The NFL offseason is a time of excitement and anticipation for fans and teams alike. As the league year begins, the Jacksonville Jaguars need to bolster their pass rush.

With six games pivotal games against the sinister six; Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Joe Burrows, Josh Allen, Deshawn Watson, and the San Francisco 49ers. the Jags need to add a disruptive force to attack the slate of elite quarterbacks they will face in key games this year.

The Jags have $11 million left in cap space and a team built to make a deep playoff run, and they need to consider adding one of these three edge rushers to be the final piece to their roster. 

No. 3 Jaguars Pass rush option: The enigmatic Jadeveon Clowney

Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney's journey through the NFL has been anything but conventional. With a reputation for being an enigmatic force on the field, Clowney has struggled to find a consistent role in recent years.

However, his raw talent and ability to disrupt opposing offenses cannot be denied. Jaguars HC Doug Pederson is known for his ability to handle talented yet unpredictable players, could be an ideal destination for Clowney.

With a burgeoning roster in place, the Jaguars have the potential and talent to support Clowney's unique personality. Furthermore, Jacksonville's rotational pass-rushing approach would allow Clowney to make an impact without the burden of being the primary focus of the defense.

Known for his explosive playmaking ability and relentless pursuit of the quarterback, Clowney has established himself as one of the premier pass rushers in the league. While he may come with a hefty price tag, his impact on the field would be well worth it for the Jaguars.

Adding Clowney to their defensive line would improve their pass rush and provide leadership and experience to their young players. Last year Clowney started ten games for the Cleveland Browns, and at 30 years old, he is still a viable threat to rush the passer. He has compiled 43 sacks and 109 quarterback hits in his eight-year career.
