Saints: 2 must-sign FAs still available this late in the offseason
Currently, the New Orleans Saints employ Cameron Jordan and Marcus Davenport on the edge of the defensive line. While this is a good duo, it has the possibility to become even better by adding Jadeveon Clowney before the start of the season.
Jadeveon Clowney was drafted in 2014 by the Houston Texans. He played opposite J.J. Watt for the first part of his career, and he ended up making it to three straight Pro-Bowls to end out his rookie contract with the Texans.
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 yet another team willing to take on a massive contract.
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 a long-term solution because he is young. However, this offseason, Clowney would have to settle for signing a measly one-year, roughly $5 million contract to get through.
However, he would have the chance at a Super Bowl.
