The Cleveland Browns have already been linked to defensive end Jadeveon Clowney since last year’s offseason, before he signed with the Tennessee Titans. The team’s interest in acquiring the 28-year-old never wavered as he reportedly visited the Browns last week to hear their pitch for the upcoming season.
When asked regarding the team’s “obsession” with Clowney, Cleveland.com analyst Mary Kay Cabot insisted that it is not the case despite the team’s extensive efforts to recruit the three-time Pro Bowler. The team is definitely interested, but not tripping over themselves to sign him.
“I think ‘obsessed’ is too strong a word,” Cabot writes. “I think the Browns would like to sign him if he’s healthy and if the price is right. If he’s fully recovered from his surgically-repaired torn meniscus, he can be a force off the edge for the Browns, both in terms of disrupting the quarterback and stopping the run.”
Clowney previously inked a one-year, $13 million contract to play for the Titans in the 2020 NFL season.
