Yannick Ngakoue traded from Vikings to Baltimore

Yannick Ngakoue, Vikings, Ravens

In some blockbuster NFL news, the Baltimore Ravens have landed defensive marvel Yannick Ngakoue in a trade from the Minnesota Vikings.

How do we know this? Tickle me thrilled you asked, as ESPN’s foremost NFL news breaking expert took to the mean streets of Twitter to relay the news.

For those who hate reading embedded tweets, let me descramble the message for you involving the Ravens, Vikings and Yannick Ngakoue.

According to our good pal Adam, the Ravens are getting Yannick Ngakoue while the Vikings are scooping up a 2021 third rounder and a 2022 fifth-round pick. That’s less a bit different than what they gave up to get the talent from the Jaguars. When Minny wanted his services, they gave up a 2021 second rounder and 2022 conditional fifth-round pick.

Hooray, trades… or something.

Nonetheless, this appears to be a move that might signal a slight pivot off this season by the Vikings and one where the Baltimore Ravens are doubling down for a chance at the Super Bowl.

After all, with an already explosive offense, adding Yannick Ngakoue to the defense is like pimping our your tricycle to the point it actually becomes a bleeping Lexus. Something like that, but we need not worry about the semantics.
