The Seattle Seahawks traded for Jadeveon Clowney. They really did. To me, this either feels like really old news, really new news, or like it never happened. For a team ranked 29th in sacks and pressure rate, did it really happen?
To be fair, Clowney has never been an elite pass rusher. This is not something that everybody is ready to admit, but the proof is all there in his history. In nine seasons between college and the NFL, he has exactly one season with double-digit sacks: as a sophomore at South Carolina, Clowney had 13 sacks and 23.
