Cleveland Browns Free Agent No. 2 to resign: Jadeveon Clowney
The $7 million man and former 2014 No.1 draft pick had a great season in Cleveland this past year. Clowney recorded nine sacks and seemed to really enjoy his time with the Browns.
He was the bookend on the defensive line opposite Myles Garrett, who had his best season as a pro. The connection between the two made for a very competitive weekly challenge of who would have a better game and try to get to the opposing quarterback and record a sack.
Clowney discussed his relationship with Garrett and also his time with the Browns to this point in a recent interview with the media as reported by Camryn Justice, a reporter for WEWS news.
Can Cleveland afford to give a bigger contract to the defensive end? He’ll certainly want more than the $7 million he received this past season. The Browns general manager has been creative in the past when giving other players new contracts. Hopefully, he can come up with a unique proposal that will have Clowney being drawn back to the team and a group he already says he feels comfortable with.
The fact that both Clowney and Garrett had some of their best career numbers this season would be a big point of emphasis for the front office while negotiating a new deal. Let’s hope Berry and his team can try and make a new offer something Clowney couldn’t refuse.
