Jadeveon Clowney does happy dance after sack, $750k incentive bonus

The Baltimore Ravens may have the NFL’s best defense, and veteran edge-rusher Jadeveon Clowney has been a big part of that. The 2014 first overall pick out of South Carolina is on his fifth team in the last six years, and he signed a one year, $2.505-million contract with the Ravens on August 18. It’s basically a vet-minimum deal, but Clowney did have one important incentive that he met against the PIttsburgh Steelers on Saturday.

With 43 seconds left in the first half, Clowney sacked Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph, which gave him 9.5 sacks on the season. And that tripped a $750,000 bonus, which is a nice add-on.

That’s about how any of us would dance if we got a $750,000 bonus. Per Pro Football Focus, which counts half-sacks as sacks (which everybody should), Clowney came into this game with nine sacks and 69 total pressures, which is nice.
