Ravens are a “wild card” for Jadeveon Clowney

Clowney is “mulling offers”

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, free agent pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney is reportedly mulling offers from the Titans and Saints, while the Ravens are a “wild card”.

Fowler noted that the Ravens had made a serious push for Clowney a few weeks ago. Last week, Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network reported the Ravens may be “in the lead” for Clowney on the NFL Draft Insiders Podcast.

Currently, the Ravens have $16.6 million in available cap space. Clowney has been rumored to be seeking a contract worth $17-18 million per year, so the Ravens may have to free up some additional cap space to sign him. The Titans have plenty of room to sign Clowney ($21.7 million), while the Saints would definitely have to make additional moves ($6.9 million).

When asked about Clowney, head coach John Harbaugh said, “I think anybody would have an interest in a player of that caliber certainly.”

Clowney would join an already improved pass rush in Baltimore. Calais Campbell and Derek Wolfe joined the defensive line this offseason, and Matt Judon is returning after a 9.5-sack season.
