Vikings Trade DE Yannick Ngakoue to Ravens for Draft Picks
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have traded defensive end Yannick Ngakoue to the Baltimore Ravens for draft picks.
The deal came less than two months after the Vikings acquired the fifth-year pass rusher in a deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Ngakoue is tied for fourth in the NFL with five sacks in six games, including two forced fumbles.
The Vikings entered their bye week with a 1-5 record and more incentive to focus on the future. The Ravens are 5-1. They're fourth in the league in sacks per pass attempt.
