The Seattle Seahawks are still hoping to re-sign free-agent Jadeveon Clowney and those hopes are getting stronger everyday that he doesn’t receive the type of offer he was seeking during the offseason.
Seattle have reportedly offered Clowney a contract at an estimate of $18 million per year, even though the defensive end was seeking closer to $20 million on the open market.
“The Seahawks remain waiting for their top pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney to decide whether to accept their bid or some other team’s. The 27-year-old, three-time Pro Bowl pass rusher hasn’t gotten any offer he likes this week. He’s been seeking at least $20 million per season. Seattle is believed to be offering $18.5 million per year, per Sports Illustrated’s Corbin Smith, plus familiarity, a coach and a locker room he’s said he loves.”
The 27-year-old is coming off a 2019 campaign where he recorded four forced fumbles and a pair of defensive touchdowns in just 13 games. His durability to stay on the field has been a concern dating back to his time with the Houston Texans and that is likely driving Clowney’s market down.
His best offer is looking like the Seahawks, so a return to Seattle would be huge for both sides.
