A Bowie-native is coming to Baltimore to play for the Ravens in a trade announced Thursday. The Ravens have agreed in principle, pending the passing of a physical, with the Minnesota Vikings to a trade for Pro Bowl defensive end Yannick Ngakoue in exchange for undisclosed draft picks, Ravens executive vice president and general manager Eric DeCosta announced Thursday.

"We are excited to add Yannick Ngakoue to our football team," DeCosta said in a statement. "Yannick is someone who we are very familiar with going back to the draft process years ago. He is an exciting player and a dangerous pass rusher who makes us better. Yannick grew up here. He's the type of person we welcome in our building. Finally, we are not finished building this team, as we continue to chase our ultimate goals."

Here are some notes about the 6-foot-2-inch tall, 246-pound Ngakoue:
