Ravens 'a wild card' for Jadeveon Clowney, Harbaugh mum originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
With the Ravens reportedly interested in outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, coach John Harbaugh declined to comment, as expected, when speaking with reporters on Saturday afternoon.
The Saints and Titans are considered favorites to bring in the talented pass-rusher, but the Ravens can’t be discounted, reports have said. ESPN reported the Ravens almost got a deal done with Clowney a few weeks back
A source close to Jadeveon Clowney says he’s been mulling offers from Titans and Saints since Friday and Ravens a wild card - they made a serious push a few weeks ago. Seahawks not out of it but more monitoring.— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) September 5, 2020
“I’m not going to comment on any impending, possible moves or anything like that,” Harbaugh said. “I think anybody would have an interest in a player of that caliber, certainly. Anybody across the league would. He’s a great player, from all accounts a good, hard-working guy. It just depends on people’s situations, roster situations, and cap situations to determine all those kind of things. So I wouldn’t comment on our specific interest, really on any player in that sense.”
The Ravens have a need at pass-rusher opposite Matthew Judon, and Clowney would certainly fill that role better than anyone on the market right now.
Last year in Seattle, his only season as a Seahawk, he tallied just three sacks in 13 games. He played hurt during the season though, which has a few teams still interested in the three-time Pro Bowl talent.
Baltimore had 37 sacks last season, which ranked 21st in the NFL. Judon had a career-high 9.5 sacks to lead the team.
