Colin Cowherd: “Jadeveon Clowney is close to signing with Cleveland. Jadeveon Clowney is one of those guys who has never quite lived up to the hype, but now he’s undervalued. He can play and he’s a good player. He’s not worth big money and he’s not as good as his hype, but the idea that Jadeveon Clowney isn’t good is ridiculous. The last time he was playing for Seattle there was a playoff game, he made plays all over the field. He got so hyped out of college that we expect him to be Mike Tyson and knock everybody out, but that’s just not what he is. He’s inconsistent but he’s a really good football player. My takeaway is that if Clowney signs with Cleveland, they are now the third most talented team in the NFL. Tampa one, best roster, Kansas City two, and Cleveland three. Tampa just won the Super Bowl, and Kansas City won it two years ago – NO MORE EXCUSES FOR BAKER MAYFIELD. Competent head coach, competent GM, best offensive line, great weapons, and they have done a great job to solve the backend of their defense this offseason with John Johnson III, a tremendous safety. If Clowney signs with Cleveland there are four overwhelming favorites in the AFC – Kansas City, Buffalo, Indianapolis, and Cleveland. It is go-time for Baker Mayfield, this is a STACKED roster if they get Clowney. You have Clowney, Myles Garrett, Olivier Vernon, just as pass rushers?? Would Cleveland be the favorites in the AFC North? OF COURSE THEY WOULD. Cleveland IS and SHOULD BE favored to win the AFC North if they land Clowney.” (Full Video Above)
Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks the Cleveland Browns would become the favorites to win the AFC North over Baltimore if the team goes through with signing coveted veteran pass rusher Jadaveon Clowney.
Check out the video above as Colin details why he thinks this ‘stacked’ Browns roster would have the third most talented team in the NFL, only behind Tampa Bay and Kansas City, and why there are no more excuses for Baker Mayfield not to make a deep playoff run.
