Seahawks still open to re-signing Jadeveon Clowney
The Seattle Seahawks are still open to re-signing free agent Jadeveon Clowney.
Clowney was one of the bigger names on the free agent market, but his asking price was too high, which has led to him being unsigned a month into the new league year.
Seahawks GM John Schneider told reporters on a pre-draft call Tuesday that the team is still open to re-signing Clowney.
“We made an effort to re-sign him. The door is not closed, but we couldn’t wait any longer, and so we had to conduct business,” Schneider said via NBC Sports Northwest’s Joe Fann.
Schneider saying they had to “conduct business” was a reference to the team’s additions of Bruce Irvin and Benson Mayowa in free agency.
As for Clowney, he was acquired by Seattle in a trade with Houston last year. Tennessee and Cleveland have been mentioned as potential spots for Clowney. Seattle is still an option as well as Schneider says. Clowney had 31 tackles, three sacks, an interception and four forced fumbles for the Seahawks last year.
