3 ideal free agency landing spots for Clay Matthews

Clay Matthews was one of the top defensive stars in the entire NFL just a few short years ago with the Green Bay Packers. He was a feared pass rusher and was a hard hitting playmaker. No offensive line wanted to deal with the storm that Matthews brought to the field.

Unfortunately, last offseason, Matthews ended up parting ways with the Packers. He signed with the Los Angeles Rams and actually ended up having a solid 2019 season. This offseason, the Rams made the decision to release Matthews to free up money.

Now, Matthews is still sitting in free agency waiting for an opportunity. He is 33 years old and still capable of playing at a high level. For a team that needs help with their pass rush or even potentially an upgrade at inside linebacker, Matthews could be a target.

During the 2019 season with Los Angeles, Matthews racked up 37 total tackles to go along with eight sacks, two forced fumbles, and three defended passes in 13 games. Those numbers show the ability that Matthews still has to make a major impact.

All of that being said, let’s take a look at three teams who would be ideal landing spots for the longtime star.
