89 days until kickoff: The Point

89 days until kickoff: The Point

This year marks the 25th season for the Jacksonville Jaguars. To celebrate, we’re counting down 100 days from our regular season kickoff with the top 100 moments in franchise history. Yesterday it was Fred Taylor’s masterful 90-yard run at the beginning of a dominating 62-7 playoff win against the Miami Dolphins. Today — the play we now call The Point. This play has everything: Yannick Ngakoue strip-sacking Ben Roethlisberger? Check. Telvin Smith pointing at Le’Veon Bell? Check. Jalen Ramsey hyping up the offense? Check. Myles Jack giving the L to the camera? Check. This is art....

Jaguars Analysis: 9.5 thoughts on Yannick Ngakoue's holdout

Nine-and-a-half thoughts (one for each of his 2018 sacks) on Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue's decision to skip this week's mandatory minicamp.1. Ngakoue's commitment to show up for the start of organized team activities last month came off as team-first, but now it appears miscalculated. Did he show up on his own hoping that would spur contract talks only for his agency (Roc Nation) to encourage him to leave town? That was a curious. 2. Because they have the franchise [...]

Ramsey won’t get new deal, this season

The Jacksonville Jaguars began mandatory mini-camp this week, with just on player choosing not to show up due to a contract dispute in defensive end Yannick Ngakoue.

Jaguars players to front office: “Pay Yannick Ngakoue”

The Jacksonville Jaguars have once again Jacksonville Jaguar’d, folks. Yannick Ngakoue, a premier pass rusher in the NFL, is still on his rookie contract. For the first three years of his contract, them’s the breaks. The newly negotiated CBA literally doesn’t allow a team to renegotiate contracts with a player during that time period. But this is Ngakoue’s fourth NFL season... and he’s eligible (and deserving) of a new contract. Instead, the Jaguars — who are just 12 months away from giving a potato who’s a downgrade from Quinn Gray tens of millions of dollars — are playing...
