Nothing Imminent, But Raiders Could End Up With Yannick Ngakoue For a Day 2 Pick

On Wednesday a potential trade was reported involving the Raiders and Jaguars that would involve Yannick Ngakoue.

The Raiders interest in Ngakoue was confirmed by ProFootballTalk on Thursday morning, but the Jaguars are reportedly the team pushing to find a trade partner for Ngakoue.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, there hasn’t been much traction toward a trade and a deal is unlikely to happen today. But that doesn’t mean something can’t happen on day two of the draft.

The clock is running out on a deal for #Jaguars franchised pass-rusher Yannick Ngakoue and there hasn’t been much traction to date. These deals are complicated and difficult – both in settling on compensation and doing an extension with his agent. At this point, unlikely.

Even though it was reported that the Raiders were offering pick 19 for Ngakoue, it seems like a stretch to think the Jaguars will get a first-round pick for him. If the Raiders can trade back with one of their first-round picks, a trade with Jacksonville (where they get a pick in the 25-45 range) seems a lot more likely.

The Jaguars are running out of time to find a trade partner for Ngakoue so there is a good chance they’ll soon take the best deal they can get in the next 36 hours. Considering the Jags are the ones calling around, the Raiders might not have a lot of competition for Ngakoue and that might lend to the idea of Jacksonville taking a second-round pick.

Remember, any team that takes Ngakoue will need to agree on a massive extension and get him through a physical. That challenge along might eliminate anyone who hasn’t been working for the past few days on a way to get Ngakoue – which apparently the Raiders have been doing.

  1. He’s going to want a massive payday. And when will he start demanding more money from the Raiders. Year 2 or 3 of a deal? And I’m just curious. What will this do to our cap situation long term?

  2. Too much money until they trade DC for a second and use that second and the savings to trade and resign. Not entirely out of the question especially if the draft falls in our favor

  3. Too much $? Nah, the cap can be worked out… Yannick Ygakoue, is 25, a game disrupter and will make others around him better effective… he’d be great investment at 19 or later, a steal if only having to give up a day 2 or 3 pick … …

  4. Hes another AB looking to get out Jack’s *** town it might turn into an ugly situation again if u guys front office haven’t learn from last year fiasco n losing another pick instead of going forward is like going backwards?????????
