Who signs first: Cam Newton or Jadaveon Clowney?

Coronavirus has limited the quality of connection that a team can have with players, making free agency a slow and arduous process. Still on the market are two elite-level players looking for a new home. Quarterback Cam Newton, despite his MVP-caliber talent, is rumored to be willing to take a backup role, making it likely he will sign. However, Jadeveon Clowney is still considered a premier pass-rusher and has options on the table. Who signs first? 🏈

Yes, he has a long injury history. Still, when Cam Newton is healthy, he might be one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in the NFL.

He has been dealing with shoulder and foot problems the last couple of seasons, which have diminished his numbers, but he proved in 2015 what he can do. His MVP season was like nothing ever seen before, notching 35 passing touchdowns, 10 rushing touchdowns and four game-winning drives. Heck, even in 2018 before his injury, he was completing 67.9 percent of his passes and had a 94.2 passer rating.

If he has superstar talent and he's apparently willing to take a backup role. There is no NFL team that logically wouldn't want a player like that.

Despite not living up to the hype of his No. 1 overall draft pick so far, Clowney is still one of the most athletic players at the pass rusher position. In a pass-happy league, every team needs someone like him to stop quarterbacks before they get the ball off.

Not only can he get to the quarterback for a sack, but he can also deflect passes at the line and has enough speed to take a ball back the distance for a score off the fumble of an interception. That kind of athleticism isn't common from most pass rushers.

Cam Newton has more baggage than Clowney at this point in their careers. The former Seattle Seahawk will sign first.
