Star pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney has curiosity about joining the Eagles
Here we are in early July and standout pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney continues to be a free agent waiting to sign a contract with a team in need of a stud defensive end. Could that team end up being the Philadelphia Eagles?
Per a report, Clowney has curiosity about multiple businesses, including the boys from the City of Brotherly Love. If the Eagles are serious about winning the NFC East again and building a push for a deep postseason run in the prime of Carson Wentz’s career, the leading office has to go out and land Clowney.
Signing Jadeveon Clowney should be important for the Philadelphia Eagles
General manager Howie Roseman is a magician when it comes to making great deals and moves for the Eagles. Things should really be no different here. While Philly won’t be able to afford to sign Clowney to a monster, multi-year deal, why not go get him for a one-year prove-it kind of contract?
Clowney’s market has significantly shrunk, and there’s no chance he’s likely to get a four or five-year deal. However, if the dollars are right, the Eagles could bring him in on a short-term deal in 2020, that is the expectation for the sort of contract Clowney will end up signing.
The Seahawks are obviously also interested in bringing Clowney right back, as the 6-5, 255-pounder is coming off a 2019 in which that he posted 31 tackles, three sacks and an interception returned for a touchdown.
For Clowney, needless to say he cares about the money, but it seems like the priority for him is to join a competitive team. The Eagles have the pieces to make a lot of noise in the NFC, but certainly are a couple parts away from really sending themselves over the top.
Adding a man like Clowney would make the defense even stronger and instill plenty of fear into the Dallas Cowboys. It’d be a win-win for both parties. All eyes are actually on Roseman. Let’s see if they can get something done.
