Former Ravens LB Jadeveon Clowney shares his reason for signing with Panthers

The Baltimore Ravens have a glaring need for a pass rusher, and this need became even more significant after Jadeveon Clowney signed with the Carolina Panthers on Wednesday. Baltimore has only young, unproven talent in its pass-rushing room, which must be addressed.

Many wondered why Clowney would leave a great situation with the Ravens to go to an uncertain one in Carolina. According to Josina Anderson of CBS Sports, Clowney liked his time in Baltimore and spoke with them but wanted to be closer to home.

Odafe Oweh, David Ojabo, Tavius Robinson, and Malik Hamm are next up for the Ravens in their edge room. While it’s not an inspiring group of names, the team could still add Kyle Van Noy back to the equation or draft a rookie who could contribute immediately.
