Jadeveon Clowney reveals the key factor in his decision to sign with Tennessee Titans
Jadaveon Clowney was one of the most watched personnel moves of the NFL offseason. So when he settled on the Tennessee Titans, there was a quick recall to a time earlier in his career.
Clowney was reunited with a former coach who he worked with when he played for the Houston Texans, in Mike Vrabel.
“I know when I was with Vrabel in Houston, I was second-team All-Pro and three Pro Bowls, so I was saying in my head, I think I can do that with him in that system, and that system worked well,” Clowney said in a recent media interview.
The No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Clowney, who last played for the Seattle Seahawks, couldn’t land a mega free agent deal, and the pandemic caused problems with his travel to meet with teams.
Since 2016 according to Sportradar, only Aaron Donald and Chandler Jones have combined for more tackles for loss, forced fumbles and quarterback pressures than Clowney who has 60 tackles for loss, eight forced fumbles and 159 total pressures, the Associated Press reported.
He also ranks fourth for most tackles for loss over the past four seasons, trailing only Donald (77), Cameron Jordan and Chandler Jones (67).
