The Seahawks all but out on free agent DE Jadeveon Clowney after acquiring star safety Jamal Adams from the Jets.
The Seahawks will have to pay Adams a long-term extension, taking them out of the Clowney sweepstakes. Tennessee is one of the teams reportedly interested in Clowney, but no official offer has been made. The 27-year-old is completely recovered from core muscle surgery this off-season and is looking to secure a long-term deal. Clowney racked up 31 tackles, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and one interception across 13 games for the Seahawks in 2019.
According to Titans GM Jon Robinson, Tennessee is still “monitoring the situation” with free agent DE Jadeveon Clowney and “may or may not have” been in discussions with his representation within “the last week.”
The Titans have been linked to Clowney from the get-go, so this news comes as no surprise as we get closer to the start of training camp. The Browns were said to be a big player in the Clowney sweepstakes, but they just gave a huge contract to their own All-Pro pass rusher Myles Garrett. Other teams rumored to be interested in Clowney to this point are the Seahawks and Eagles.
Former Texans and Seahawks star pass-rusher Jaedeveon Clowney has received interest from several teams over the last couple months but sources tell Pro Football Talk that the Browns appear to no longer be one of those teams.
Clowney has received interest from the Browns, Raiders, Titans, Jets, and Seahawks. But with Cleveland agreeing to a renegotiated contract with Olivier Vernon, a league source told PFT that the team is unlikely to continue its pursuit of Clowney. The Seahawks remain the favorite to sign the former No.1 pick.
The Seattle Times is reporting that free agent DE Jadeveon Clowney’s odds of re-signing with the Seahawks are “likely increasing.”
Clowney is reportedly seeking a deal worth $15-$16 million per season. Oliver Vernon just restructured his contract, taking the Browns out of the Clowney sweepstakes. “Seattle isn’t going to offer Clowney $15-16 million a year or so as it originally did,” per the Seattle Times. But the Seahawks can still offer a one-year deal that would allow Clowney to return to a place he feels comfortable and maybe set himself up for another run at free agency in 2021.” The Raiders were reportedly also interested in signing in Clowney, but no official offer was made. The 27-year-old is completely recovered from core muscle surgery this off-season and is looking to secure a new deal. Clowney racked up 31 tackles, three sacks, four forced fumbles and one interception across 13 games for the Seahawks in 2019. Stay tuned.
According to sources, the Las Vegas Raiders have reportedly extended an offer to free agent DE Jadeveon Clowney.
The same sources say that two or three other teams have better offers on the table, but that Jon Gruden is willing to up the offer for the elite pass-rusher. Raiders GM Mike Mayock may not want to pay Clowney what it’s going to take to bring him to Las Vegas, but Gruden is certainly in his ear looking to increase the Raiders’ offer. Clowney has been linked to a multitude of teams thus far including Cleveland, Tennessee, Seattle, and now Las Vegas. Reports have said that he expects to sign soon, hopefully prior to training camp at the end of July.
