Jags QB Minshew: ‘Ngakoue out for blood’

So desperate to get out of Jacksonville was Yannick Ngakoue that he staged a contract standoff to force the Jaguars to trade him.

Former teammate Gardner Minshew has an idea of what to expect from Ngakoue when the defensive end faces the Jaguars as a member of the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

“Now Yannick’s going to be out for blood,” Minshew said.

Ngakoue was traded twice since his holdout as a franchise player with the Jaguars. He accepted a $5.8 million pay cut to help the Minnesota Vikings acquire him from the Jaguars, but after a slow start he was dealt to the Ravens in late October.

Ngakoue had 37.5 sacks in four seasons with the Jaguars. He’s not planning to give Jacksonville any bulletin board material before this week’s game, when Ngakoue and former Jaguars defensive lineman Calais Campbell are playing for the other side.

“I’m just treating it as another game,” Ngakoue said. “We need the rest of these wins to get to where we need to get to. At the end of the day, I had my time with Jacksonville, you know that’s not a secret. At the end of the day, I’m just going to treat it like another game, another Sunday.”

Campbell has battled injuries in his first season with Baltimore. Ngakoue has one sack in his seven games with the Ravens.

“Sometimes, that’s how the game is,” Ngakoue said. “But they come in bunches when they roll in. You got to continue to have a mindset of ‘I can’t give up. I won’t stop. I’ll keep rushing regardless.’ “

In three seasons with the Jaguars, Campbell went to the Pro Bowl three times.

“I’ve been in contact with a bunch of the guys over there, just because in football, you develop a brotherhood and friendship,” Campbell said. “So, a lot of those guys I’m real, real tight with. So it’s going to be fun competing and talking trash along the way and having some fun with the old team.”
