Browns sign linebacker Jadeveon Clowney

The Cleveland Browns have signed linebacker Jadeveon Clowney according to the Associated Press on Wednesday. The terms of the deal are for one year and $10 million.

Humorously Clowney stated there was something “appealing” about joining the Browns this season. Even though Clowney stated that something was “winning” (the Browns reached the playoffs last year with a record of 11 wins and five losses and clobbered the Pittsburgh Steelers 48-37 in the AFC Wildcard), you cannot ignore the fact that money talks, and Clowney will be making a fair amount of it this season.

The 28-year-old defensive star from Rock Hill, South Carolina, will be joining his fourth NFL franchise. He has previously played five seasons with the Houston Texans, and one season each with the Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans.

Last year in Tennessee, Clowney played half the season and had 19 combined tackles (14 solo tackles and five assisted tackles), six quarterback hits, four tackles for a loss, four pass deflections, and one forced fumble. For his career, Clowney had 255 combined tackles (186 solo tackles and 69 assisted tackles), 86 quarterback hits, 75 tackles for a loss, 32 sacks, one interception for 27 yards, and one touchdown, 18 pass deflections, nine forced fumbles, and eight fumble recoveries for 81 more yards and three more touchdowns.

In addition to playing in three straight Pro Bowls from 2016 to 2018, Clowney is best known for being the first overall pick by the Texans in the 2014 National Football League Draft. Clowney played his college football in his home state of South Carolina.

The signing of Clowney was one of two significant signings by the Browns of defensive players in the offseason. The other was safety John Johnson, who Cleveland signed from the Los Angeles Rams to a four-year deal worth $33.75 million on March 17.
