We need you, bro. Clowney, Clowney if you can hear me, please come back, bro. And we want to continue to have those discussions and back-and-forths in hopes of reaching some kind of long-term agreement.
Titans general manager Jon Robinson said Wednesday that the team has been in touch with Clowney's agents. "But still, at the same time, I know that he wants to be a part of this football team and I thought it was good that they communicated back he does want to be here, and he does want to keep working on this thing. He brought so many just havoc plays to the field".
The Browns have been monitoring the situation with Clowney, a source told cleveland.com, but haven't wanted to pay the $20 million a year he was seeking.
Clowney spent last season with the Seahawks after being traded from the Houston Texans and though he only had three sacks - his lowest total since an injury-hit rookie year - the defensive end forced four fumbles and had two touchdowns via a fumble return and an interception.
In what might have been the only real piece of news Friday on Clowney, John Clayton of 710 ESPN Seattle - who also serves as a sideline reporter on the team's official broadcasts - reported that any interest by the New York Jets might be overblown. League sources told Dianna Russini of ESPN Clowney is now looking for $17 or $18 million per year.
With the move, Henry is officially under contract for the 2020 season. The differing assessments of what is Clowney's market value remains the big sticking point, and the Seahawks appear not wanting to budge while Clowney appears willing to wait.
