The Browns pursued Jadeveon Clowney last year, but he rejected Cleveland and eventually signed with the Titans.
Maybe the second time will be the charm.
The Browns hosted Clowney on a free agent visit on Wednesday, according to the transaction wire. Per Mary Cay Cabot of Cleveland.com, that visit was over as of the early evening and a signing is not imminent.
Cleveland’s pursuit of Clowney ostensibly came to an end when the team re-negotiated Olivier Vernon’s deal in July. Clowney ultimately signed a one-year deal worth $12 million with the Titans in September.
Clowney played only half the 2020 season before going on injured reserve with a torn meniscus. He recorded four passes defensed, four tackles for loss, and six quarterback hits but no sacks for Tennessee.
Clowney has played 83 of a possible 112 games since entering the league as the Texans’ No. 1 overall pick in 2014. He has 32.0 sacks and 75 tackles for loss with 86 quarterback hits in seven seasons.
