2. Sign Jadeveon Clowney

Clowney could capitalize this offseason, as the market for pass rushers is starting to explode. While the former No. 1 pick has typically waited until the wee hours before the season to pick a team over the last few years, the mutual interest between him and the Ravens might help get a deal done.

Even after he made three Pro Bowls and an All-Pro team with the Houston Texans, Clowney's 9.5 sacks were the most he ever had in a season. The pressure rate is still quality, and Clowney's rare athletic ability remains in tact as he crosses the 30-year-old Meridian line. A return makes too much sense.

The Baltimore Ravens need to keep Jadeveon Clowney

While Kyle Van Noy was also excellent last season, it seems unlikely that Baltimore could keep both of them and fix up their offensive line in a meaningful way. Given his ability to still stuff the run and his revitalized pass rush skill, Clowney is clearly the better signing of the two players.

Possible contenders like the Texans and Dolphins invested a ton of money into their defensive lines, which may have inadvertently narrowed the possible landing spots for Clowney on the open market. If both parties want this to get done, they need to lock things down as soon as possible.
