Despite the NFL draft concluding and most major offseason moves finalized, a handful of notable players, including EDGE Yannick Ngakoue, remain available in free agency. Ngakoue, who played for the Chicago Bears in 2023, finds himself without a contract, prompting him to take matters into his own hands.

In a proactive move, Ngakoue shared a workout video on his Twitter account, showcasing his recovery from a surgically repaired right ankle. Accompanied by the caption, "What ankle?" the video aims to reassure potential suitors of his readiness to return to peak performance despite his previous injury setback.
Ngakoue's determination to prove his fitness could bolster his chances of securing a contract with a contender post-draft. Despite a challenging 2023 season marred by injury, his past achievements, including a 10-sack campaign two years prior and a respectable 4.0 sacks in 2023 despite missing games, underscore his potential impact on any team's pass rush.
However, factors such as his recent injury, advancing age (now 29), and a subdued market reception contribute to the uncertainty surrounding Ngakoue's future. Nonetheless, Chicago, where he demonstrated his prowess as the team's third-highest sack contributor last season, remains a viable option for a reunion. Ngakoue's familiarity with the Bears' system could further enhance his value to the team.
As Ngakoue seeks to re-establish himself in the league, a potential discounted deal with Chicago could be mutually beneficial, bolstering the team's playoff aspirations while providing Ngakoue with the opportunity to reignite his career on familiar turf.
