NEW ORLEANS (WAFB) - Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has finally found a team, despite a last ditch effort by the New Orleans Saints.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport the former South Carolina Gamecock will sign a 1-year deal with the Tennessee Titans worth more than $12 million.
ESPN’s Dianna Russini reported sources told the network Clowney is expected to return to the AFC South to join the Tennessee Titans, reuniting him with Mike Vrabel, who was with the Texans when Clowney was still in Houston.
Josina Anderson reported that it came down to familiarity for Clowney over economics.
Reports surfaced Thursday from NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero that the Saints were “sending an all-out blitz” to try to sign Clowney ahead of their Sept. 13 opener. Pelissero noted Clowney had “spoken multiple times to coach Sean Payton.”
Then, on Friday, there were reports that Clowney to New Orleans was a done deal, supposedly a one-year contract worth $10 million.
CBS Sports reported the Browns have also talked to Clowney and the Seahawks have been keeping tabs on him.
