Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue hasn't been shy about his wish to be traded, but he took his demands to a new level Monday.

The Pro Bowler posted his thoughts on Twitter and eventually got into an argument with Tony Khan, the team's vice president of football administration and son of owner Shad Khan (warning: NSFW language):

Tired of the back and forth @Jaguars. Let’s get this shit done.

@TonyKhan Since your feeling might today let’s both let the world in on the truth. We been had a discussion that the chargers game was my last game. Yet you try to back door the situation without answering any of my camps calls. Smh you spoiled bra.. holding up people for no reason 🤡

@TonyKhan Just trade me . I don’t need the speech 🏁

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported Monday the Jaguars have had trade talks but no offers from other teams and now "things are quiet."

Jordan Raanan of ESPN reported earlier this month the Jaguars are seeking "a first-round pick and more."

Ngakoue has impressed on the field since joining the team as a third-round pick in 2016. He's totaled 37.5 sacks in the past four years, including at least eight sacks in each season. In 2017, the pass-rusher set a career high with 12 sacks while leading the NFL with six forced fumbles.

It was enough to earn a franchise tag from Jacksonville, although he made it clear in March he didn't have interest in signing a long-term deal.

If he remains with the team, he will make $17.8 million on a one-year tender for 2020, per Spotrac.

The recent social media posting indicates he's still looking to leave town, but there is limited time for the team to make a move ahead of Thursday's NFL draft.
