Panthers sign veteran Jadeveon Clowney to two-year deal

The Carolina Panthers bolstered their defensive front by adding pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney.

The contract is reportedly a two-year, $20 million deal that could be worth up to $24 million if incentives are met. The deal includes bonuses for hitting eight, 10, and 12 sacks in each campaign.

The 31-year-old visited the New York Jets last week before joining Carolina.

Clowney remains a strong pass-rushing factor, coming off tying his career-high 9.5 sacks in his lone season with the Baltimore Ravens. He has notched at least nine sacks three times in his career.

“That was very important, really for myself because I already knew I could play the game and make plays,” Clowney said during a Zoom call on Friday via ESPN. “I tell people all the time if I play in 16, 17 games, it’s going to look like a Pro Bowl season. That’s all I got to do, is just be out there playing.

“I know I can make the plays no matter what team I’m on. I’ve just got to be available and take care of myself. The older I get the more I figure out how to stay healthier.”

Clowney also has 2.5 sacks and 24 tackles in seven playoff appearances. The Panthers are hoping that his addition will much-needed stability after trading two-time Pro Bowler Brian Burns to the New York Giants.

The Panthers coming off finishing last with 27 sacks last season.
