life difficult for its players pushed a talented defender to the limit.
The Jaguars will definitely get top value for someone who has been as effective as Ngakoue on the defensive end. He’s not at fault for Jacksonville’s defensive struggles, as he finished last season with 41 tackles, eight sacks, one fumble recovery, four forced fumbles and six pass deflections.
NFL.com’s Kevin Patra reported that the Jaguars have heard several inquiries from teams throughout the league, proving the value he adds to the team. However, they are definitely taking their time as Ngakoue is pissed at how the situation is being handled.
It’s unlikely that Ngakoue will start the season with the Jaguars, but only time will tell if he’ll get traded before the season starts.
