The Jacksonville Jaguars traded defensive end Yannick Ngakoue to the Minnesota Vikings prior to the start of the 2020 NFL season. It was pretty clear Ngakoue was perfectly fine sitting out the season and wouldn’t play for the Jaguars, so they got what they could. The Vikings, who quickly looked like they’d bomb out the season, flipped Ngakoue to the Baltimore Ravens.
Well, it’s Pro Bowl voting time and Ngakoue is actually having a good season (five sacks in seven starts), but one genius Jaguars fan on Reddit has figured out a way to both help out Ngakoue and the Jaguars at the same time.
Reddit user “Anuglyman” has gotten the cooperation of multiple fans of multiple teams to help with the effort of stuffing the ballot box to help Ngakoue with the fan vote portion of the Pro Bowl process. If Ngakoue makes the Pro Bowl again, the subsequent conditional fifth-round pick the Jaguars got from the Vikings becomes a fourth-round pick.
So there you go.
