They have a chance to take another step in 2021 and compete not just to make the playoffs, but for a real shot to go deep in the playoffs.
Much of that will rely how they execute their offseason plans.
One of the most intriguing things is that there seems to be interest from both parties about a pairing of Travis Etienne with the Arizona Cardinals.
Etienne performed extremely well at the Clemson Tigers Pro Day, starting with his weigh-ins.
Official verified pro-day measurables on Clemson RB Travis Etienne:— Jim Nagy (@JimNagy_SB) March 11, 2021
Hand: 9 3/8
Arm: 31 1/8
Wing: 73 1/8
The 215 was a big number, especially with the fact he backed it up with a great 40-yard dash time.
Etienne has also mentioned before how he’d like to play for the Arizona Cardinals, in an interview with Brandon Marshall:
“I’m not even going to lie to you,” he said. “My dream scenario is the Cardinals at 16.”
That is not something we usually hear about the Arizona Cardinals. So, having Etienne be interested in the Cardinals is one thing, but seems like the Cardinals are interested as well:

Will be interesting to see how this plays out.
