Report: Browns interested in Jadeveon Clowney
The Cleveland Browns may not be done making big additions to their team ahead of the 2020 season.
According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, the Browns have shown interest in free agent defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney, and some in the NFL think they have come closest to signing him.
From @SportsCenter earlier: Cleveland Browns have shown interest in Jadeveon Clowney, and some people around league believe Cleveland got closer with Clowney than other suitors, though nothing ultimately happened from recent talks. Seattle's offer hasn't been what Clowney wants.

There is no deal yet, and it’s not clear if there will still be one and if the sides are still talking. Clowney has consistently kept an asking price that has not yet been met by any team, though dropping it slightly seems to have sparked some interest.
Clowney’s market is still moving slowly. As talented as he is, his three sacks last season were underwhelming, and there are worries about his health. He is, however, the best available free agent still on the market. Pairing him with Myles Garrett would give the Browns a very imposing defensive line, and that alone makes their interest understandable.
