Titans Gave Jadeveon Clowney No-Tag Clause


According to Mike Florio, Titans DE Jadeveon Clowney secured an agreement from Tennessee not to use the franchise tag on him at the conclusion of his deal.

Clowney just signed with the Titans on a one-year deal worth up to $15 million after waiting nearly the entire offseason. 

This makes sense for Clowney, who did not find teams willing to meet his asking price in free agency this past year and will look to try to cash in again in 2021. 

Clowney also secured a no-tag agreement from the Seahawks last year after being traded from the Texans. 

Clowney, 27, is a former No. 1 overall pick of the Texans back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $22.272 million contract when the Texans picked up his fifth-year option which paid him $12.306 million for the 2018 season. 

Houston franchised Clowney last year before trading him to the Seahawks at the start of the regular season. 

In 2019, Clowney appeared in 13 games for the Seahawks and recorded 31 tackles, three sacks, an interception, two defensive touchdowns, four forced fumbles, two recoveries, and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 20 edge rusher out of 108 qualifying players.

We had him featured in our Top 100 Available 2020 Free Agents list.
