5 available free agents that could help the Tennessee Titans
Jadeveon Clowney, EDGE
You can’t make a list like this without including Clowney.
This whole news cycle has been eerily similar to the Tom Brady rumors from a couple of months ago. It was widely speculated that the Titans and Patriots were the frontrunners for Brady, and now it’s been reported the Titans and Seahawks are the finalists in the Clowney sweepstakes.
Similarly to Brady, Clowney also has ties with Mike Vrabel, spending time in Houston together.
The problem with Clowney, and why he’s still available, is his questionable medical history. Clowney has only played all 16 games in a season once: 2017. 2017 was also Clowney’s best year from a statistical standpoint, garnering 59 tackles and 9.5 sacks. After being traded from Houston to Seattle, Clowney collected 31 tackles and 3 sacks in 2019.
This stat may surprise you, but Clowney has never had double-digit sacks in a season. However, sacks aren’t the only thing he brings to the table. Offenses have to game-plan for Clowney because he is capable of completely taking over a game. This allows Harold Landry to face blockers 1-on-1 and opens things up a bit.
Clowney has purportedly lowered his price tag, and as long as he isn’t wanting an exorbitant amount of money, I absolutely think the Titans should sign him.
He would join Landry, Beasley, Correa, and Walker on the edge, as the group would suddenly go from a weakness to a strength.
To add more fuel to the fire, the Titans recently signed CB Johnathan Joseph, who is reportedly a close friend of Clowney.
It will be interesting to see how this saga plays out.
