He’s still waiting.
The Titans — who need a top-quality edge rusher — remain frustrated by their”lack of engagement” with Clowney, Yahoo Sports’ Charles Robinson told ESPN102.5 The Game in Nashville on Thursday.
Clowney is running out of time — and options — before the start of the 2020season. Robinson said the suitors for the former No. 1 overall draft pick arethe Titans and Seattle Seahawks but that a deal could come together quicklywith either team, given the time crunch.
Seattle, where Clowney played in 2019, and Tennessee both would be looking topay him around $12 million per season, Robinson said. He reportedly turneddown an offer earlier this offseason that could have been as high as $18million from the Cleveland Browns.
Jon Robinson, speaking with interviewer Paul Kuharsky on a video conversationfor a charity in early July, said he was impressed with what he had viewed ofthe 2014 No. 1 overall pick on social media.
“What I’ve seen on Twitter, him rushing off the edge and hitting that bag,” hesaid, via PaulKuharsky.com. “Anytime you are dealing with whatever thecontract is going to command, you want to make sure that the player ishealthy, that you are able to allow your doctors to see him, to look at it, tomake sure everything is going to be good.”
Clowney has tallied 32 sacks in 75 career games. He also has a noteworthyinjury history, which includes microfracture surgery on his knee and coremuscle surgery after the 2019 season.
Clowney, 27, reportedly was seeking more than $20 million annually when he hitfree agency in mid-March. He played in 13 games for the Seahawks last season,registering three sacks, 31 tackles and 13 quarterback hits.
