Yannick Ngakoue, Richie Incognito clear the air at 2018 Pro Bowl - NewYorkUpstate.com
Although the matter is still under league investigation, Richie Incognito and Yannick Ngakoue seem to have cleared the air. Ngakoue accused Incognito of using ”weak racist slurs” following the Jacksonville Jaguars’ 10-3 playoff win over the Buffalo Bills on January 7.
Incognito has stayed quiet on the matter, but teammate Dion Dawkins defended the guard shortly after Ngakoue’s accusation. General manager Brandon Beane acknowledged that an exchange took place between the two players, but he referred to the matter as a misunderstanding.
Now, just weeks after the two faced off, Incognito and Ngakoue will be teammates at the Pro Bowl. It appears that being teammates allowed the two to talk and put the issue behind him. Incognito didn’t meet with the media after Wednesday’s Pro Bowl practice, but Ngakoue said the two were good to go.
2018 Senior Bowl: 5 players the Jacksonville Jaguars are targeting - BigCatCountry.com
The offseason is upon us. With the Jacksonville Jaguars unfortunate loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship this past Sunday, we immediately turn our attention to Mobile, Alabama for the Senior Bowl.

A.J. Bouye: New England Patriots were goading Jacksonville Jaguars into committing more penalties - ESPN.com
Cornerback A.J. Bouye did not blame the Jacksonville Jaguars’ 24-20 loss to the New England Patriots on officiating, but he certainly wasn’t happy about the huge discrepancy in penalties.
The Jaguars were penalized six times for 98 yards in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game while the Patriots were penalized just once for 10 yards, which was a holding penalty on a kickoff.
Bouye was especially upset about Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore not being called for pass interference against receiver Dede Westbrook on a fourth-down pass late in the game, a 32-yard pass interference call against him late in the first half that set up a touchdown, and about Patriots receiver Danny Amendola not being called for head-butting safety Tashaun Gipson after a play in the third quarter.
