Here’s the big one. The one you probably clicked on this article for.
The No. 1 pick of the 2014 NFL Draft is now on the market once again. For the past few seasons, Jadeveon Clowney has gone from team to team to help spark his career again. From the Houston Texans, he landed in Seattle and played one season for the Seahawks where he underwhelmed, recording just three sacks in 13 games.
A year later, Clowney signed a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans and had virtually no impact in eight games. However, this past season, he enjoyed a nice resurgent season with the Cleveland Browns in which he had nine sacks, 11 tackles for loss, and two forced fumbles in 14 games.
After his improved season, the 29-year-old is more than likely looking for a long-term deal in which the price range is unknown. The Cowboys would be foolish to not get in contact with the star pass rusher to gauge what his price will be. He would more than fill the hole left by Gregory and could thrive alongside Lawrence. Not only that, but Clowney can also play off-ball linebacker so there is more versatility as well.
No matter how they do it, the Cowboys will be adding a pass rusher by May. The replacement for Gregory will be put into a very good situation with help from Dan Quinn, Parsons, and Lawrence. If they live up to expectations, this defense could be even scarier next season.
