What team will sign Jadeveon Clowney?
The NFL is going to start without several free agents signed to a team. There is one question that everybody wants to be answered before the season kickoffs. What team will sign Jadeveon Clowney? According to the odds there is one team that is a favorite, but that does not tell the whole story. The one thing that we have realized, he is not making it easy.
More from @CharlesRobinson on Clowney, teams are saying they have implored Clowney’s agent to get him involved in conversations, agent saying “he will try” to get Clowney to even get on phone with teams. “Teams are like, ‘This is crazy.'”

Are the Raiders the next team up?
NFL defensive free-agents are flying off the board and the assumption is that Clowney has to be next. One of the teams that may be moving to the front of the Clowney sweepstakes is the Las Vegas Raiders.
Yannick Ngakoue is headed to Minnesota. Jadeveon Clowney, anyone? https://t.co/MccM3qWGOu

The Raiders improved on nearly every level of defense in the offseason and adding Clowney will be the icing on the cake. He will compliment other players and add another pass rushing to the Raiders defense. The Raiders are aggressive in getting players and this seems like an obvious move. But the closer it comes to the start of the season, the more Clowney’s value drops, leaving the door open for other teams.
Will Clowney sign with the Seahawks?
Clowney has been attached to the Seattle Seahawks since the start of free agency. But news and rumors about deals breaking down almost assures he will go to another team. The Jamal Adams trade may make it a guarantee. Clowney will not play in Seattle.
Multiple teams have been connected with Clowney to include the Cleveland Browns, New York Jets and the New England Patriots. Is there a surprise team trying to grab the pass-rusher to bolster their defense? How about the San Francisco 49ers?
There’s a rumor that the #49ers reached out to Jadeveon Clowney. Thoughts:
– SF only has $11.5M in cap room, not accounting for a Kittle extension.
– Would Clowney sign a 1-year deal below market value to ring chase?
– Any pass-rush depth = great.
– Damontre Moore more likely.

The 49ers were very close to winning a Super Bowl a year ago and grabbing a pass rusher to harass a quarterback will only help their cause.
So what team will sign Jadeveon Clowney?
It’s the New England Patriots. Everything that you read will suggest that the Patriots have “no chance” to sign Clowney. But, the Patriots did just have several defensive players opt out of the season. Although Clowney is a pure pass rusher that does not always fit the scheme of the Patriots, he is just what this team needs. It is clear that Clowney is looking for a short-term deal to prove that he can still play. Signing a deal full of incentives will get him what he wants and that is exactly what the Patriots do.
