CLEVELAND – As the Browns seek to make changes to the list after a disappointing 8-9 campaign, one of their priorities this offseason has been to strengthen the defensive line, both by adding new faces and potentially preserving the old one.
Apparently, the latter they achieved.
According to numerous media reports, the Browns have agreed with free agent Jadeveon Clown about a new deal that will keep him on the team. Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com (who is also a member of 3News) was the first to break historyadding that the contract is for one year and can cost up to $ 11 million including incentives.
Former No. 1 in the 2014 draft, Clowns in eight NFL seasons received 41 career aversions and made three Pro Bowls while working with Houston Texas. After brief and less successful appearances with the Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans, he agreed to a one-year contract with Cleveland in 2021 and returned to form with nine sacks, 11 rebounds and two forced moves, despite missing three games.
The clown was a key member in the improved defense, but some wondered if Brownie would be reluctant to bring back the 29-year-old due to potential financial constraints. However, interest from both sides seems to have grown in recent months, especially after the club acquired defender and former Clown teammate Deschana Watson of Houston.
Clown’s return also helps meet an urgent need, as the line of defense is seen as a weak point (outside of Miles Gareth) and Malik McDowell’s career is at stake after his arrest near a Florida school. To add depth, Cleveland signed Taven Brian and Chase Vinovich to a free agency and selected players such as Alex Wright and Perion Winfrey.
If the details of Clown’s salary in 2022 are accurate, it seems he could get a raise The base cost for 2021 is $ 8 million. The exact terms of the contract are not disclosed.
