    He will cost way more than the production warrants

    No interest whatsoever in Princess Clowney.

    I'm interested in any DE that can help. Problem is cost.

    Yeah, if Clowney wants to play for around 6 mil, sure, I'll take him. He is good, he's just not good enough to warrant 20 mil/season.

    I'd sign him for 7-9 million.

    Lets see how he does healthy nd with the team for all of training camp. He's the most talented DE ever. He's also the biggest flop ever. so far

    He's an athletic freak but it hasn't resulted in any elite performances from him.

    yeah I agree.
    Never know what you will get with the Clownshow ...I’ve seen him look unblockable and dominate offenses and I’ve seen him show no effort for long stretches...he is wicked talented but I don’t trust his head for a big contract

    For all of the hype, has he ever had double digit sacks in a season?

    What Clowney brings to the table is 6-10 sacks a year, position flexibility, and godly run defense. I think $12M-$15M is a fair price for the disruption he brings to the table. For $20M, there's not a chance he will live up to that. DLaw is about Clowney's equal as a run defender and is a better/more consistent pass rusher. If you guys don't like his deal at $20M a season, you'd really be upset with Clowney

    This is also why Houston wanted to get rid of him. BOB was not going to give him the money he wanted, and Clowney didn't want to play for a team who he knew would just franchise tag him and then dump him on the curb.

    overrated and another distraction we don't need. This is a great draft if you need a dlinemen/edge guy. PASS on Clowney.

    I'd be so happy if they signed Clowney.

    Add him to that DLine and the garbage they intend to trot out there in that secondary may not be all that awful.

    I would have given the 20M per to him over Cooper.

    Coopers replacement could have been found in this unusually deep WR class, and the perfect year to lose one in FA, but nope, had to keep that inconsistent band together.

    Before ya'll roast me for that...

    Think ahead to that road game against a contending team next year when Cooper is nowhere to be found, we cant get a pass rush because Lawrence is doubled, and the secondary cant cover anyone.

    At least with Clowney opposite Lawrence there would always be a rush, and give that awful secondary a chance. Coopers 20M doesnt make the secondary better, Clowney would have.

    Although I disagree w/ paying Clowney 20 mil, I do agree that I'd have paid him that before Coop.

    Overrated? Only by himself. As witnessed by the lack of offers, it's well known that he's a very good player, but not great. And I've never heard of him being a distraction.
