Jadeveon Clowney makes major declaration as he explores free agency
Still in search for a team to play for, NFL free agent Jadeveon Clowney is letting the league know that whichever team signs him will be really lucky.
Speaking to Mark Berman of FOX 26 in Houston, the 27-year-old Pro-Bowl defensive end mentioned that his work and rehabilitation is progressing well. In fact, he claimed that any interested NFL team will get their money’s worth by signing him.
“I just want to let people know I’m ready,” Clowney said. “I’ll be ready to go whenever the time comes. Whoever I sign with will get the best version of me. I’m working. I’m staying ahead of schedule and working and I’m going to be ready to go when training camp starts.”
Clowney, who recently played for the Seattle Seahawks, is also not ruling out the possibility of a return to the Pacific Northwest and finish what he started. And it seems that the interest is mutual.
“I love Seattle,” Clowney said. “I love everybody on the coaching staff.”
Originally the first overall pick by the Houston Texans in the 2014 NFL Draft, Clowney was traded to the Seahawks in August of 2019. The former South Carolina Gamecock managed to start 11 of the 13 games he played in while dealing with a lingering core injury. Despite playing hurt, Clowney was named to the Pro-Bowl as an alternate.
Jadeveon Clowney announced that he has recovered from the injury and has taken the time to put in the work at Plex in Houston in hopes to convince NFL teams that he is healthy and ready. If Clowney will indeed be the best version of himself as he claims, then any squad that will sign him will have a major defensive piece and game-changer on their hands in the upcoming 2020 season.
Now, let the Clowney sweepstakes begin!
