Jadeveon Clowney is not going to play for the Browns
The defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is not really rushing in finding a new team in the NFL, ESPN reports. We now understand that Clowney has turned down Cleveland Browns’ offer to join them for the new season. Here are some details about this story in this edition of our free NFL expert picks.
The 27-years old Jadeveon Clowney played for the Seattle Seahawks in 2019, following his four years sting at the Houston Texans. According to ESPN’s reporter Jake Trotter, Browns’ offer for Clowney was “lucrative.” Despite this, the defensive end said “No” to the Browns.
Jake Trotter claims that Cleveland Browns made the biggest offer to Jadeveon Clowney to date, and it’s still possible to see him sign. Most likely, Clowney is waiting to see all offers for him at the table and choose the best one. It’s believed that he turned down not just the Browns, but also the Seahawks and the Tennessee Titans. According to some rumors, Clowney is asking more than $20 million per season for a long-term contract.
We know for sure that the Philadelphia Eagles would not pay more than $10 million for Clowney. The Eagles thought about signing the defensive end, but they are reluctant to offer him the money he wants.
The Cleveland Browns continue with their efforts of strengthening their roster, though. It’s believed that the Browns are also interested in the former Minnesota Vikings rusher Everson Griffen. Just like Jadeveon Clowney, right now Griffen is kind of hesitant to sign with any team, waiting for the best possible offer.
That’s what is happening around the defensive end Jadeveon Clowney at the moment. We are still waiting to see which team he will choose to sign with for the new season. Meanwhile, stay with us because we will provide you with free NFL expert picks when the new campaign starts.
