Report: Jadeveon Clowney may wait until training camp to sign
Jadeveon Clowney is not close to finding a team to sign with, and it sounds like that may remain the case for quite some time.
The defensive lineman remains unsigned nearly two weeks into free agency, and nothing appears close. According to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, there is a growing belief around the league that Clowney may wait until training camp to sign.
Things can change quickly in free agency, and it’s cautioned that Clowney might sign quickly if something comes his way that he likes. However, he has yet to receive an offer to his liking. The Seattle Seahawks have reportedly offered Clowney a deal somewhere in the $13-15 million per year range. That is well short of what Clowney has been looking for.
Clowney’s health is likely an issue, as teams can’t examine him themselves before making a major investment in him. It’s not clear when that will change. What is clear is that Clowney isn’t really willing to settle for less than his perceived value, even if it means sitting and waiting for a while.
