1. Jadeveon Clowney
The Browns went hard after Clowney last offseason, but he decided to bet on himself and signed with the Titans instead. He played really well in Tennessee, but missed eight games plus the playoffs due to a hip issue and then a torn meniscus that required offseason surgery.
He missed five games in 2019, and his early-career injuries are well documented. Even when Clowney has been on the field, he’s dealt with smaller issues that have prevented him from being the game-wrecker he can be. His knees have been through so much, and at some point they won’t be able to hold up anymore.
That time will come, but perhaps it won’t be 2021. Clowney is by all accounts looking great and is at or nearly at 100%. His low sack production was a reason many fans wanted nothing to do with him, but availability was always the biggest argument against signing Clowney.
Once again, if the Browns were willing to invest $10 million into Clowney, they must have felt fairly decent about his health. Only time will tell if they were correct. If they were, there may not be a better EDGE duo in the league between Clowney and Myles Garrett.
