Rumor suggests 49ers might be ‘testing the waters’ on Jadeveon Clowney

Jul 31, 2020 at 2:43 PM--

Could the San Francisco 49ers be interested in free-agent pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney? A recent rumor from is suggesting that is the case.

It is important to stress that I have no information on this source's track record when it comes to the 49ers-related rumors, and no one else seems to be reporting this information outside of referencing this specific source.

Take it for what it is worth. Maybe nothing. Maybe something.

With that said, here is the tweet that has been creating a little bit of buzz over the last few hours.

The tweet notes that nothing is imminent. If the report is accurate, it could be the 49ers merely reaching out to see what it might take to add the three-time Pro Bowl selection to an already strong defensive front that includes pass rushers Nick Bosa, Dee Ford, and Arik Armstead.

The Houston Texans traded Clowney to the Seattle Seahawks before the start of last season in exchange for a third-round draft pick and two players. He was not re-signed and became a free agent in March.

Clowney has recorded 236 tackles, 32 sacks, 14 passes defensed, an interception, a touchdown, and nine forced fumbles through his six NFL seasons.

Again, there may be nothing here, but with discussion ramping up a bit surrounding the topic, it became worth presenting while disclosing that there may be nothing to this story.

The San Francisco 49ers won't host fans inside Levi's Stadium when they play the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday — air quality permitting. That could be seen as a negative when it comes to creating energy and a real home-field advantage. It might also be an advantage for aggressive defensive linemen who won't be distracted by the noise of a hostile environment and be able to react to the snap of the football more quickly. Right tackle Mike McGlinchey sees some advantages to quieter NFL stadiums, though, correcting any perceived misconceptions that they might benefit

49ers Final 53-Man Predictions

The San Francisco 49ers are going to cut their roster down to 53 players by Saturday afternoon. Originally back in April, I took a way too early look at what the roster could look like. Now less than 48 hours away from the deadline, I reexamine my picks and predictions. Quarterbacks (3): Jimmy Garoppolo, Nick Mullens, C.J. Beathard In: C.J. Beathard Out: N/A COVID-19 made keeping a third QB absolutely necessary this season. Much to the chagrin of 49ers fans, Beathard survives another year on the roster and could possibly steal an important spot on an exceptionally talented team. Running backs (5): Raheem Mostert, Jerick McKinnon, Tevin Coleman, Jeff Wilson Jr., Kyle
