Jadeveon Clowney looking forward to playing opposite Myles Garrett: 'Maybe I can go 1-on-1 more'
Coming off arguably the most disappointing season of his NFL career, Jadeveon Clowney is looking forward to a big bounce-back season in Cleveland.
The chances of that happening appear to be far more than simple wishful thinking, too, as Clowney projects to play opposite of Myles Garrett on the Browns defensive line next season.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Browns have been after Clowney for some time. After several visits this offseason, the two sides were able to agree to a one-year, $10 million contract.

After the deal was complete, Clowney was eager to reveal the interest was mutual as teaming up with Garrett should provide the South Carolina native plenty of one-on-one opportunities in the fall.
