Seahawks should boost one-year offer to Jadeveon Clowney
By Lee Vowell
The Seahawks reportedly offered Jadeveon Clowney a one-year deal for $15 million. Seattle needs to up the offer and get Clowney to sign.
2020 has sucked, y’all! Maybe not personally but globally, yeah. And one thing that would help 12s specifically, is if the Seahawks were to sign someone to help their pass rush for 2020. That person needs to be Jadeveon Clowney because we know he is good and he was good with Seattle in 2019.
Sure, his sack totals were low. But let’s be real. Might I suggest that you work at a factory line? All the people, and I mean all of them, don’t compress the same Toyota parts per hour that you have the ability to do so you can only compress 2 per hour. The Toyota factory normality nationwide for your skillset is 8 to 10 per hour. But if you have a bunch of co-workers that at their best can compress 3 parts, then you will be held back.
This was Jadeveon Clowney’s plight in 2019. He is a good football player but seemingly worked with a lot of people last year who probably should have been working in a Toyota factory. (No offense to Toyota because they make fine cars.)
Seahawks offer to Clowney
Anyway, the Seahawks have reportedly offered Clowney a one-year and $15 million deal. That is too low. If that offer were for three or four years, then maybe the offer is fine. But this is a one-year offer. Make it $18 million.
Seattle might lose Clowney after 2020, but by then maybe L.J. Collier has shown himself to be a decent pro. Possibly rookie Darrell Taylor or Alton Robinson have proven to be solid guys. If that is the case, Clowney can walk.
But until those things hold true, the Seahawks need pass-rushing help and Jadeveon Clowney supplies that. Seattle, please. If you want to go far in the playoffs this season, free up some money and sign Mr, Clowney. Otherwise, the NFC West dogs might feast on the Seahawks bones.
