Browns expected to sign Jadeveon Clowney as free specialist designs second visit with group

The former Pro Bowl pass rusher recently met with the Browns in March

Jadeveon Clowney has been connected to the Cleveland Browns for over a year, with the pass rusher allegedly diverting down a lucrative offer from the AFC North competitors in 2020 free agency. On Monday, he’s at long last expected to join the group. Cleveland is attempting to orchestrate an encounter with Clowney, probably the greatest name still unsigned this offseason, for the second time in two months. And all assumptions are that the two sides will strike an arrangement to place Clowney in a Browns uniform for 2021, as indicated by CBS Sports senior journalist Jonathan Jones.

Clowney, who played for the Titans in 2020, left his last visit with the Browns toward the finish of March without an agreement. Be that as it may, with the 2021 draft moving close, the former Pro Bowler is set to get another home – his fourth in as numerous seasons. Cleveland, in the interim, is set to make its splashiest expansion yet at defensive end, which was generally viewed as a main concern for the group in the draft. The Browns signed former Falcons first-rounder Takkarist McKinley prior in free agency, in spite of the fact that he projects as to a greater extent a rotational pass rusher inverse All-Pro Myles Garrett.

The No. 1 generally speaking pick back in 2014, Clowney has had a calm free agent market in consecutive years, likely partially because of wounds. The former Texans standout hasn’t played a full season since 2017, when he logged a profession high 9.5 sacks, missing three games with the Seahawks in 2019 because of a games hernia; at that point missing portion of 2020 in Tennessee on account of a knee issue. At the point when sound, Clowney has frequently compensated for unspectacular sack numbers with forcing size and rawness, particularly against the run.

In Cleveland, he’d probably start inverse Garrett and close by new protective tackle Malik Jackson, supplanting individual free specialist Olivier Vernon.
