Jadeveon Clowney: I wanted to wait until I was mature enough to return home

Jadeveon Clowney agreed to a contract with the Panthers this week, however the prospect of taking part in for the NFC South workforce has been on the sting rusher’s thoughts for a while.

Clowney grew up close to Charlotte in Rock Hill, South Carolina and grew up watching gamers like Julius Peppers star for his new workforce. Clowney, who formally signed his two-year deal on Friday, mentioned “it’s going to be crazy” being again within the space and mentioned that he wanted to make certain he was prepared to deal with that earlier than fulfilling his longtime aim of taking part in for his hometown workforce.

“I used to just watch them on TV all the time and say I can’t wait till I get my opportunity to do that one day,” Clowney mentioned, through the workforce’s web site. “Years ago, when I hit free agency, I told my agent not to reach out to Carolina because I wanted to mature more. And to get to this point where I know if I have to go back there, I can handle myself, and it won’t be a problem for me to do my job because I was still learning how to be a pro. So now I’m 31. I said I’m at the age now where I’m cool going back home; I can handle myself.”

Clowney received to watch some successful Panthers groups when he was rising up within the space. It’s been some time since there’s been a kind of for the subsequent era of followers to have a good time and the hope is that Clowney may also help Carolina put one on the sector quickly.
