Jadeveon Clowney ‘not in a hurry’ to sign
Last with the Seattle Seahawks and oing into free agency, Jadeveon Clowney was considered one of the top players available. Yet, here we are in May, and the defensive lineman remains unsigned.
It may still that way for a while, too.
Russini adds that both the Seahawks and the Titans have made “multiple offers,” but that nothing either side has proposed has matched Clowney’s price tag.
Obviously, there is a disconnect between what Clowney feels he is worth and what the rest of the NFL does, so it remains to be seen how the pass rusher bridges that gap with any interested parties.
Clowney spent the 2019-20 campaign in Seattle, playing in 13 games and logging 31 tackles, three sacks, an interception, four forced fumbles, a couple of fumble recoveries and a pair of defensive touchdowns.
He also dealt with a sports hernia injury throughout much of the second half of the season and underwent surgery to repair the issue earlier this offseason.
Clowney, 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.
The 27-year-old was very disappointing over his first couple of seasons, playing in just 17 games combined in 2014 and 2015. However, between 2016 and 2018, Clowney made three straight Pro Bowl appearances.
The Texans then traded Clowney to the Seahawks last September after failing to agree upon a long-term deal.
