The Tennessee Titans have been working on free agent Jadeveon Clowney for weeks, and reports are coming out that he’s unlikely returning to Seattle.
We’ve been waiting for weeks for Jadeveon Clowney to make his decision in free agency. Of course, with everything shutting down, it makes the process more difficult for him and the Tennessee Titans, who are working hard to bring him to Nashville.
Meanwhile, the Titans haven’t stopped working on signing other free agents while they wait on Clowney’s decision. As we wait on Clowney, I listed three players that the Titans should sign if they don’t get Clowney, or if he holds out for too long.
We’ve seen reports where the Titans appeared in Clowney’s top-three teams, then the Jets eliminated themselves, Clowney lowered his asking price, and now another report has come out that it’s “unlikely” that Clowney will return to Seattle.
That report comes from NFL.com’s Mike Garafolo, who was a guest on Sports Radio KJR in Seattle on Tuesday.
Well, if the top three teams were the Seahawks, Jets, and Titans, and the Jets eliminated themselves, and it’s unlikely that Clowney returns to Seattle, then that leaves the Titans as his only option.
If that’s the case, then the tables have turned, and the Titans hold the upper hand in the negotiations. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the Seahawks are out of the running, but if he doesn’t want to return to Seattle, then they might as well be.
Although Garafolo said it’s unlikely that Clowney is back in Seattle for the 2020 season, he also said don’t count him out and “never say never.”
Last Wednesday, Titans general manager Jon Robinson said on a conference call that he had been in contact with defensive back Logan Ryan along with Clowney.
This doesn’t mean a deal is coming, but the fact that Robinson and Clowney have been in contact and have been having conversations is a good thing if you want to see Clowney in two-tone blue this fall.
If another team doesn’t jump into the mix and throw the offer that Clowney was initially looking for before he dropped his asking price, then Clowney could very well be the Titans’ to lose.
