The 2022 season is not ending well for the Cleveland Browns on multiple fronts.
Not only will they finish under .500, but the team reportedly sent defensive end Jadeveon Clowney home just days before their regular season finale.
“Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was sent home by the Browns Friday and won’t practice with the team after remarks he made to cleveland.com on Thursday,” Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com said. “His status for Sunday is uncertain.”
He is not expected to play Sunday versus the Steelers, Brad Stainbrook of 247Sports.com reports.
It appears his previous comments about his future upset a lot of people.
“I just feel like I need to be around somebody that believes in me and my ability,” Clowney, who will turn 30 on Feb. 14 said. “(It can’t) just be me believing in myself. I believe in myself more than anybody.”
…”There’s supposed to be a lot of changes around here next year, so they might not be back — and I might,” Clowney said.
He also stated the Browns coaching staff is putting him in bad situations to make Myles Garrett look better.
“You’re all trying to get somebody into the Hall of Fame when all that matters is winning,” Clowney said. “Everybody got here for a reason, and we can all make plays. I know I am.”
The 29-year-old will finish the year with 28 tackles, including two sacks, while deflecting three passes with a forced fumble and fumble recovery over 12 contests.
Clowney signed a one-year contract with the Browns in May. It does not appear he will back in 2023.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
