The Cleveland Browns agreed to the terms and signed a contract with veteran-possessor Jadeveon Clowns for an annual contract with a maximum value of $ 11 million, according to a league source.
Jadeveon Clowney re-signs with Brown
“Follow it back,” Clowns wrote on Instagram with a photo of him in Browns uniform.
Athletically gifted a three-time Pro Bowl qualifier with Houston’s Texans, Clowns last season had a strong season for the Browns, working in tandem with teammate who was first in the overall draft selection Miles Garrett.
The clowns played in 14 games and recorded 37 saves, nine sacks and 19 defenders. He was in no hurry to do what many sources in the league had predicted for the entire offseason: he returned to the Browns on a short-term deal.
The 29-year-old Clown played last season on a one-year contract with Cleveland. In 2020, he played for the Tennessee Titans on a $ 15 million annual deal, but injuries disrupted his season.
Clowns is a proven pass rasher and running stopper. Before joining the Titans, he played for the Seattle Seahawks after former coach and general manager Bill O’Brien traded him for the NFC West franchise. With the Seahawks he started 11 of 13 games played and 71% of defensive shots. That season he had three bags and seven selections. Last season for the Browns, he played 74% of defensive shots.
With the Texans, the former No. 1 overall scorer from South Carolina scored 18½ bags in 2017 and 2018 before joining the Seahawks.
Over his career Clowns (6 feet 5, 255 pounds) has 41 sacks, 292 rebounds, 86 rebounds, 105 quarterback strikes, 12 forced strikes, seven touchdown recovers and one touchdown.
