Titans admit ‘nothing imminent’ with Jadeveon Clowney

Jadeveon Clowney, Titans

The Tennessee Titans may be interested in free agent defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, most recently of the Seattle Seahawks.

Titans general manager Jon Robinson, however, nipped any rumors of the 27-year-old and the AFC South franchise joining forces in the bud.

Per Paul Kuharsky:

“Like I’ve said numerous times now there are several guys who are still free agents who are out there, that we’ve had discussions with,” Robinson said on the radio, via ProFootballTalk. “I would again echo what I’ve said: There is nothing imminent. We’ve had those talks. I don’t think — that’s not coming in at any point this afternoon.

“But we’ll continue to take stock of where the roster is at and work through things and if something manifests itself, and we can figure it out with somebody that is a free agent now, and we think it helps our football team then we’ll certainly entertain it.”

Clowney was traded in Sept. 2019 by the Houston Texans—his original franchise, selecting him first overall in the 2014 NFL Draft out of South Carolina—spending a single season with head coach Pete Carroll and the Seahawks. Clowney appeared in only 11 games, registering three sacks and 31 combined tackles.

Clowney joins several elite free agents on the market that, following Monday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline, would not require their next teams to owe a compensatory draft pick to their former franchises. Clowney joins other players in the top 35 percent of annual value like former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston, another first overall pick of years past, and Titans defensive back Logan Ryan.
