The team is still hoping to bring him back, but per a new report, they may be on the outside looking in. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle says the Seahawks are running in third right now.
The Tennessee Titans have been in on Clowney for much of the offseason. The team hasn’t been shy about their pursuit of him, and recently confirmed that an offer has been made.
The New Orleans Saints are a relative newcomer in the Clowney race. Per reports, he recently met with head coach Sean Payton in Houston. The team is said to be “all-in” on adding the talented pass rusher. Wilson reports that the Titans and Saints are the main threats to land him.
Veteran pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney is still weighing the Titans and Saints’ contract offers as of late Saturday afternoon with the Seahawks ranked third among his choices currently, per league sources.
