Jadeveon Clowney’s career is basically done with the Cleveland Browns after the team sent him home this week over comments he previously said in the media. He will now be sidelined for the final regular season game on Sunday, according to multiple reports.
Clowney, a three-time Pro Bowler, spoke harshly of his situation with Browns in an interview with Cleveland.com.
“Ninety-five percent sure I won’t be back,” Clowney told the outlet. “But there’s still that five percent You never know what can happen.”
Browns defensive ends coach Chris Kiffin decided to expose him by telling reporters that Clowney refused to play on first or second downs against the Baltimore Ravens on Dec. 17. The veteran defender would only play on third downs.
“Clowney told Kiffin then it was due to injury. Kiffin says he now realizes that injury wasn’t the reason,” tweeted ESPN’s Jake Trotter.
Clowney, who will turn 30 next month, has been sidelined for several games this season due to injury and a concussion.
The former No. 1 overall pick of the Houston Texans has spent the last two seasons in Cleveland. He’s registered just two sacks in 12 games this season, compared to his career-high of 9.5 sacks in 2017 when he played for the Houston Texans.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
