New York Giants Signing Jadeveon Clowney
Are the New York Giants signing Jadeveon Clowney this offseason? Things are trending in that direction.
The defensive lineman is obviously one of the best players on the market this offseason. Although he did not do much following his trade from the Houston Texans to the Seattle Seahawks, Clowney is still versatile enough and talented enough to do some real damage when he wants to.
As such, it is no surprise that multiple teams are lining up to be his suitor.
One squad in particular that wants him is New York. And the interest appears to be mutual.
According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, Clowney to the Giants makes a lot of sense for all involved. He apparently wants to land in New York, and the team has a lot of cap space available to make a big play for him.
The Giants are currently in the process of figuring out their offense, but they have a decent amount of young talent to work with already on that side of the ball. The defense, however, needs much work.
There is a reasonable case to be made that the reason New York has won all of 12 outings in the last three years is its inept defense, not offense.
Clowney would go a long way in addressing that.
The 27-year-old played in 13 outings for Seattle last year following a trade from Houston. In that span, he recorded 31 tackles, three sacks an interception and four forced fumbles.
Between 2017 and 2018 with the Texans Clowney recorded 18.5 sacks.
Clowney is expected to be seeking something in the $20 million range on his next deal. Will the Giants pony up? Time will tell.
