I agree. Which would be incredibly stupid imo. Why take a guy that is considered by many to be a once in a decade DE prospect with the #1 pick....and then play him at LB?

Price controls in the new labor agreement as you know JDouble - money isn't an issue for this kind of excellence.
But it's not just about Clowney's salary. Watt is only making $1.9 million for 2014 and then is a free agent in 2015. He's going to be getting a huge raise.


All the more reason to draft Clowney.  See how he does next season, and let Watt walk if necessary.

Just like about every other NFL team, if they decide they want to keep both they will find a way financially.

They would be paying Clowney small change on his rookie deal and paying Watt boatloads.. I'm sure they would survive that.

Survive, yes.

But lets just say Clowney turns into Watt v2.  They could trade him for multiple draft picks, and avoid paying him 80mil or whatever.  And then they have Clowney on board for pocket change for 3-4 years.
