According to that Pro Football411 Twitter... Clowney and Seattle are closing in on a deal.

Is that a worthwhile twitter handle? Haven’t followed or heard anything from them before.

It would be cool, but Ballard seldom get those where a bidding war is going on. I would be highly surprised if he ends here with two other suitors.

There was more than one team that was trying to work out a deal with Justin Houston last year.  I remember we were almost sure he was going to the Steelers but he wound up signing here.  I do realize there is a difference in their ages though.  We'll see if Ballard can scoop him up.

We can only hope.  The silence is deafening now.

Or good, because if he was closing in on a deal with Seattle and we haven't heard its done. All while we free up $10m in additional space(Hoyer, Desir) in same time period.

 

Just cant fathom that dline:

Houston, Buckner, Clowney

Turay, Autry, Banogu, Muhammad, Lewis, Stewart

 

Damn, teams would not want to play us.

 

If we could bring in Harris/ or Suh for 1 yr deal. WoW.

 

Or draft a guy in 2nd-4th..

That reported offer has been out there for a long time now.  Seems close enough to the 20M he was looking for.  Maybe that offer is incorrect.  We will see.

They said they offered him 18.5 mil and Clowney is looking for 20.

So let me get this straight. He cries about getting tagged at 19.5 million a year, demands that he won't be tagged for 2020, so now his offer is a 1 year 13 million? Bet he wished he was tagged again this year, much like Gordon and Bell before him..

This could be the day we find out on the Clowney front.  I just read where The Seahawks have only 20M in cap space left.  That makes that reported 18.5M offer somewhat unbelievable.  If he signs with the Titans he goes against our OL twice.  If he signs with the Colts he goes against an average OL in the Titans who just lost a key lineman in Conklin.  With our addition of Bruckner you would think he would have a chance of greater and higher production with the Colts.  Money wise I think the Colts will be competitive.  We might even have the highest offer on the table.  I can't wait to find out where he is going.  Hopefully today and to the Colts.

I want to see the Colts with an intimidating and dominating defense for the first time in my lifetime and I've been a Colts fan since 1980.  I don't think I would know how to act.  lol

There you have it.  I thought we might have the highest offer.  I'm biased if course but if I were him I would take the Colts offer and join that DL.  I actually think we are the better team overall as well.

Hopefully the Colts feeling like Clowney is "leaning toward Titans" is more posturing on Clowney's part than anything.

I think he may not be crazy about Indianapolis tbh.  It's not like the colts are clearly better than titans or Seahawks either

I wonder what plan B is.  Trade for Yannick?  Sheard again?

He might not want to share the spotlight with Houston and Buckner.

Maybe Griffin?  But I heard he might be something of a head case.

Seahawks and titans don't exactly have pass rushers to take attention away from Clowney especially since the Titans traded Casey. Clowney was getting double teamed a lot in Seattle. Atleast we can offer him single blocks because you're not single blocking Buckner or Houston

That's why the Colts make more sense.  He will get fewer double teams if any.

Go with the Colts offer bro. You got less chance of playoffs if you stay with Seattle. Titans have improved but do you really trust Tannehill to do it again? Get with Indy and that gives you two elite lines and much more. Plus you get to play indoors most of the year on the turf. Great for pass rushers. Did i mention being coached by Robert Mathis?

I am a daily lurker and rarely post, but this is an underrated post, Krunk! Indy gives him an opportunity to shine where he does best as a consistent player and run stopper, while simultaneously allowing him an opportunity to rush the passer he wont have elsewhere with Houston and Buckner...

 

He fits the colts perfectly. With our push to reach the upper echelon of the NFL now, this is a mutually beneficial arrangement. Let’s make it happen!

Yes signing Clowney sounds appealing but what ramifications would it have on our cap space and the ability to add depth?

If it's a short-team deal, I don't know if it would hurt us beyond 2021. I'm sure we would still have some money to fill out our roster with the draft.

Don't you think Ballard has figured that all out?  That is his job.  I think he has a plan.

    • Hmm, my only question is if they test everyone for COVID before entering the building (and I presume they use hand sanitizer also?), then isn't all the other precautionary measures redundant?
    • I wouldn't go that far.....  
    • And I do respect and support it, doesn't mean I have to understand it because we have to face the fact that we can't isolate ourselves for months or years and that we can't avoid the risk of getting infected. Regardless of whether you are going to the supermarket or meeting with your family there are things you have to do and there is no 100% safety out there. You said it yourself: So many opportunities to get infected. Not only on the field or the football bubble but in real life that we simply can't avoid.    And If Joe Nobody can go to the office every day I think a football player can go on the field. And as I mentioned a football field is a much safer environment than an office with tests on a regular basis it's probably one of the safest places especially if they play the games without spectators. They say that it takes at least 15 minutes of realy close contact to an infected person to infect yourself in a closed room. And there are a lot of measures to minimize the risk like a max number of people in the training room etc. And yes Corona is a serious virus I don't doubt that but it's not the killer virus that is threatening to exterminate humanity. What we are facing now and that is noboby talking about is that we are dying a slow and steady economic and social death! But thats just my two cents.
    • First, I’m not sure it’s known just how much time you have to be near an infected to actually become infected yourself.      Second,  think of football this way...  every huddle, and there roughly 65-70 of them each side, each game is an opportunity.  Each play and tackle is an opportunity.   Every time a player goes in the team complex is an opportunity.   Every time you’re in the locker room, the weight room, the team meeting room, the positional meeting room, you name it, they are all opportunities.    There are so many different opportunities to get infected.     Plus, you talk about young people...   those people have their entire career in front of them.  The longer this drags out the more we learn that we don’t know as much as we thought we did.  That even when you’re Covid free many still report issues with their heart and lungs.  That’s not good for anyone,  especially athletes.  Young athletes are trying to protect their careers.    These decisions are complex, but you have to respect and support every decision,  no matter which way it goes. 
    • I respect there decision but don't understand it. Why? Athletes get tested on a regular basis, they can wear helmets with a faceshield, we know that u need to spend considerable time very close to a infected person to get infected yourself and they play outside where the risk isn't that big anyway. So athletes are probably the most safe persons in this pandemic. If others can do their daily work athletes can do it too.
