CLEVELAND – As he considered his next stop in the NFL, Jadeveon Clowney said there was something about the Browns that made them very appealing.
“They're winning,” he said.
They are now, and Clowney wants to help them win it all.
The dynamic free agent defensive end signed a one-year, $10 million contract with Cleveland on Wednesday, joining All-Pro end Myles Garrett on the defensive line of a rising team looking to go even deeper in the playoffs in the 2021 season.
Clowney turned down a multiyear offer from the Browns last year (he said his former agent didn't want him to visit them), opting instead to sign for one season with Tennessee.
Things didn't go as he hoped with the Titans as Clowney was slowed by a knee injury that stopped him after eight games.
He's healthy following surgery, motivated and intent on showing he can still affect a game.
“I can still dominate this league," the 28-year-old Clowney said. “I know that.”
