Jadeveon Clowney says he’s going to the Titans

Jadeveon Clowney has finally found his team.

Clowney has chosen the Titans, he told Josina Anderson. There’s no word on the value of the contract.

It came down to familiarity over economics,” Clowney said. “Packing now to head there in morning.”

The Saints and Seahawks had also been mentioned as potential destinations for Clowney, the former No. 1 overall pick of the Texans who played in Seattle last year.

The Titans’ opener is on Monday night, September 14, against the Broncos, so Clowney will have an extra day to learn Tennessee’s defense. Clowney should provide an immediate impact, both as a pass rusher and a run stopper, and a Titans Defense that was mediocre last year should get better.

  1. Good Luck JD. FIRST!!! If he can stay healthy..motivated…and interested the Titans are getting a good one imho. It should be easy to be motivated as he probably wants to show teams they made a big mistake by letting him sit there unsigned plus dude is playing for his old coach. He may not “Get Home” so to speak so he doesnt have great sack numbers but he is disruptive as heck.

  2. No camp, not in football shape, he’ll be gassed in Denver by halftime. That altitude is something.

  3. Saints may have dodged a bullet. Not over coming up with the money, but getting your money’s worth. Unsure of qualities in the locker room as well, but team somehow seems to be able to screen out or avoid those who won’t fit in.

  4. If its 12MM the Titans probably overpaid.
    He’s a run stuffer not a pass rusher and he’s missed the entire preseason.
    That will impact his first 4 games.

  5. He’ll ball out for several games. Will be injured for several games. Will be a non-factor for several games. He’s one of those rare defensive players who is capable of taking over the game, but he simply doesn’t do it all that often.

  6. I think it might actually be better for the Seahawks that they didn’t end up getting this guy. He is way too inconsistent and disappears in meaningful games. This gives an opportunity for some young names to step up and get some playing time.

  7. I’ve seen him take over a game and next one disappear. Reminds me of Mario Williams. One game first series he bull rushes the tackle right into the QB. I thought wow here we go. Never heard his number called the rest of the game.

    I bet he can’t wait to play Houston twice a year

    I didn’t even think about that. Good point.

  9. The Saints are the real winner too. He’ll play six games total this year and have two sacks. The rest of the time he’ll be injured. Maybe he can make one big hit that would make him worth that $15M.

  10. The Titans have always been a team that’s had a knack for taking injury prone free agents and getting the best out of them. Guys like Kyle Vanden Bosch and Brian Orakpo come to mind.

    Players tend to arrive in Nashville thinking it’s a cowtown and just a temporary stop during their career, but it grows on you. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him have a great season and end up spending the rest of his career there.
