Update on Philadelphia Eagles’ interest in Jadeveon Clowney

Eagles, Jadeveon Clowney

The Philadelphia Eagles have been one of the rumored landing spots for free-agent defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney, but it appears that that has been more conjecture than anything else.

According to NFL insider Adam Caplan, the Eagles currently have “no interest” in Clowney.

Of course, the word “currently” means that things could potentially change, but it doesn’t seem like Philadelphia will be rushing to sign Clowney any time soon.

There is obviously a fairly significant disconnect between what Clowney feels he deserves and what the NFL thinks he is worth.

Clowney entered free agency as one of the most high-profile pass rushers on the market, but it’s now mid-May, and he remains unsigned.

The 27-year-old spent the 2019-20 campaign with the Seattle Seahawks and played in 13 games, registering 31 tackles, three sacks, an interception four forced fumbles, a pair of fumble recoveries and a pair of defensive touchdowns.

While Clowney dealt with a sports hernia injury for much of the second half of the season, his inability to get to the quarterback was still disappointing. Clowney underwent surgery to repair the issue earlier this offseason.

The Rock Hill, South Carolina native, who played his collegiate football at the University of South Carolina, was originally selected by the Houston Texans with the first overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft.

He made three straight Pro Bowls with the Texans between 2016 and 2018, but he has yet to log a double-digit sack campaign in his career, topping out at 9.5 in 2017.

Clowney was traded to the Seahawks last September.
