Seahawks likely do not have salary cap space for Jadeveon Clowney

There has been talk about the Seattle Seahawks potentially re-signing Jadeveon Clowney, but there could be a significant impediment. Seattle might just not have the salary cap space to sign him.

Spotrac projects the Seahawks as having $21 million in cap space. However, that does not take into account free agent Bruce Irvin’s contract, which will count for $5.9 million against the cap, according to ESPN’s Brady Henderson.

That only leaves around $15 million in space, and Henderson notes that the team has some of that space left for injury replacements and the practice squad.

All in all, if Clowney is seeking around $20 million or more as has been reported, the likelihood of him taking below $15 million seems unlikely. That is a big reason why a return to Seattle does not look like it will happen.

The 27-year-old only had three sacks in 13 games last season but is still a disruptive force on the field.
