We are four days away from the start of the 2020 NFL season, and Jadeveon Clowney has finally found a home. After receiving offers from the Seahawks, Ravens, and Saints, Clowney has opted to sign with the Tennessee Titans.
Dianna Russini of ESPN was the first to report the news:
Clowney, 27, had a down 2019 season recording just three sacks. The former number one overall pick in 2014 also wasn’t healthy last year. Clowney suffered a core muscle injury in Week caused him to miss a lot of time. Clowney now hopes to cash in on a one-year deal with the hopes of cashing in big-time next offseason.
Clowney gets to reunite with Mike Vrabel, who coached him in Houston. That was likely a big selling point to Clowney. Clowney was at his best in Vrabel’s scheme, when he notched a career-high 9.5 sacks in 2017. Clowney can still ball out. His 24.8% pass rush win rate ranked third in the NFL despite an injury-plagued season.
The antics of Vic Beasley also likely helped push this move. Beasley straight up didn’t show up to the start training camp and never gave the team any notice. Finally, Beasley was moved off the non-football injury today.
Clowney spent the 2019 season with the Seattle Seahawks after he was acquired for a third-round pick, linebacker Jacob Martin, and pass-rusher Barkevious Mingo. Since Clowney signed so late, Seattle will not receive a compensation pick for losing him. We should see a motivated Clowney with a chance to cash in during the 2021 NFL offseason.
