What is Jadeveon Clowney still a free agent?
Right now there are a few things that we have to assume as facts:
-Teams are concerned about Jadeveon Clowney’s medical history, which makes them very hesitant to give out a big deal without being able to check him out personally.
-Clowney initially wanted to be the highest-paid EDGE in the NFL, or at least close to it. However, the money was never there for him even when there was still a chance that teams could bring him in for a physical immediately.
-Franchise tags, re-signings and free agent EDGEs finding a different home quickly shriveled up a lot of the potential market that Clowney may have had if his medicals had been taken care of before the pandemic.
-After backing off of his initial price, we can guess that no one was ready to top $20 million AAV and it sounds like he is pushing hard for an $18-17 million AAV and no one is biting on that yet either.
So, with those assumptions let’s take a look at the Browns as a potential new home for Jadeveon Clowney.
