Pending unrestricted free agent Jadeveon Clowney wants to play for contender

That would still keep money for the others, correct.

 

Problem is, at 26 he certainly would be looking for a minimum 4 year contract to put him at his final contract at 30/31 years old.  He's going to want more than $30 over the life of that contract.  2 year deal is more of a "prove it" contract.

It wouldn't be a prove it price. 2 years $50 million fully guaranteed. Gives him another big deal after this is up.

 

Aaron Donald basically received a 2 year $50 million fully guaranteed contract as well. I don't see any team topping this for Clowney. You never know.

 

I think Clowney would consider it.

Don't see the fascination with this guy. I don't find him to be an elite player like Donald or Mack yet hype always surrounds him. Doesn't seem to be a process guy and seems to be all about himself.

I'd be looking for players that say "How can I help get the team there" as opposed to "Who gonna get me there". 

 

That's the type of attitude that just wouldn't do well with the players we have that believe in the 1/11. Clowney can be a Clown elsewhere.

This. Could not have said this better myself.

He's a beast. Receives a lot of attention from offenses. You can coach what he has. He would be fantastic fit for us scheme wise.

Donald singed a 6 year $135 million contract in 2018.

 

Yeah, Clowney may take a short contract with big dollars.  I personally don't believe he fits in with the Bills culture.  Been a "me" guy his whole career and his statement reeks of "me first".

He plays hard, plays hurt and wants to win. Disagree that the 3 sacks are a true representation of his impact.

He's missed games in 5 out of 6 seasons.   Averages 6  sacks a year and is going on 27 years old.   Again, I think he is an exceptional edge setter.  But no way in hell am I paying anywhere near 20 million dollars a season for a guy who isn't in the top five in the league is sacks.     He is a good player.   But he isn't the type of game changer that guys like Khalil Mack, Von Miller, and Chandler Jones are.    He isnt even the best pass rusher in his own free agency class.

To me he's the guy to go after. We have 90 million in cap and can make a bunch more cap avalable cutting Kroft and Murphy. I have always liked Clowney and I do think he would excel in our defense.

Rams can cut Donald after next year and save a lot of cap, they won't but can. NFL contracts are only worth what you are fully guaranteed at signing.

Well, we wouldn’t have to worry about him getting any Roughing the passer flags🤓

 That would definitely change if he were playing for the BILLS.

I would guess he doesn't view us as that kind of team, but guess we'll see this offseason.

The Bills were one pass rusher away from going to AFC Championship, and possibly SB this year.

He would be a dream signing.  I wonder if someone like Dawkins could convince him we are a SB bound team.

To justify the contract he's going to get he would need to be a top 5 DE in the NFL... i don't think he's that.

Maybe a flukey run, sure. I think any of this year’s playoff teams are technically capable of a fluke run. I don’t think our offense is near good enough yet to be a serious contender. 
 

But more importantly, I don’t think players from other teams view us as a contender regardless of whether you think we are or aren’t.

Lots of double and even a rare triple negatives too. That takes planning.

 

 

I was hoping for subtitles.

Clowney is a swiss army knife in the front 7. He can be lined up at Sam LB, either DE spot, nickel/dime DT, or as a LB/DE in a 3-4 scheme. Frazier's defense is at the point now where they can add layers of complexity to confuse even the most experienced of QB's and advance from really good to legendary. Clowney could singlehandedly do this for Frazier. Clowney's impact is not measured in personal sacks as much as it in the statistics of the overall defense. I wouldn't be shocked to learn that Brain Gaine is pushing Beane hard to go after him.

Yesterday he chased Rodgers twice and his speed was tremendous. Rodgers threw away ball to avoid sack. I remembered Clowney's combine when all told he is freak of nature. His 40time was impossible for his size. Pairing with JJ Watt in Houston it looked scary. on paper. In reality it was nothing special. 

Me first attitude is worrysome. But we need a real DE instead of Murphy

He certainly knows how to endear himself to a prospective employer... he could stand to employ a press agent, and keep his pie hole closed more frequently, it would up his odds of the contract he want by a fair amount...

If he doesn't think the Seahawks are a contender he definitely would not consider the Bills to be one.

Don’t want him. I’d much rather we cut Murphy, re-sign Shaq and go after Jordan Jenkins in free agency.

I doubt the Bills go after him. Beane has already said many times over he wants to build thru the draft and then resign our own players. Whatever moves the Bills make in FA probably won't be the top FA's who cost big $$$.

Irrespective of them ignoring that hit on Wentz, he’s one of - if not the most -penalized player in the league. I know he has the most in the league last year

I would certainly show due diligence in making him a Bill if I was GM

I'll tell you what I aint doing.  I aint paying no sorry defensive end 7 million dollars a sack.  I aint paying him that, not to sit there and watch him collect his check and not play a full season, I'd hate that.

Will you pay him to jump Offside on the regular?
