OLB - D’Andre Walker, our 5th round pick last year. 

 

It would be awesome if he were to provide any good play this year, but we can't assume or depend on him.

Big money to a guy who is rarely healthy and who many have questioned his desire to play the game.  He was traded away by the Texans for very little.  The Seahawks aren’t going to sign him.  One man’s trash isn’t always another man’s treasure..,. Some times it is just trash.

Usually these monster deal guys disappoint.  They simply don't bring the overall value.

Correa is a JAG for the most part but gave us 5 sacks and played decently in the playoffs.  Could we use a total stud pass rusher?  Sure.

Clowney has issues staying healthy and is arguably not the super stud consistently.   You could sign Quinn for close to half.

We could draft someone late in the first who could be another TJ Watt.  I'd pass.  JRob should keep looking for value in the draft and if anything sign a mid tier guy like SK stated.

 

Clowney was actually the 20th rated Edge player per PFF and a player like Quinn or Fowler is not much less of a player.

People also over look the value of other guys like Conklin.  Edge is a need but I'm not sure Clowney is the answer at his price and value. 

 

Good points. Fact is you have to overpay for edge rushers in FA if you dont have homegrown talent. Ignoring edge rush in the draft the past few years all but necessitates overspending on the position in FA.

He’s depth only until he proves otherwise.

I think our top FA signing should be Ryan Tannehill. But, if you are talking about players who were not Titans this year, then yeah, Clowney would be a good choice. As others have noted, he'd make everyone around him better, and he'd make some plays too. Having Clowney, Casey, Simmons, and Landry on the field at the same time would be a lot of fun to watch, too!

We made it to thr AFC championship game with no real edge rusher. We had the chiefs. We didn’t lose because of no pressure Mahomes was pressured he was just to good. Clownney would have just ran right by him. Find a stud corner

No, Clowney would have contain rushed and set the edge. Our guys ran right by him and therein lies the problem.

The team had very little to no pressure on Mahomes. Thank goodness the team didnt play a good passing offense in the 1st two rounds either or the pass rush would have been exposed earlier. As for acquiring a stud corner do you understand how hard they are to acquire? They are more rare than franchise QBs. The team had a chance to get one a few years in Lattimore @japan but took Cory Davis instead. Butler and Jackson are not the problem...

They also passed on Ramsey in 2016 opting for Conklin + Rams picks.

Clowney should be a 3rd down package rusher. His stats are good but not great despite being surrounded by talent his entire career.

 

He's asking alotta $ for Orakpo production. 

You would put the one of league's best edge run-defenders on the bench for first and second down?
