Reported Seahawks offer for Jadeveon Clowney revealed
Jadeveon Clowney has turned down a lot of money to remain a free agent.
Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk said in an appearance on 106.7 The Fan’s “Chad Dukes vs. The World” that Clowney has turned down offers from the Seattle Seahawks and Cleveland Browns, and neither was particularly cheap.
“My understanding is the Seahawks have been in the range of $15 million on a one-year deal for Jadeveon Clowney,” Florio said, via Garrett Stepien of 247 Sports. “The Seahawks have been led to believe that the Browns offered 18 (million), and he has yet to take that.
“I don’t know what he wants. With him, it comes down to getting a number that he’s happy with.”
This fits with what we’ve heard previously about the Browns being Clowney’s most aggressive suitor, but the pass rusher simply isn’t taking their offer.
It’s not clear what Clowney wants. He’s coming off a season in which he had injury concerns and collected just three sacks. Yes, he is in his prime, but he’s certainly not a free agent while his value is at its highest. Perhaps he doesn’t like the one-year deal. Regardless, he clearly views himself as an elite commodity. He may be right, but that’s not how teams are reacting so far.
