He flirted with the Browns last off-season when he was on the market. However, he elected to accept a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans.
The Browns are looking for help opposite stud defensive end Myles Garrett. Olivier Vernon was the defensive end opposite Garrett until he tore his Achilles.
Vernon tore his Achilles in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The 30-year-old is going to have limited suitors due to the torn Achilles.
Adrian Clayborn also played defensive end for the Browns. However, Clowney at his best is better than both Vernon and Clayborn.
The team recently added defensive end, Malik Jackson, as depth. He signed a one-year deal with the team.
Due to his lackluster season in Tennessee, Clowney will likely receive an affordable salary this season.
If Clowney does sign with the Browns — despite the signing of Jackson — it’ll be his fourth straight season with a new team. He spent five seasons with the Houston Texans.
He spent the 2019 season with the Seattle Seahawks. Then the aforementioned signing with the Titans.
Clowney appeared in eight games in 2020 with the Titans. He made eight starts.
It was the lowest amount of games that he played in during a season since four during his rookie season in 2014.
In his lone season with the Titans, Clowney had 19 tackles, including four tackles for a loss and six quarterback hits. He had zero sacks.
The zero sacks were the fewest he had in a season since his rookie campaign.
He also had one fumble recovery and four pass deflections.
In his career, Clowney has appeared in 83 games, including 74 starts. He has had 255 tackles, including 75 tackles for a loss and 80 quarterback hits.
The veteran also has 32.0 sacks in his career. However, he had 29.0 sacks with the Texans.
He has had one interception that was returned for a touchdown. He also has had nine forced fumbles.
Clowney has recovered eight fumbles, including returning one fumble for a touchdown. He also has had 18 pass deflections.
