Jadeveon Clowney entered NFL free agency this offseason with the expectation of receiving a multi-year contract that made him one of the highest-paid defensive players in the NFL. However, the former No. 1 pick remains in free agency, with no teams willing to pay the price he was asking for.

Of course, the Seattle Seahawks are open to bringing him back in 2020 after trading him prior to the 2019 season. But for them to retain him, the Seahawks would prefer to have him back on a one-year deal.

While being hampered by a core injury in 2019, Clowney finished with just three sacks and four forced fumbles in his lone campaign with the Seahawks. After a disappointing showing last season, teams are wary of shelling out an expensive contract for Clowney.

Given that there aren’t many teams with much cap space remaining, Clowney may have to settle for a one-year deal, regardless of where he signs. That would give him a chance to test free agency again in 2021. Taking all of that into account, let’s take a look at three teams who should pursue Clowney on a one-year deal.


  1. Clowney doesn’t fit the Bills culture. Plain and simple. He’s not worth what he will cost, he’s barely better than what they have now.

    • Agreed. Also, he’s playing for $$ not passion. If he was still valuable why does Seattle not want him?
