Pending unrestricted free agent Jadeveon Clowney wants to play for contender

I disagree.  I think this team has really great solid core and a ton of depth.  They need PLAYMAKERS.  Yes the offense needs a WR, yes another RB is needed and yes the OL still needs some help.  However, I don't believe I was the only one watching Clowney push Rodgers all over the field yesterday.  Maybe he isn't the guy for this team but that talent level is what is needed.  Give me 2 maybe 3 playmakers and a solid draft class and I'll be super happy.  

 

I 100% agree.  This FA needs to be about getting quality playmakers.  We have a ton of above-average guys, we need a few elite guys beyond Tre.

I wouldn't want the Bills to throw money at Clowney.  He's going to disappear once he gets paid, and I'd prefer for the opposition to wrap that anchor around their necks.

Clowney or another top pass rusher is worth more than combined 90, 93 and 97. The D will be unbeatable because getting to the QB consistently with the front 4 will free up Frazier and McD to dictate the matchups.  

 

That's the thing though, Clowney isn't a top flight pass rusher.  He is a disruptor for sure but as for sacking the QB he has 32 over 75 games or just under a half sack a game.  Jordan Phillips put up more sacks this year than Clowney ever has, Shaq had more sack than him this year.  I don't want it to seem like I don't think Clowney is a very good player but he is about to get a top of the market contract and I don't know that he is worth that.

My big concern with Clowney is the constant injuries. It’s the reason why I don’t want them to sign AJ Green. Now, if those injuries fade because we have better medical staff and facilities I’d be happy to see that level of talent on the team. It’s something we won’t have a grasp on unless he’s signed. I will say that Beane has taken shots on injury prone players (Murphy, Kroft) and most haven’t worked out. Although Murphy stayed healthy this year. 

 

I think Kroft and Murhpy were both necessary risks at the time given the current state of TE and DL when they were signed.  I expect (hope) Kroft is gone this year and we see Hooper/Knox at TE. 

 

Clowney's injuries do worry me because we have a good DL now.  We need a guy to make it elite.  If he's not out there, he can't help.   I'll trust our medical people.  I really won't freak out if we do or don't get him because I trust Bean with this.

The real question is - how would he get along with Ed Oliver & would Ed say he sucks too?

Clowney is over rated.

 

The amount of stupid penalties he takes is concerning as well.

During the game last night I swear they said he was playing hurt and needed surgery in the off season. I would love to have him in our team, but after surgery and for top dollar? I am not so sure.

I doubt that he is the kind of "team first" player that Beans and McDermott are looking for.

 

Let him go to the Raiders.

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 

Should have been ejected after that hit.  Fine their crooked too!

Well if he wants to play for a contender so bad he won’t demand a 100 million dollar contract for 3-4 good games a season. He can say all he wants but most contending teams can not afford to pay what he was asking from the Texans.

he may be a jerk, and he is injury prone, but his (admittedly dumb sounding statements) came at a heated moment after a loss and just shows where his head is at.  he wants to win.

 

one thing about him, yes his lack of huge sacks is a concern, is that of all the top flight guys (i figure there are 4 of them, maybe five hitting FA this season if they don't get tagged) he most fits into and most shows being happy with being 1/11.

 

he's gonna want around 20MM per year of course, but he seems pretty happy to do the dirty work, take on lead blockers, drop, keep a controlled edge, as well as chase the qb and stick with it.  his speed and slightly below jumbo size doesn't seem to hit him in the run game.  he also plays hard and dirty and injured, which is exactly what we need.

 

i'm still not saying he's our best guy, or even who they want or would be willing to sign with us, but McBean have shown they want size speed aggressive athletes in the front 7, look at who they had in carolina and how they are building up buffalo.  

 

give me hooper, cooper, clowney, get another WR in the draft (maybe even trade up) and either sign or draft an RT to compete and draft an RB2 and SAM and all the things that let us down vs houston are gone.  no more 3rd and long converts, no more qb's running past the edge, and we have talent on the outside on O to actually match up and we don't go turtle when our RB1 is on the pine.

In place of Murph, not Shaq. JMO. You forgot to mention Ed. We have a couple of 3techs who can bring pressure up the middle. With Clowney bringing it from the edge look out. He would also shore up the run D, something we could well use at times. 

 

ya, that's a disgusting front 4 and while i think it would lead to more sacks what it would really do is lead to more turnovers

Pending unrestricted free agent Jadeveon Clowney wants to play for contender

 

GREEN BAY, Wisc. -- Jadeveon Clowney said his priority in free agency will be to play for a contender.

"I just want to win," the defensive end said after the Seattle Seahawks' season came to an end with a 28-23 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at Lambeau Field. "I'm trying to get to the Super Bowl by any means. That's what I'm looking for: Who's going to get me there? I ain't looking to get on no sorry team for no money. That ain't going to fly. I ain't gonna put my body through all of that just to lose no 16 games, go home with my check. I'd hate that, so that ain't what I'm doing. So if I can't win no Super Bowl, I ain't going to no team that can't win."

 

Clowney, who turns 27 next month, headlines the list of Seahawks scheduled to become unrestricted free agents in March and will be one of the top available pass-rushers on the market. His first order of offseason business will be to determine if he'll have surgery on the core-muscle injury that has plagued him since Week 10. He said he probably will, though Clowney decided to put off surgery after a November visit to Dr. William Meyers, a core-muscle specialist in Philadelphia.  

 

... 

 

 

 

Love the attitude... Didn't want before bc of high price tag, but if this is what he really believes, I want him.

Clowney strikes me as the type who will play for the Pat*#$@, thinking they're going to the Super Bowl next year, because PFF and ESPN and the national polls and Vegas like them... let him join the Evil (crumbling) Empire, if you ask me.

How rich would that be? The second he signs that contract, Brady announces his retirement

So he wants to ride along on a championship team? Why would a team that can win a championship without him want to give him a big contract? This guy sounds like a total loser to me. If Houston and Seattle aren’t good enough for him, nowhere will be good enough.

There’s 7 “I”’s in his explanation. No thanks. Over-hyped player. He had one big hit in college and is not a difference maker...nor is he a Beane type. 

 

I think thats a sound track int he background 

 

All aboard!

A few thoughts here:

1) yes, Buffalo is a team that can win now

2) I suspect his agent knows this

3) I suspect his agent will also be well aware of Buffalo’s reputation for being ahead of the curve in terms of getting and keeping players healthy 

4) I think many folks on this board have not watched much of Clowney. He’s an absolute animal. He RACKS up TFLs regardless of who’s around him, and mostly in systems that aren’t suited to his skill set 

5) He has a good relationship with Brian Gaine. Gaine is the one that fought for giving Clowney a mega deal to stay in Houston. O’Brien said no. 

 

 

I don't know how Seattle can afford to let him leave.........their defense was punchless without him.

They have plenty of cap space and gave up real assets to get him.

I'm still not sure why they gave up on Frank Clark but it just seems like they'd go to the table to keep Clowney with nothing behind him.

 

I was surprised they dropped him in coverage on that game clinching play yesterday...........that would be top of page TBD material if that were the Bills and they played it like that.
