There was buzz from the Senior Bowl the Giants were cutting Olivier Vernon. JackRabbit is 31 years old - tough age for a CB. And Gettleman is quick with the axe & proactively cutting Reese holdovers.
Would anyone be opposed to the Giants replacing OV with Clowney? Turns 26 this month. He seems perfect for the Chandler Jones role. Move him around, scheme him to attack 1on1. He's a beast whenever I've watched the Texans play, which I admit is not often. 2 years ago - he was a wrecking ball heading into the Playoffs at a level you rarely see. Ruining games. His stats aren't otherwordly but he also plays on a stacked D with Watt & Mercilus among others. I really don't see a lazy guy on the field - I see an athlete that hustles and intimidates people.
It would be an aggressive move but the Giants are desperate for a pass rush, especially without Vernon.
Plus, if you sign Clowney it really opens up that #6 pick. Could go Greedy Williams to replace Jenkins, QB, Jonah Williams or keep stacking the pass rush with Ed Oliver or Ferrell.
