Yannick Ngakoue has been a menace in the AFC South, but it looks like he might not be there much longer.

Last year in the Tennessee Titans home matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Taylor Lewan missed one play after getting hurt, and on that play Yannick Ngakoue beat Dennis Kelly for a strip-sack.

That isn’t to say that Dennis Kelly isn’t a good tackle, but rather to point out that if you don’t have a top in talent blocking Ngakoue, something bad is going to happen sooner or later.

So you can understand why the Jacksonville Jaguars wanted to make sure that they kept the young star under contract by franchise tagging him before the offseason really started. That is just good business, right?

Well, not exactly. It looks like the Jaguars may not be the victims of a player trying to get paid, but instead, they may have been misleading (at best) when they talked to Ngakoue before the offseason.

A heated Twitter exchange between Ngakoue and Tony Khan (son of the Jacksonville Jaguars owner) has exposed even more of the star EDGE’s discontent and the reason why a trade hasn’t been made yet.

Let me catch you up on where everything stands.
