All attention has turned to the 2021 NFL Draft. Despite that, free agency isn’t over.
The first and second waves certainly are, but leading up to and even after the draft there’s plenty of veterans that are currently looking for teams that will be signed. With that in mind, Bleacher Report looked at that bunch and pegged a fit for every NFL team. For Buffalo, it’s a known name,
B/R thinks pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney would be good addition for the Bills. Here’s why:
The Bills lost a pair of defensive ends in Trent Murphy and Quinton Jefferson in free agency and desperately need to replace that production. Two of the more impactful pass-rushers on the roster right now are aging, with Jerry Hughes (32) and Mario Addison (33) both well past the wrong side of 30.
Jadeveon Clowney represents the best chance for this squad to add a younger, disruptive force on the defensive line for the 2021 season. The 28-year-old should still have plenty left in the tank despite amassing just three sacks over his last 21 games with the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks.
Clowney’s talent certainly would be welcomed in Buffalo. Despite his low sack numbers, he previously found ways to get the quarterback early in his career and Pro Football Focus is still high on him in recent years. In 2020, his overall grade on the edge was a solid 74.9 mark.
The hard thing…
