Yannick Ngakoue officially holding out of Jaguars camp

Jacksonville Jaguars franchise-tagged defensive lineman Yannick Ngakoue has not reported to training camp, per head coach Doug Marrone.

What It Means:

Ngakoue has made it clear that he wants out of Jacksonville and it doesn't seem like that stance has changed. Marrone says he hasn't had any conversations with Ngakoue. Pro Bowl defensive end has at least begun contract talks with other teams in hopes of facilitating a future deal. The 25-year-old Pro Bowler recorded 8.0 sacks, 13 tackles for loss, 4 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recoveries, 1 interception, 6 pass deflections, 15 quarterback hits, and 27 pressures in 15 games last season. He has recorded at least 8.0 sacks and forced 4-plus fumbles each of his first four seasons in the league.

numberFire's models expect Ngakoue to record 50.4 tackles, 9.7 sacks, 3.4 pass deflections, and 2.2 forced fumbles this season. The Jaguars D/ST is 22nd in our preseason fantasy rankings.
