There have been many unsubstantiated reports and rampant speculation regarding Jadeveon Clowney’s free agent destination since the league year began in March.
Despite all the updates, there has been very little actual movement with Clowney in all the time he’s been on the market. We saw reports of him turning down $17-18M from the Browns, and have heard that the Titans have an offer on the table, among other interested teams. But no real movement.
Until this afternoon. This afternoon, things went crazy.
A respected Saints reported, Nader Mirfiq, had this report first that Clowney and the Saints were a near done deal:
The national writers started to pick up on the trail, though not as definitive. Dianna Russini was the first of the mainstream media to report:
Ian Rapoport weighed in on Clowney’s process:
Tom Pelissero dropped this bomb that the Saints really, really want Clowney and are pushing hard to acquire his services:
You, like me, may be wondering how the Saints could afford Clowney given their cap situation. Well, Mike Garafolo attempts to explain:
Rest assured, the Titans are not out of it yet. They, too, are making a strong push to reunite Clowney with his former defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel:
Neal Driscoll is a writer for Pro Football Network. He has sources that conflict greatly with our pal Nader’s report.
Apparently the Jaguars are involved? Lol okay Jaguars.
This is a hands-down full-on free-for-all as both teams attempt to convince Clowney to play for their squad in 2020.
All of these updates hit the timeline in under a 90-minute span on Thursday afternoon.
We’ll keep you updated on Broadway Sports when more info comes out, so check back soon, and keep your fingers crossed.
