Coveted free agent Jadeveon Clowney to sign with Tennessee Titans

Coveted free agent Jadeveon Clowney to sign with Tennessee Titans”

He reportedly wanted to miss training camp before signing with a team.

The New Orleans Saints, the other main suitor, made a very strong push for the defensive end, but their offer was lower by roughly $2 million, sources told ESPN's Dianna Russini.

In 2019, Clowney played 13 games in Seattle, where he notched one interception (which he took for a touchdown), two fumble recoveries, 31 tackles and seven tackles for loss. He hit free agency this past spring and is signing nine days before the Titan's 2020 season opener.

Clowney will be reunited with Titans head coach Mike Vrabel, who was on the Houston Texans' staff during Clowney's first three seasons. The Titans are slated to open their season against the Denver Broncos on the following Monday, Sept. 14.

Vrabel and the Titans reached the AFC championship game in 2019 and lost to eventual champions Kansas City Chiefs. Prior to previous year, the former SC standout had 18.5 sacks combined over the 2017 and 2018 campaigns.

Clowney has been one of the best pass rushers in the league over the past four years, making the Pro Bowl three straight years from 2016 to 2018.

Clowney, 27, suffered a core muscle injury in Week 10 last season and elected to postpone surgery until the offseason. So they're working to create room in case they sign Jadeveon Clowney.
