Titans GM holding out hope to sign Jadeveon Clowney
Jadeveon Clowney remains a free agent, and the Tennessee Titans have been linked as a team that could sign him this offseason. Jon Robinson, the GM of the Titans, is holding out hope that Tennessee can negotiate a deal with Clowney.
“We’ll see,” Robinson said, via the team’s website. “Like I said a couple of weeks ago, we’ve had some discussions there and we’ve had some dialogue back and forth. You never close the door on anything.”
Earlier this month, Robinson exclaimed that the Titans had spoken to Clowney in free agency. With that being said, Robinson didn’t seem confident that Tennessee could get a deal done with Clowney.
However, Robinson likely didn’t envision Clowney remaining a free agent for a couple more weeks. Given that Clowney is still unsigned, the Titans still seem interested in making a bid for the former No. 1 pick.
Just this past season, Clowney recorded only three sacks and four forced fumbles with the Seahawks. The three sacks were the lowest mark of his career since the 2015 season with the Houston Texans.
While Clowney’s numbers were below his standards, he did deal with a lingering core injury throughout the 2019 campaign. Once the season ended, Clowney underwent surgery on his core injury. But with the coronavirus pandemic taking place, teams haven’t been able to conduct a physical on Clowney to see if his health is up to par.
The Pro Bowl edge rusher entered free agency with the idea that he’d become one of the highest-paid defensive players in the NFL. As much as Robinson and the Titans are interested in Clowney, it remains to be seen if the feelings are mutual.
