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 thepick6.com 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

22 Will Be a Lucky Number for the 49ers in 2020

When thinking about how NFL offenses have evolved over the years, many have moved away from core philosophies like establishing the run game, to a more open, Air Raid-style spread passing attack, with read options and run-pass-options (RPOs). These advancements have put more speedy pass catchers on the field and allowed athletic playmakers to put defenses in difficult situations. Defenses have evolved as well, in order to counter these offensive changes, by getting smaller and quicker at positions that were traditionally manned by larger, more physical players. This has resulted in linebackers who are built more like large safeties, and defensive tackles who are smaller, and quicker, as opposed to hulking, run-stuffers. It appears that Kyle Shanahan is evolving his offense to

This offseason has been branded "The Revenge Tour" and after several moves, the 49ers are ready to take that first step towards their ultimate goal of a sixth Super Bowl championship. Up first are the Arizona Cardinals, who made plenty of moves of their own by drafting linebacker Isaiah Simmons and trading for wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Kyler Murray enters into his second season and figures to lead the Cardinals to another improved season in the difficult NFC West. In both meetings last season, the Cardinals gave the Niners all they could handle, but Jimmy Garoppolo was able to lead
