Baltimore Ravens Best Off-Season Addition: Jadeveon Clowney
The Baltimore Ravens have to be loving the move that they made to sign Jadeveon Clowney late into free agency. They only signed him because Tyus Bowser was on the PUP longer than expected, and David Ojabo suffered an injury in training camp. The move has been stellar.
Clowney has 3.5 sacks this year, but his pass rush win rate is as good as it was back in his prime days. More than that, he is on pace for a career-high in quarterback hits, and his run defense has been impactful for one of the best rushing units in the NFL.
The Ravens had injuries to David Ojabo and Odafe Oweh in the season, so they had to rely on guys such as Jeremiah Moon, Tavius Robinson, and Malik Harrison to play on the edge across from Clowney. As the leader of the pack, he held down this unit for about a month. They finally signed Kyle Van Noy, and now, with Oweh back, he is getting better with the help around him. Sunday was one of his best games.
The Ravens added Nelson Agholor, who has been solid, and we already covered the best draft pick. You could argue that Geno Stone was an off-season, but he was with the team last year. The biggest addition to this roster that they did not have last year was obviously Jadeveon Clowney.
