I would do a 1 or 2 year at 15 mil per. With The D line looking better he can be another very good piece coming off the edge. That allows for very limited double teams. Or they start dedicating TE’s and RB’s to stay home which helps as well.

He'd be a big time pickup on a motivated one year deal. He's a great player; just not the sack master he was expected to be. If the Colts could get him at $16m for a one year deal, that's worth it. He might just earn a big time deal and stay a Colt, and with the expanded cap, he could be affordable. You never know. That's a far cry from the 5 year, $120+ million dollar deal he was seeking previously. I'd love to see a fired up Clowney on a one year deal playing for the Colts.
I haven't watched Pittman yet. He's on the list.
I wasn't comparing him to Burton, just identifying the role. And Burton played that hybrid role at Florida, then got used in a variety of ways with the Eagles. Claypool is definitely more athletic.
I disagree that big bodied receivers are always open. I know everyone is drawn to them, but there's skill involved in coming down with the ball, and it starts with the release at the line (not great from Claypool), it includes hand usage and body control, stacking receivers, tracking the ball, and securing it. I don't think Claypool shows those skills.
He can develop, I just don't think he's going to be ready to perform right away. He's a project, IMO. So people so eager to draft a WR out of a need to improve the 2020 roster, I don't see him scratching that itch.
