Jaguars' Defensive End Yannick Ngakoue Ends Holdout Without New Deal

We're happy to have him back and ready to go so we're excited. He's ready to go. He's in great shape and we're all together.After missing three-day mandatory minicamp in June and nearly 2 weeks of training camp, Ngakoue was fined $528,650. The Jags' defensive end sought for a mega-deal similar to DeMarcus Lawrence of the Cowboys and Frank Clark of the Kansas City Chiefs with a contract over $100 million, signed in offseason. Unfortunately, Ngakoue got no deals. On the other hand, Lawrence now pockets $21 million while Clark takes home $20.8 million per season. Even though Yannick got an offer of $19 million per year earlier, for a short-term deal, it broke off last month.
