Jadeveon Clowney still remains the biggest free agent on the market as the 2020 NFL season looms closer and closer.
As the NFL world settles down for the start of summer and prepares for a pandemic-challenged season and beyond, we are still waiting on Clowney to choose a team that has a contract offer that he likes.
He has been connected to the Raiders, Titans, Seahawks, Browns, and Eagles throughout the offseason, but nothing has happened so far.
On Saturday, Michael Thomas decided to add one more team into the mix.
The New Orleans Saints all-pro took to Twitter and alluded to his team signing Clowney.
“Clowney to New Orleans or I don’t want to hear it”
The Saints don’t have nearly enough cap room to sign Clowney, so a signing there is highly unlikely.
The seventh-year player out of South Carolina has never recorded more than 9.5 sacks in a season, which could explain why teams have been so hesitant to dole out the $22 million (or more) that he had been seeking initially.
Last season, he recorded 31 tackles, three sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumbles recoveries and an interception in 13 games. Although he has only missed nine games over the past five seasons, there are concerns over the core and knee injuries sustained throughout his career.
The South Carolina native had reportedly lowered his asking price to less than $17 million and would be content playing out a one or two-year deal.
