Titans GM sparks Jadeveon Clowney rumors yet again
Jadeveon Clowney is one of the most sought-after free agents still available after the six-year veteran signed a one-year pact with the Seattle Seahawks in the 2019 NFL offseason. Now, the Tennessee Titans and their GM, Jon Robinson, are still “monitoring the situation” in regards to Clowney.

As you can see, the second part of that tweet is likely the most interesting, especially the section describing the two parties “may or may not” having contact recently.
The Titans, like pretty much every team in the NFL, would be happy to add Clowney to their roster. Tennessee already had a strong defense, one that ranked 12th overall in the NFL in the 2019 season. But Clowney’s presence would hopefully vault the upstart Titans into another stratosphere defensively.
The upstart Titans were one of the darlings of the AFC Playoffs last season as they made it all the way to the AFC Championship game before finally falling to eventual Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs.
Clowney’s proven production across multiple positions would help shore up a defense that gave fits to two of the best quarterbacks in the game last year in the playoffs in Tom Brady and eventual MVP Lamar Jackson.
A three-time Pro-Bowler, Clowney shifted to playing left defensive end last season with the Seahawks after being an outside lineback and right defensive end in years prior with the Houston Texans, with whom he started his career.
