Browns Sign Jadeveon Clowney to One-Year Deal

Published

The Cleveland Browns have signed free agent defensive end Jadeveon Clowney to a one-year deal worth up to $10 million. 

Cleveland hosted Clowney nearly a month ago, but the sides parted ways without striking a deal. A mutual interest still remained.

They reconvened again in Cleveland this week and were finally able to come to terms on a deal.

The Browns attempted to sign the former first-overall pick last offseason, but Clowney ultimately decided to join the Tennessee Titans on a one-year deal for $12 million. His short tenure in Nashville proved to be a disappointment.

Clowney totaled just 19 tackles and four tackles-for-loss and failed to record a sack.

He played only eight games before missing the second half of the season with a torn meniscus. As a result of his inability to produce, Tennessee was one of the league’s worst pass rushing teams with just 19 sacks on the season, the third-fewest in the NFL.

In pairing Clowney with Myles Garrett, Cleveland now boasts one of the league’s top pass rushing duos.

While Clowney struggled to make an impact as a top edge rusher with the Titans and Seahawks over the last two seasons, the Browns have to be optimistic that increased one-on-one opportunities will allow him to return to the dominant form he displayed in his final two years in Houston. He had 19.5 sacks and 37 tackles-for-loss in that span.
