Seahawks’ Jadeveon Clowney’s recruiting effort may point to return

Seahawks, Jadeveon Clowney

Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is one of the top free agents still on the board after 10 days of NFL free agency. However, there has been some chatter that Clowney would like to return to the Seattle Seahawks. Clowney reportedly recruited his former college teammate Brandon Shell to sign with the Seahawks.

Hers what ESPN’s Brady Henderson reported on Twitter:

At the start of free agency, Clowney was seeking to command a deal worth $20 million per year. However, the Seahawks reportedly offered Clowney a contract that would pay him somewhere in the $13-15 million range.

Nevertheless, the Seahawks may be concerned about Clowney’s overall health. The 27-year-old had surgery when the season finished to repair a sports hernia he suffered from. That same injury caused him to miss three games last season.
However, he’s expected to be fully healthy before the 2020 NFL season begins. Numerous teams have shown interest in Clowney, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, they cannot fly him in for a physical. Therefore, many teams are concerned about is health.
This past season, Clowney posted three sacks and 16 quarterback hits in 13 games. Despite recording a career-low three sacks, Clowney was very effective on the defensive side of the field.
