Three-time Pro Bowl edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney remains one of the top NFL free agents on the market heading into the summer.

It was noted earlier this spring that Clowney was likely to re-sign with he Cleveland Browns after he teamed up with Myles Garrett to tally nine sacks a season ago. However, nothing has happened on that end yet.

The former No. 1 overall pick from South Carolina has to be on the radar of multiple teams heading into a slow part of the offseason. He’s not scheme specific, has had a ton of success in the past and is still relatively young at the age of 29. Below, we look at four ideal landing spots for Clowney.


Jadeveon Clowney re-signs with the Cleveland Browns

This still seems to make the most sense. Clowney put up his best performance since 2018 under Joe Woods last season. He seemed to be a perfect fit opposite star edge rusher Myles Garrett.

The question here remains finances. Is Clowney still looking to collect a long-term deal? If not, he might be looking at a lucrative short-term contract. Cleveland currently finds itself a league-high $26.96 million under the salary cap. It has the cash to re-sign Clowney.

Jadeveon Clowney contract (2021): one-year, $8 million

It sure seems like Clowney is looking at a bit more than that if he were to re-sign with the Browns for one year. Said deal would likely come in at $12 million. Will Cleveland pony up he cash for that? It remains to be seen.


Indianapolis Colts bring Jadeveon Clowney back to the AFC South

In obvious win-now mode after trading for Matt Ryan, there’s a chance that Colts general manager Chris Ballard looks to add another veteran to the mix. Indy already acquired fellow Pro Bowl edge rusher Yannick Ngakoue in a trade with the Las Vegas Raiders earlier in the offseason. Teaming him up with Clowney would be all sorts of ridiculous.
