Should the Saints sign Jadeveon Clowney?
Jadeveon Clowney is the younger of the two defensive ends. He was drafted in 2014 by the Houston Texans. He played opposite J.J. Watt for the first part of his career. He made it to three straight Pro-Bowls to end out his rookie contract.
After his price tag went through the roof, Clowney signed with the Seattle Seahawks on a one-year, $15 million deal. Well, that one year is up and Clowney finds himself no closer to a Super Bowl and looking for another team.
Last season, Clowney only started 11 games and totaled only 3.0 sacks, 31 tackles, and three hits on the quarterback. Honestly, that is nothing to be impressed about. However, in his best season, Clowney totaled 9.5 sacks, 59 tackles, and 21 hits on the quarterback.
Jadeveon Clowney definitely offers more on the long-term side because he is younger. The other big question with Clowney is if he can mesh with the defense. Adding a big ego to an already stacked defense might cause some problems.
