Jadeveon Clowney is the crown jewel of this free agency class. He was the top pick in the draft back in 2014. He can play either linebacker or defensive end and be just as effective at either spot. Even though he has yet to hit double-digit sacks in a single year, his potential is still there.
That potential will lead to Clowney getting paid a large sum of money. He is still one of the most talented guys in the entire league. The question has always been his motor and drive. He doesn’t always play every down with the most effort he can.
Because of that, he hasn’t produced as high as he can. But a new contract with a new team could change that. Houston hasn’t produced in the playoffs as well as they could have with him, including an embarrassing loss to the Colts just this past season.
The Colts would do well to sign any one of these guys. They can all help the team win immediately and in the future as well.
