The Minnesota Vikings have traded Yannick Ngakoue to the Baltimore Ravens for a 2021 third round pick and a 2022 conditional fifth round pick.
Ngakoue will fly to Baltimore in the next 24 hours to go through COVID-19 testing.
The Vikings acquired Ngakoue from the Jaguars before the start of the season. Ngakoue had hoped to be traded to the Ravens all along as a native of the area.
“We are excited to add Yannick Ngakoue to our football team,” Baltimore GM Eric DeCosta said. “Yannick is someone who we are very familiar with going back to the draft process years ago. He is an exciting player and a dangerous pass-rusher who makes us better. Yannick grew up here. He’s the type of person we welcome in our building. Finally, we are not finished building this team, as we continue to chase our ultimate goals.”
