- Mary Kay Cabot confirms that Clayborn is signing a two-year, $6 million deal and can earn another $1 million through incentives.
Clayborn, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2011. Tampa Bay declined to exercise his fifth-year option and Clayborn signed with the Falcons on a one-year deal in 2015.
Clayborn re-signed with the Falcons on a two-year, $9 million contract before signing a two-year, $12 million contract with the Patriots in 2018.
New England cut him loose in March of last year and he returned to Atlanta on a one-year, $4 million contract. He was testing the market as an unrestricted free agent.
In 2019, Clayborn appeared in 15 games and recorded 18 total tackles, four tackles for loss, four sacks, and two forced fumbles. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 37 overall edge defender out of 107 qualifying players.
