Mike Vrabel on Jadeveon Clowney: Nothing off the table, nothing on the table

Jadeveon Clowney said early this month that he’s ready to go after having core muscle surgery this offseason, but that hasn’t led to a change in his employment status.

Clowney remains one of the top available free agents on the market and it doesn’t sound like anything is brewing with one of the teams that’s been frequently linked to him in recent months. Titans head coach Mike Vrabel was on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Thursday and said that the team remains open to adding the defensive end while giving no indication that a deal is likely or imminent.

“Not talked to JD personally,” Vrabel said. “I would say Jon and I continue to evaluate the roster and the available free agents. As of now, I would say that nothing is off the table but nothing is certainly on the table either. He’s not on the team.”

Clowney said he knows “it’s a slow process until teams really can see me and see what I got and give me physicals and everything.” We’re not much closer to knowing when that might change, which means it’s a good chance that Clowney’s going to remain on the market for a while.

  1. How much do very good run stuffers get paid? 8-10MM?
    I might do 10MM. But I’d be concerned Clowney would be sad he wasn’t overpaid and not perform well.
    He should play on another one year prove it deal, otherwise I wouldn’t be interested in paying up for a long term deal.

  2. The issue is Clowney wants around $20 million a year, so far no idiot GM has paid him. Even BoB in Houston would be the prime GM to make this move hasn’t gone back and resigned him. Seahawks are somewhere below $15 million probably more like $12 million, few teams have that cap space and most of those teams are perennial losers. If he wants onto a winning team he is going to have to take a hefty cut in pay.

  3. I’m just not feeling the value in this guy. Talented for sure, but never off the charts productivity.

    Your view on him is way off…sounds more like Matthew Stafford or Derek Carr.

    Clowney gets injured a lot and he’s a bit over hyped.

  5. I honestly also wonder about how hard he’s going to work and how much he disappears if he doesn’t get the money he wants.

    He disappeared quite a bit last year on a 1 year prove it deal so…

    I said this before and I’ll say it again I am not sure how a guy with that much talent can disappear like he does.

  6. I am not sure how a guy with that much talent can disappear like he does.

    It’s called laziness.

  7. The advanced stats love this guy. But regular ole stats, like sacks, don’t. It’s weird. Great run stuffer, creates tons of pressures, and wins his assignments at a very high rate. Just doesn’t seem to get home to the QB on a high enough percentage of those pressures. Certainly not worth $17-20m for sure (although I can’t fault him for trying to get all he can). But I would argue he worth $14-15m if he can stay healthy.

  8. WOW, I’ve never seen so many over-priced and over-paid players, it wouldn’t take long to burn through the salary cap and only have 10 players, $20mil/yr CB, WR OL, DL and >$30mil/yr QBs?

    I’m shocked the owners didn’t throw the anchor out with the last CBA on this out of hand pay now days, there’s a minimum why is there no league maxium?
