Russell Wilson tells Jadeveon Clowney: I need you, homie

A year ago, Jadeveon Clowney did not get a new team until Aug. 31. He should find a home before that this year, though he remains a free agent.

The question is: Will it be a new home?

The Seahawks want the defensive end to return. The sides, though, have not reached agreement on a deal.

The Jets and Titans are other teams who have at least inquired with Clowney’s camp.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson made another pitch to Clowney in recent days. Wilson first campaigned for Clowney to return while at the Pro Bowl.

On an Instagram chat with fans, Wilson was asked if he could “talk some sense” into Clowney.

Clowney come back,” Wilson answered, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “If you are listening, bro. We’ve got another Super Bowl to win, man. We need you. We need you to come back Clowney. Clowney, Clowney if you can hear me, please come back, bro. I need you, homie.”

Clowney is the No. 12 player on our list of the top 100 free agents, one of only 10 free agents who remain uncommitted for 2020.

  1. Wilson might have had to much to drink before making that statement, but it’s true.

    The Seahawks are a few pieces away from being Super Bowl contenders.

    I have them ranked as the 3rd best team in the NFL (predraft) only behind Chiefs and Ravens. The 49ers might have something to say about that…

    Clowney will get signed after the draft.

  2. If he signs with the Browns he will be easy to forget as a Hawks fan. Go have fun with Baker Mayfield and all the other head cases in that locker room…you can watch the Hawks in the playoffs without you from your couch in CLEVELAND and wonder what could have been.

    Once he shows everyone that the only thing that matters for him is money, we fans can shake our head in disgust and then won’t even look back once.

    Stable winning organization …..or the Browns….you pick.

    All that being said if he stays with the hawks I will be pretty happy about it. Not holding my breath. They will be a good team either way.

  3. That’s easy for Russ, maybe he should give up some of his money to his bro if he wants him that bad….

  4. Russell’s full quote was “I need you but at a reasonable price. You are a run-stuffer not a pass-rusher so you should not expect to make a king’s Ransom. Teams can find run stuffers for half the price you’re looking for. “

  5. Russell needs him but made sure that the Seahawks can’t afford him. Kinda selfish.

  6. Russell should give him some of his $65M signing bonus if he wants him to come back so bad. It’s easy for the guy with a $31M cap number to beg for all these people but Clowney needs to feed his family too.

  7. Hoping the Seahawks overpay him, and give him a lot of guaranteed money.

    One year dynasty, and yet another reason why.

  8. It’s business, not personal. Clowney knows Russell, the team, the fans all want him to remain in Seattle. However, he has to get the most value for his service that he can. Hopefully it will work out.

  9. “Clowney come back,” Wilson answered, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “If you are listening, bro. We’ve got another Super Bowl to win, man. We need you. We need you to come back Clowney. Clowney, Clowney if you can hear me, please come back, bro. I need you, homie.”

    Will Russell take a pay cut from his mostly guaranteed $35m/yr to make it happen??

    —————————————————

    Absolutely not!!! Russell Wilson is no Tom Brady.

  11. “I need you homie” should have been “We need you homie”. There’s no I in team.

  12. namriverrat69 should have read the article. If he had, he would see that Russ said. “We need you” repeatedly a few times, including to win the Super Bowl. He made it a very personal plea to Clowney at the end by using “I need you” to ensure the message was at that one to one, in person, level.

  13. Seattle hasn’t won a playoff game since the legion of boom. Adding Clowney will not make that much difference.

  14. Seattle hasn’t won a playoff game since the legion of boom. Adding Clowney will not make that much difference.

    Do you actually watch football? Seahawks beat the Eagles in the wildcard round just a couple months ago.

    Why type things like that, it makes you look clueless. You can google it first.

    “What type things like that”, SERIOUSLY? What that make you look like?

  16. Russell Wilson taking a 10 million dollar pay cut would help. Does he really think he deserves $35 million per season for guiding his team to a quick exit in the playoffs?

    * blank stare *….*backs away slowly*

  18. Wilson has taken most of the bread, and he is telling Clown to come and play for a few bread crumbs that are left.
