Jadeveon Clowney Makes Panthers Homecoming in Blockbuster Signing

246

The fierce edge-rusher Jadeveon Clowney, a former top choice of the Houston Texans in the 2014 NFL Draft, has joined the Carolina Panthers. 

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Panthers made a big statement in free agency by landing Clowney with a potentially lucrative two-year, $20 million contract, worth up to $24 million.

With 43 tackles, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and a career-high 9.5 sacks while playing for the Ravens in 2023, Clowney had an outstanding season that culminated with his acquisition. One of the most sought-after players in the free-agent market, he certainly delivered a memorable performance.

The chance to go back home to South Carolina was too much to pass up, even though Clowney had drawn interest from a number of teams, including the New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens. 

Originating in Rock Hill, South Carolina, Clowney joins the Panthers to become the second player, after former teammate Stephon Gilmore, to wear the Panthers uniform from South Pointe High School.

Even though the Panthers had the worst record in the league (2-15) the previous season, Clowney believes there is still a chance to have an early impact. His expertise and leadership will be tremendous benefits for a young Panthers team trying to make a splash.

Defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero has a strategy that Clowney must master in order to succeed, and Clowney is eager to do his part. Building on his successful 2023 season, Clowney hopes to lead the Panthers to a better future with his demonstrated ability to stymie attacks and put pressure on quarterbacks.

Clowney brings a plethora of talent, tenacity, and a voracious appetite for success to the Panthers as he begins his journey.

As he sets his eyes on making a big difference on and off the field, Clowney will undoubtedly make an impression as a key player in the Panthers’ impending season-long pursuit of football greatness.
