The Jacksonville Jaguars didn't need Jadeveon Clowney anyway

The Jacksonville Jaguars are a really good team and it is becoming clear that people are starting to recognize it.

That is going to eventually work out on the free-agent market as well but for now, they are getting the respect around the league that they deserve.

A guy like Jadeveon Clowney would not have made a visit with them if he didn't believe in what they were doing as an organization.

He isn't like a superstar with an opinion that everyone must respect but he is a good veteran player that is only going to think about teams that have a chance to win the Super Bowl.

Jadeveon Clowney isn't going to the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2023.

For that reason alone, it is good news to hear that he paid them a visit. However, he did ultimately choose to go to a team that he interviewed with before the Jaguars.

Clowney is going to be a member of the Baltimore Ravens. He signed a one-year deal to go there and he now makes an already good defense even better.

We will see if the Baltimore Ravens have enough on both sides of the ball to be a playoff team. Obviously, a lot will depend on their star quarterback, Lamar Jackson.

The Jaguars didn't really need Clowney. Yes, it would have been nice to have him but it isn't the end of their season because they didn't get him.

They have plenty of players on defesne that they believe can help them create pressure this season. The hope is that they are able to just be all around better on that side of the ball in 2023.

If they are, they will be a legit threat to win the NFC. Obviously, that is all you can ask for going into a season.

Clowney is a good player and deserves respect. However, this is a good team that might have what they need. After the way 2022 went for them, anything is possible now.

Maybe, he will reconsider things after this year but it wasn't meant to be for now.
