Yannick Ngakoue is making himself at home in Indianapolis after joining Colts
Since joining the Indianapolis Colts, defensive end Yannick Ngakoue has consistently expressed his excitement to be in Indy.
Early this offseason, one of the first moves for the Indianapolis Colts was trading for defensive end Yannick Ngakoue. Ngakoue is a quality pass-rusher that has made a Pro Bowl before and is coming off a 10-sack season. His arrival in Indianapolis has brought a lot of excitement to fans.
Turns out, Ngakoue may be just as excited. Since the trade, Ngakoue has made clear how happy he is to be a part of the Colts, and recently, he’s taken to Twitter to interact with fans and has been planning ways to get more involved as an Indianapolis citizen.
It started when Ngakoue asked his followers for restaurant recommendations. Surely enough, a ton of suggestions poured in, and Yannick made clear that he was noting the many recommendations. Once he figured out good places to eat, Ngakoue took things back to the football field.
Yannick told fans that he enjoys spending his off time watching high school games and asked what are the best Friday Night matchups he should attend in the fall. Just like the restaurants, Ngakoue got plenty of recommendations.

As fans expressed their appreciation for Ngakoue’s engagement, he replied, “Embracing the place I now call home.” Fans are also embracing his presence and hoping that he will be able to call Indy home for many more years.
While Ngakoue is preparing for his first season with the Colts, he does only have one year remaining on his contract. Everyone is hoping that he balls out this year, brings a pass rush back to Indy, and earns an extension to stay with the team past this season.
If that happens, not only will the Colts be better on the field in the coming years, but Indy will also have another star player that is engaged in the Indianapolis community.
