Report: Jets are ‘highly motivated’ to sign edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney

The New York Jets have retooled their offensive line, and they’re now looking to add a premier pass rusher to an already stout defense.

Jadeveon Clowney just visited the AFC hopefuls, and the Jets are “highly motivated” to finalize a deal, according to Jordan Schultz of Bleacher Report.

A native of Rock Hill, South Carolina, Clowney starred in Columbia with the Gamecocks before becoming a consensus All-American and the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

With the Ravens in 2023, he ranked fifth in pass-rush win rate among edge rushers. He tied his career high of 9.5 sacks and had 50 quarterback hurries, 10 quarterback hits and 69 quarterback pressures.

He had career highs in pressure rate, pass-rush win rate and total pressures in a season.
