Green times his pass rush moves well and has bull in a china shop energy as he will just run through contact to find the ball. He's not the fastest or most fluid athlete and will have cold spells throughout the game.

Jadeveon Clowney: Cleveland Browns, 6'5, 255lbs, 29 years old
2021 Stats: 14 games played, 14 starts, 40 tackles, 16 TFLs, 9.0 sacks, 25 QB hits, 53 pressures, pressure percentage (14.2%) average depth of tackle (0.9).
Summary: Fresh off his best season in x years, Clowney proved that when healthy, he's still a disruptive force who racks up pressures and creates negative plays vs the run. Could a Houston reunion finally be in store? Clowney's rumored bad blood with former head coach Bill O'Brien is now two regimes ago and he's everything Lovie Smith looks for in a defensive end.
Clowney's at his best as a very good number two pass rusher, playing opposite of Myles Garrett led to less double teams in 2021. However, it's very possible that Houston drafts that alpha pass rusher at third overall, with Kayvon Thibodeaux or Aidan Hutchinson potentially being on the board. With Greenard also in the mix, could Houston put together a fearsome three-man rotation on the edge? I can only dream.

Ryan Kerrigan: Philadelphia Eagles, 6'4, 267lbs, 33 years old
2021 Stats: 16 games played, 2 starts, 3 tackles, 1 TFLs, 0 sacks, 10 QB hits, 16 pressures, pressure percentage (9%) average depth of tackle (-1.3).
Summary: Kerrigan was a respected veteran I was interested in signing last year and even though he didn't play much in Philly this year, I think his leadership and culture traits would go a long way. He might have a little bit left in the tank as a rotational role and certainly would help Greenard learn how to succeed best as an EDGE whose strengths are more technical than athletic.
