Raiders have made an offer to Jadeveon Clowney
Could Jadeveon Clowney be headed to the Las Vegas Raiders?
According to Cecil Lammey, team sources say it is possible. Per Lammey’s sources, the Raiders have made an offer to the seventh-year defensive end.
Team sources tell me #Raiders have extended an offer to Jadeveon Clowney. 2 or 3 other teams have better offers. Jon Gruden REALLY wants him but Davis/Mayock are standing pat (for now) Gruden would like to up the offer. Interesting for #Broncos if JC winds up in AFCW @1043TheFan

There is no indication on the details of the offer, but according to the sources there are two or three teams that have given Clowney better offers. Raiders head coach Jon Gruden reportedly really wants Clowney in Vegas, but owner Mark Davis and general manager Mike Mayock are not moving on their number. This is not a good sign on Vegas’ chances unless other teams in the hunt drop out.
Clowney has received offers from the Seattle Seahawks and the Cleveland Browns, with the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints also reportedly interested in him. He is still holding out hope for a max deal and is looking for $17 or $18 million a year. Clowney has indicated he plans to sign before the beginning of the 2020 season, assuming the season starts on time.
There is speculation that with the uncertainty of the profitability of the 2020 season, Clowney may take a one-year deal and test free agency again next year. Only time will tell if he is able to get the deal he wants or if he will have to settle this year in order to play this season. Raider fans will have to wait and see if Davis and and Mayock will budge on their offer or if another interested team ultimately wins out for his services.
