Clowney interest in playing close to home

if he's affordable and we've got the cash, why not? 

still would prefer we focus on getting some beef in the middle of the DL to help shut down run games.

Totally agree.  It would be nice if that beef could collapse the pocket as well.

I posted earlier in the offseason after we lost Reddick that he would be ideal.

Good to hear he's interested, but I have a feeling we're not or there would have already been rumors of talks or interest on both sides prior to this.  No he didn't become the next Peppers, but he's very good and as others have said, great against the run.  It would be nice to finally have one side of the line stout against the run and hopefully Burns continues to develop in that aspect so we don't have to get cute and shift personnel on any given down.

I hope the interest is mutual and we get him.

He never reached his potential but is a solid player.  Sign him up.  That spot across from Burns is open as far as I can tell.  I like Barno but he should play more of pass rush specialist.

Thehe Panthers have the most cap space in the NFL at approximately $30.1 million and would be able to sign Clowney if they are interested.

If Clowney could be signed to a team friendly contract it would be  a welcomed addition to the Panthers defense that just lost its leading sack leader from a year ago.

He is a three-time Pro Bowler fresh off a 2021 campaign where he totaled 9.0 sacks, 19 quarterback hits and 11 tackles for a loss over 14 outings. Whats not to like?

1 year deal for a $10 mil or less price, I'd be down. Not really that interested in a long term deal or much more than that price.

He would be a big upgrade at DE but he is also not an elite player at DE so I don't want to see an elite player price.

Clowney is one of the most over hyped, over rated NFL prospects and players the past twenty years if not of all time. Sort of like Zion in a way that they developed this like cult following and got clicks thru social media. 
 

Where he attended high school or college has absolutely nothing to do with this. He is a JAG and would bring nothing to the team. 

Literally such a bad take lmfao. With your logic Burns was a JAG last year as they had the same amount of sacks while Clowney is also a great run defender. Man if anything Clowney is underrated nowadays. Would be a great signing bring ‘em home!

Sort of like Zion? lmao

Zion averaged 27/9 in his first year playing with incredible efficiency and was already the best finisher around the rim in the NBA.

If Zion bust out of the league it'll be because of his health, not because he was "overrated"

You don't know what the hell you're talking about.
