Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney remains unsigned with June on the horizon, but it reportedly hasn’t been from an absence of interest in other teams.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported this week that the Browns made a stronger offer to Clowney than any other team at one point in the free agency process. While it may have been bigger than other offers, it wasn’t big enough for Clowney to join the club.

On Thursday, Browns defensive coordinator Joe Woods was asked about the team’s interest in Clowney. He acknowledged hearing the same things as everyone else, but directed inquiries about the team’s position to General Manager Andrew Berry.

“Obviously he’s been a really great player in this league . . . that’s a question you have to ask Andrew. I see the articles too. . . . All I’m really focused on is coaching the guys we have,” Woods said, via Daryl Ruiter of 92.3 The Fan.

Berry said in early April that Clowney is a good player and that the Browns will always be looking for ways to add talent to the roster without specifying if they were actively pursuing Clowney.

  1. Clowney’s ship has sailed from the Browns. Good luck finding another team this year.

    =======================

    Lol as if they wouldn’t jump at the chance to bring him in if he changes his mind. Please.

  3. This one is simple. Clowney wants a 1 year deal. Says he wants to prove himself so he can get bigger money in another year. Browns want to sign him but want him for multiple years. They offered a multi year deal…….and it isnt “Clowney $20 mill a year” want. Thats the ONLY reason Clowney hasnt taken the deal yet. Has nothing to do with him not wanting to play in Cleveland. Clowney has had time in the NFL to ” prove” himself. There is no market for him to sign a ” 1 year prove himself” deal. He is already a proven commodity, and his agent is pricing him out of his market.

  4. It isn’t going to a team and help them win a championship that is important for The Clown it is about how much money he can make. With his health track record it doesn’t look to promising

  5. Signing a guy who gets hurt all the time and wants $20 million a year is the most Browns thing ever.

  6. It sounds like the Browns are saying good riddance to Clowney.

  7. An edge rusher who doesn’t get sacks isn’t going to get $20M/year. Ditto for an edge rusher who can’t stay healthy. Clowney’s agent needs a reality check.
