Tennessee Titans: Free agent wish list for 2020 offseason
EDGE Jadeveon Clowney
Outside of some of the quarterbacks that could potentially hit the open market, star pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney is arguably the biggest fish to be caught come March.
The Seahawks star pass-rusher is only 27 years old and will be entering what should be the prime of his career. There is a chance at the very least that Clowney is franchise tagged, which will ultimately prevent him from testing the market.
However, his refusal to play on the franchise tag with Houston last year is what eventually landed him in Seattle, so that is clearly not the ideal scenario for both parties. Clowney only started 11 games in 2019 and saw a slight drop in his production because of it, but there was no denying that he was an absolute force when healthy.
Clowney finished his 2019 season with 31 tackles, seven tackles for loss, 13 quarterback hits, three sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, one interception, and one defensive touchdown.
Someone that can produce like that in only 11 starts is going to cause a bidding war come March, which will eventually cause one team to break the bank if they want Clowney’s services in 2020 and beyond.
It is not much of a secret that this Titans team must find a productive EDGE this offseason in the worst possible way if they’re going to take that step from contender to champion. Unfortunately, Tennessee has a plethora of their own free agents to take care of which leaves the harsh reality that Clowney’s price tag will likely be too steep for the Titans to pull off.
