With not many good options still available on the NFL market right now, the Baltimore Ravens may have gotten one of the best players out there.
According to NFL insider Jordan Schultz, John Harbaugh’s team has agreed to terms on a deal with former No. 1 pick Jadeveon Clowney.

Clowney had a visit with the Ravens recently after trying to get a deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The former Houston Texans star spent the past couple of seasons with the Cleveland Browns, but he wasn’t even active in the season finale after sharing some harsh words about the organization.
That’s why they moved on shortly after the season.
During his days in Ohio, he logged 11 sacks, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and 65 tackles, and it’s safe to say he knows the division quite well.
Also, playing for the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks, he’s failed to live up to the expectations that come with being the first player off the board, but he could still be a solid pickup at this point in the offseason.
The USC product will now join an edge group consisting of David Ojabo, Odafe Oweh, and Tyus Bowser, who’s been sidelined with a non-football injury since the start of training camp.
The Ravens don’t want to leave anything to chance in what could be a make-or-break season for them, and their defense already got a massive blow with the loss of star CB Marlon Humphrey, at least for the first two games of the season.NEXT: Ravens OC Comments On Why Lamar Jackson's Input On The Offense Is Important
