Browns still haven’t given up on the prospect of signing Jadeveon Clowney, per report

The Cleveland Browns have not presented up as it relates to the chance of signing go rusher Jadeveon Clowney, according to Mary Kay Cabot of 

A previous very first in general decide and 3-time Pro Bowler, Clowney has been on the open industry for 3 months immediately after shelling out the 2019 period with the Seahawks. Final thirty day period, ESPN’s Adam Schefter claimed that the Browns have already manufactured Clowney his ideal offer in the course of the 2020 offseason. Clowney, who was reportedly hoping to acquire $17 million-$18 million on a yearly basis, reportedly “turned his nose” up at Cleveland’s offer. 

“I think they’ve been the most intense workforce with him financially,” Schefter informed 850 ESPN Cleveland. “I just think he has balked at going to Cleveland for regardless of what cause. I think he’s been hesitant to go due to the fact if he was not he would have long gone already due to the fact it really is the most revenue. It can be the richest offer on the table and he has not taken it. Why is that? I really don’t know.

“Is that not seeking to be in that town? Is that a lack of perception in the firm? I really don’t know what it is. You can find no doubt that Cleveland has provided the most revenue to date. For regardless of what cause he has not been ready to acquire it so significantly. That does not necessarily mean that it could not modify, but it has not modified just still.”

Despite coming up quick in their very first endeavor to land him, the Browns have not dominated out the chance of signing Clowney. That optimism might be based mostly on the point that Clowney might be running out of choices, with NFL groups hoping to open education camp late future thirty day period.

Cleveland is hoping to enhance Garrett with extra expertise on its defensive facet of the ball in 2020. In no cost agency, the workforce signed defensive tackle Andrew Billings, a previous third-round decide who formulated into a starter in Cincinnati. They also signed former Raiders safety Karl Joseph, a previous very first-round decide who was taking pleasure in a solid 2019 marketing campaign ahead of an injuries cut his period quick.
