Tom Pelissero from the NFL Network reported that Jaguar had held talks with the team but had not yet received an official offer. Mike Garafolo from the NFL Network added the team “realized quickly the price was high and they didn’t just give it away.”
In March, Jaguar used their franchise tag Ngakoue, who then asked for trade.
Ngakoue continued to call the franchise Indonesia on Monday, specifically entered into contention with owner Tony Khan:
Ngakoue: stop hiding moe.
Khan: I’m not hiding sir, I’m in isolation getting ready for a draft. I was quite active on social media separately, but you wouldn’t know it because you stopped following me (again).
Ngakoue: Because of your feelings today let’s let the world enter the truth. We have discussed that the charger game is my last game. But you are trying to get back to the situation without answering my camp call. Smh you spoiled a bra .. holding people for no reason.
Khan: This is a new regime, sir. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the contributions you make here. That said, tweeting insults at me won’t make you trade faster. Only good trade compensation will do that. Direct your efforts to more productive outlets.
Ngakoue: Just exchange me. I do not need his speech.
Khan: Show me compensation. I’m sure you really raised prices today.
Ngakoue also openly begged Jags to “finish this.” The 25-year-old is not only looking for trade but also a long-term contract that will make him one of the highest paid defenders in football. Although it might be fair to question his tactics, Ngakoue has produced many things. He recorded 41 tackles and eight sacks in 2019, the fourth season in a row with at least eight sacks.
The biggest obstacle is the price requested by Jacksonville. ESPN Jordan Raanan reported earlier this month that Jaguar wanted to choose the first round and “more” in return. That San Francisco 49ers got the first round from Indianapolis Colts in place of the previous DeForest Buckner this offseason. Ngakoue wasn’t at Buckner’s level, but he wasn’t far, so the first in exchange was the most reasonable request.
With Ngakoue openly disputing ownership, it would be a big surprise for any team to give more than a mid-round choice. Relations here are disjointed that Jaguar has almost no influence, apart from the potential for coercion Ngakoue will be absent throughout the 2020 season if he does not sign the tag.
