The Jacksonville Jaguars want to trade Yannick Ngakoue.

Yannick Ngakoue wants to be traded by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

It doesn’t look like either side has much time to get a deal done though.

When speculating about a possible draft day trade for the frustrated pass rusher who called the owner a clown and is definitely being shopped for a first round pick, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said the “clock is running out” and that it’s “unlikely” a deal gets done.

“The clock is running out on a deal for Jaguars franchised pass-rusher Yannick Ngakoue and there hasn’t been much traction to date. These deals are complicated and difficult — both in settling on compensation and doing an extension with his agent. At this point, unlikely.”

Call me crazy, but I still think a deal gets done — I just think it’ll be for a package and not a simple, straightforward “pick for a player” trade. It’ll take time, but I think it still happens.
