The Las Vegas Raiders have signed defensive end, Yannick Ngakoue on a two-year, $26M deal. A former 3rd round pick out of Maryland, Ngakoue spent his first 4 years with the Jacksonville Jaguars. In those 4 seasons, Yannick racked up a total of 122 tackles, 37.5 sacks, 2 interceptions and he was also part of the 2017 “Sacksonville” defence that made it to the AFC Championship game.
Ngakoue was traded to the Vikings before the 2020 season where he had a total of 5 sacks in 5 games. He was then traded to the Baltimore Ravens before the deadline where he played a total of 11 games and managed to secure 3 sacks. Ngakoue helped the Ravens reach the AFC Divisional Round before they were defeated by the Buffalo Bills by a score of 17-3. The Raiders have been looking to acquire another impactful defensive end opposite Maxx Crosby, so they will be hoping that Ngakoue is that guy.
