Clowney would be the only DL on our team getting double teams.

And even those numbers will be subject to a physical - whenever that can be completed.

 

He can get on a plane for a physical.  They are still flying them...

Ed Oliver and Star regularly got double teamed - that is what opened things up for Shaq and Jordan Phillips. But you are not at all wrong in saying Clowney will consistently command double teams and that will open up sacks for the others. He is worth way more than the 10 mill per / one year prove it deal people are bandying around.

Umm - it takes more than a plane ride. NFL is currently restricting physicals.

The NFL's current directive and restrictions on conducting physicals could be a big reason teams might be skittish on paying a truckload for Clowney without having their own medical personnel take a look.

When you can't sell your Car or House the price is too high.

 

He needs to adjust his expectations clearly most teams have set a value plus his recent surgery all combine to scare teams off.

Not quite yet. He was barely getting 50% of the snaps last season.

He's really good, but not worth what he wants.

I agree, but he may have to lower his lofty expectations.

I think he means you wouldn't be able to double Oliver if you are doubling up on Clowney...and who is Oliver saying Hi to?

Clowney may not get you 15 sacks but he potentially adds 15 sacks to the other DL numbers. 

Which would be a cool story if not for the fact that the 2018 Seahawks D had 43 sacks and the 2019 team (with Clowney) had 28 sacks.

He should be ... he’s more “name” than production throughout his career. 

 

But, but........didn’t you see that one play in college where he went unblocked that made him into a Super Hero???

 

It must suck to think you are a super hot “10”, only to learn the rest of the world thinks you’re just an OK  7.

That only bans team personnel from traveling to see a player or a player coming to the team.

 

He can get a physical by any doctor the team physician recommends and trusts.   Simple solution they are already working on.  He could fly to see Dr. Andrews, who could do at least a thorough exam as any of these part-time team sports docs, for example.

 

Pretty simple.

Mario was on Bruce Smith's level in terms of pure talent. Clowney I am not so sure about.

 Clowney is a physical specimen/athletic freak. That being said, he is no Mario Williams and light years from Bruce. I would still celebrate if we signed him to a decently team friendly deal. We must be able to retain Milano and Tre, and it would be nice to extend Dawkins as well.
