Seahawks’ Jadeveon Clowney won’t sign with ‘some sorry team’ in NFL free agency

Jadeveon Clowney, Seahawks

The 2019 NFL season has come to a disappointing end for the Seattle Seahawks after losing to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Round. It appears defensive end Jadeveon Clowney already has an idea of where he will not end up this offseason.

Clowney is set to test the market as a free agent. He has made it clear that he plans on signing with an NFL contender, via NFL Update:

Jadeveon Clowney, who is scheduled to be a free agent this offseason, says his primary goal is to be with a contender. “I want to win…. I’m not going to some sorry team.”

There will certainly be no shortage of interest for a player of Clowney’s caliber this NFL offseason. However, his comments indicate that he was already ruling out a good portion of potential landing spots for him.

Clowney is not coming off his most productive year after Seattle netted him via trade before the 2019 NFL campaign. He finished the regular season with 31 tackles, three sacks, four forced fumbles, and an interception. The former No. 1 overall pick had no problem making his presence felt in the postseason with 12 tackles and 1.5 sacks in two games.

It remains to be seen what Clowney’s criteria will be for deciding on a good team in the NFL offseason. Regardless, it is safe to assume that any of the teams in this year’s playoffs would serve as legitimate suitors. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that his lucrative contract will be in the books for them.
