Andrew Berry: Jadeveon Clowney’s a good player, we’re always actively looking

A report this week indicated that Jadeveon Clowney is unlikely to return to the Seahawks and named the Browns as one of the teams in the mix for the free agent defensive end.

It’s not the first time that the Browns have been mentioned as a potential suitor for the No. 3 player on our list of available free agents and General Manager Andrew Berry was asked about the team’s interest during a conference call on Friday.

“I’m not going to get into the habit of commenting on players that aren’t on our roster,” Berry said, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. “Jadeveon, he’s a good football player. We’re actively always looking. We’re going to be aggressive and adding talent to the roster.”

The Titans and Jets have confirmed that they’ve been in contact with Clowney at some point.

The Browns signed Adrian Clayborn to go with Myles Garrett and Olivier Vernon, but they could move on from Vernon and get back over $15 million in cap space in the event they decided to go in a different direction by signing Clowney.

  1. Browns absolutely need to acquire Clowney and part with Vernon.

    They need as much defense as possible to make up for the Faker Mayfield pick.

  2. Falcons need this guy. Unfortunately, he’d probably balk just because of their new uniforms.

  3. I’d spend the money on Emerson Griffin rather than Clowney or Vernon who are both always hurt. Sometimes these GMs over analyze things.

  4. Because he is a GOOD PLAYER, pay him for being a good player. And the league is full of good players.He is not a GREAT PLAYER. no way.

  5. Any team that signs him should make sure his contract has plenty of incentives, including healthy per-game roster bonuses. He’s asking for $20M but with his injury history and lack of production makes that unlikely. Plus once he signs a big contract he’ll almost certainly be injured over 50% of the time.

    Teams thinking of signing this guy should spend their money wisely–on some other player.

  6. Seattle fan here. Incentive-laden contract would be a good idea for sure but I wonder how much offense he would take.

    He seems kind of sensitive to that sort of thing even though he totally deserves it based on health and production.
