Long shot or not, the Los Angeles Rams should try to get in on the Jadeveon Clowney action.
With all of the uncertainty surrounding Jadeveon Clowney, and his situation with the Houston Texans, should the Los Angeles Rams return to their win-now approach from last offseason to make a run at the former No. 1 pick?
At the moment, the chances of the Rams landing another superstar like Clowney seems like an absolute long shot, mainly because of the Texans knowing the difference he makes on defense on top of the hefty price tag the defender would come with.
Despite Houston using the franchise tag a few months ago, Clowney remains unsigned with the team’s minicamp officially getting underway this week, leading many to believe this is a situation that could continue to drag on for a little longer.
Instead of playing 2019 under the franchise tag, Clowney has made it clear that he would prefer a long-term deal with a lot more money, which is part of the reason trade rumors have been swirling as of late.
If the Texans were to move on from Clowney in a trade, it would most likely be due to the fact that Houston doesn’t want to commit to paying him a hefty long-term deal.
And while the Rams would seem like a team that should be ruled out over a scenario like this since their salary cap situation is a little tight, and they have a few players of their own looking to get paid down the road, this doesn’t mean acquiring Clowney should be ruled out.
Looking back to last offseason when Los Angeles proved to be a team willing to pull off all sorts of crazy moves, why shouldn’t the Rams be considered a possibility?
Any chance of landing Clowney would most likely result in Los Angeles having to give up a player of their own as well to Houston, so to have a little fun, here are three players currently on the Rams who would deserve to be considered in a potential deal.
