Several teams have shown interest in the Jags edge rusher Yannick Ngakoue, specifically the Eagles since Ngakoue fits the bill of the franchise’s philosophy of signing players heading into their second contract.
If the price lowers for Ngakoue, who was franchised by the Jags, the Birds may emerge as a front-runner for his services. The Eagles have one pick in each of the first four rounds in 2020 and one pick in each of the first three rounds in 2021. Jacksonville may want to move Ngakoue to the NFC and out of the conference, which would help the Eagles.
If both the Giants and Eagles, or any combination of teams, decide to make a run at Ngakoue, the Jaguars will benefit as it will drum up more trade interest.
