Clowney's popularity in Western Europe just skyrocketed.
Believe me, NOBODY knows Clowney in Western Europe and will ever know him, except the very few football insiders here. Other than them, NOBODY knows anything about football players. No Farve, no Eli, no Cam, no Marino, no nobody. Not even Björn Werner. The only player football outsiders know is Brady - and guess who has to do with that.
That deal may help Puma in the US, but does nothing for the company in Europe.
I am fine with having Olsen on the roster, signing a good vet in the next days, drafting two WRs in the first four rounds and compliment it with King, Mc Nutt and maybe LaFell. Sure, letting go Smitty, Ginn, Mitchell, Gross, Munnerlyn and Co. hurt in parts on a personal level, but I still trust Gman 100 percent. I can't believe the hysterie here. It's only 4 days into FA, the draft is two months away and people talk about an upcomming 4-12. We need to stop panicing.
