Browns sign free agent Jadeveon Clowney

The Cleveland Browns have signed free-agent defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. He has agreed to a one-year contract for the 2021 season.

The one-year deal can be up to $10 million based on incentives.

Clowney was supposed to visit the team on Monday to sign the contract. However, due to alleged travel problems, Clowney’s arrival was pushed back until Wednesday when the contract was signed.

The Browns were interested in signing Clowney last season. Eventually, Clowney elected to sign a one-year contract with the Tennessee Titans late in the free-agent process.

He had a lackluster season with the Titans. He only appeared in eight games in his lone season with the Nashville, Tennessee team.

With the Browns, he’ll be aligned opposite of former No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett. Teams will have a tough time double-teaming them.

“I’ve been getting double-teamed an awful lot in this league, in my career,” Clowney said during his virtual news conference. “I’m looking forward to playing with somebody dominant on the other side in Myles Garrett who can draw a double-team. Maybe I can go one-on-one more.”

He visited with the Browns in March. At the time, the sides were not able to reach a contract.

“We’re excited to add Jadeveon to our defensive line,” Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said in a statement. “He’s a disruptive force that will help us against the run and the pass. We’ve been able to make some nice additions to our defense throughout free agency and we are looking forward to getting to work, so we can improve our team.”

Before signing with the Titans, Clowney also played for the Houston Texans and the Seattle Seahawks.
