Cleveland Browns Player not getting an Extension No. 2 – Jadeveon Clowney
The Cleveland Browns will likely be a destination for defensive ends for as long as Myles Garrett is playing at an elite level. An above-average guy can come in, see a ton of one on one opportunities, and really shine.
Jadeveon Clowney came in and completely rebuilt his creditability. After two poor seasons as the number one edge option with the Seahawks and Titans, Clowney came to the Browns and was a dominant force.
Garrett has the better stat line, but I would argue with anyone that Clowney was equally as disruptive. However, there are a few issues that could snag even a return of Clowney, let alone a long-term deal.
Clowney has always been a guy to sit back and wait, which really hasn’t worked out well for him in the past, but only time will tell this offseason. However, I don’t see Berry being the most patient person in the world. The rumor is the Browns have an aggressive two-year deal in front of him, but he still hasn’t made a decision.
I do think the Browns will find a way to bring him back in 2022, but if he has any similar success to 2021, there’s no way they will be able to bring him back when the Watson cap hit skyrockets and Garrets goes to nearly $30 million next season.
I think Clowney is the perfect fit for the Browns, but I don’t see enough money to lock him in for the future.
