In a move that could potentially bolster their defensive lineup, the Jacksonville Jaguars have welcomed pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney for a visit, according to NFL Insider Jordan Schultz.

The former 2014 NFL first overall pick, by the Houston Texans, has been on the lookout for a new team following his recent visit to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens extended a contract offer during his free-agent visit but failed to secure his commitment.

Clowney’s journey has been marked by both moments of brilliance and periods of inconsistency.

Last season, Clowney’s performance was somewhat lackluster, achieving just two sacks in twelve games while playing for the Cleveland Browns.

Throughout his 109-game professional career, Clowney has recorded a total of 43 sacks—a figure that some critics argue falls short of the expectations set for a former first overall pick.

Despite this, his proficiency in run defense and continued athletic prowess, even at the age of 30, make him an intriguing prospect for teams seeking to enhance their defensive capabilities.

Clowney may go from playing next to former 1st overall pick Pass-Rusher in Browns Myles Garrett to another former 1st overall pick Pass-Rusher in Jaguars Travon Walker.
