Number Two: Clowney Won’t Break the Bank

Aside from the massive payday to guard Andrus Peat, the New Orleans Saints have landed some great talent this offseason for cheaper than normal. Players are well aware of the winning culture in New Orleans as their 37-11 win-loss record over the past three seasons ranks the best in the NFL.

Jadeveon Clowney has already turned down a very lucrative offer from the Cleveland Browns because he mentioned that he would rather take less money and play for a contending team.

Of the major contending teams, the Saints seem to be the only interested organization. Due to the Saints’ outstanding ability to create more cap space and wiggle some pieces around the organization, I’m confident they could strike a deal with Jadeveon Clowney.

Jadeveon Clowney wants to be a part of a winning organization and he could do just that in the Big Easy.

I could see the Saints signing him to a one-year “prove it” deal and give him an opportunity to ball out and get paid significantly more in 2021 much like Teddy Bridgewater did. The Saints sure could use the help and should meet his standards to get a deal done.
