Now 29, Yannick Ngakoue spent last season with the Chicago Bears, who didn’t retain him. The chance of getting a big pay day is slim now due to his injuries.

“I feel like everything’s going to work out just perfectly,” he said. “Like I said, everything happens for a reason. God is a perfect planner, and the end of the day, I’m just focused on myself, just focused on how can I get better, focusing on things that I could have done better last year. At the end of the day, I make no excuses. I just hope that I’m somewhere before training camp starts because everyone needs to go through a training camp in order to have the kind of season they want to have.”

“It’s just like a boxer at the end of the day. If you don’t have a proper training camp, you can go into the ring and get knocked out. So it’s all about preparation. The only thing that I’m worried about is being able to help an organization, help out the young guys and guys that are veterans as well to be able to get a Super Bowl ring and just bring great energy to that building wherever I’m at.”
