Jadeveon Clowney would bring physicality to Carolina Panthers’ pass-rush
Many expected Jadeveon Clowney to put up Pro Football Hall of Fame numbers before entering the league out of South Carolina, where he managed to secure some extraordinary highlights en route to becoming the No. 1 overall selection in 2014.
While Clowney hasn’t attained this truly elite level in terms of production, his physicality in getting after the quarterback is something that can be a real asset to the Carolina Panthers in this situation.
Clowney has achieved 41 sacks, 86 tackles for loss, and 106 quarterback hits throughout his career. He was a constant menace for the Cleveland Browns in 2021 working opposite Myles Garrett and a potential partnership with Brian Burns could bring around similar results.
The Panthers appear confident in Yetur Gross-Matos making big-time strides in his third season. They also re-signed Marquis Haynes, who might benefit from increased reps after shining from a rotational role over the last two years.
With that being said, the chance to sign Clowney is an opportunity those in power would be wise to explore. But the player could also be waiting for a chance to land on a roster with more promising chances of contending at this stage of his career.
Still, there is no harm in asking.
