An abusive father. Cockroaches. Depression. The 27-year-old edge rusher opens up like never before to Go Long. It's been a tumultuous life but he knows for certain that 2022 is his year.
THIS is journalism. Thank you.
Nice read. Hope yall keep at this :)
I'm a lifelong Raider fan & a lover of the NFL, and all of it's organizations. I was super excited to sign Yannick to Vegas. I knew his game well. Or at least I thought I did. I expected big things from Yannick. And he had a pretty solid year with 10 sacks & 36 pressures. The problem that became clear to me week after week, is that Yannick would disappear from long stretches of the game. And when Crosby was routinely making plays from the 1st snap to the last, Yannick would make plays periodically. I watched as the game got deep into the 3rd & 4th quarters, when we needed Yannick to make a play the most, he was unseen or not heard from. Maybe it's because he's undersized & after he gets more tired as the game progresses, it becomes easier for the tackle to get hands on Yannick & keep him at bay. Yannick would best be fit as a situational pass rusher. Keep him fresh & let him get after the qb on passing downs. Yannick does have a great 1st step. If you can keep that step from running out of gas, that would be the key. Wishing Yannick all the success in the world. After reading this article, I cant wait to see Kolton Miller get hands on. Good luck and best wishes!
