Jadeveon Clowney: “Much better feeling” being back with Browns

Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney re-signed with the Browns this week in a move that will allow him to stay for the same place for two straight years for the first time in a while.

Clowney was traded by the Texans to the Seahawks in 2019 and then spent a year with the Titans before joining the Browns in 2021. That makes this year the first since 2018 that he has not had to get acclimated to a new situation while also preparing himself to play football.

“It’s a much better feeling,” Clowney said, via the team’s website. “You’re just always excited. I’m excited to be around them. I know what I’m dealing with and I know who I got. I know what we can do together. I’m just hoping we can take that step forward and get where we need to get this season.”

Clowney said the team had a great defense last season and “got some more key players on offense and defense” this offseason. The result is a roster that Clowney believes has “a shot” at the Super Bowl, although the league’s disciplinary decision on quarterback Deshaun Watson could impact that possibility before the team hits the field later this year.

  1. Another in the latest bunch of dumb moves by the Browns. Clowney is quite happy to underperform for whatever excessive amount they are paying him. There’s a reason no other team signed him.

  2. The fact the browns gave him Only a one year deal and had to break it down over 4 additional dummy years says a lot. One, it says that Clowney is nothing more than an annual Merc and 2: that the browns actually think they are good enough to go all in and structure these new contracts by busting up chunks of signing bonus’ into future years. I mean yeah, that’s not going to come back to sink them.

  3. I’m a fan of the Clowney and Cooper moves.

    Not a fan of the Watson and Njoku ones.

  4. He played hard in Seattle, even when he was hurt. While I was upset with him leaving the Hawks, I wish him the best….but just not with the Browns! :)))

  5. The Clown knows Cleveland is throwing money at trash. He should be like a pig in slop. After two quarters, he can go back to his couch.

  6. He’s not a sack monster but he is better than Myles Garrett at stuffing the run. There needs to be a new stat created for run stuffing. Great move by the Browns.
