James Kuntz breaks down Asthyn Davis’ rise from walk-on to the New York Jets by talking with the people who saw his growth first hand…

Rumors of the New York Jets’ interest in free agent OLB Jadeveon Clowney were reignited yesterday when new Jets safety Bradley McDougald posted a screenshot of a facetime with Clowney entitled, “Spoke to my boy @clownejd today, told me to the tell the @nyjets to come get him!! Let’s make it happen 🙏🏾”

As a result, it’s worth examining whether the Jets should sign Clowney. In this article, Dan Essien argues for signing Clowney, while James Kuntz argues the contrary.
