The Jacksonville Jaguars have already made one major NFL trade this offseason, sending quarterback Nick Foles to Chicago. Another move could be on the way.
Jacksonville pass rusher Yannick Ngakoue is celebrating his 25th birthday today. He could be celebrating a trade soon.
Ngakoue, a 2017 Pro Bowler, has been a constant topic of trade rumors this month. Those rumors are heating up this morning.
NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo reported today that the Jaguars are fielding multiple calls about Ngakoue, who starred collegiately at Maryland. He could be on the move at some point this offseason.
“The Jags value him and won’t give him away for little return but it’ll be interesting to see how this plays out as we draw closer to the draft,” he reports.

Ngakoue, a third round pick out of Maryland in 2016, admitted earlier this offseason that he wanted out of Jacksonville.
“Duval, I love you and gave you guys everything I got. I’m thankful for the journey and look forward to continuing my career elsewhere,” he wrote on Twitter.
The Jaguars placed the franchise tag on Ngakoue earlier in March.
