Raiders Agree To 2-Year Contract With Ngakoue

The Las Vegas Raiders have agreed to a two-year contract with edge rusher Yannick Ngakoue in a deal they hope fills the void created by the Khalil Mack trade in 2018.

A person familiar with the deal says the two sides came to terms on the first day teams could talk to potential free agents. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal can't be signed until the league year starts Wednesday.

The Raiders dealt Mack to Chicago three years ago and coach Jon Gruden has lamented how hard it is to find good pass rushers.
