Clowney might sign with Browns

Sorry I didn’t post the tweet.

 

 

Looks like the waiting game could be over with Clowney.  If Ballard is truly interested he's going to have to get on the phone fast or it's most likely over.

Dude was always overrated as a pass rusher. Good run stuff but way to inconsistent as a pass rusher. Browns like the Titans will regret signing him soon.

I would gender agree with this, but it all depends on how much he signs for.

Well at least for the Browns all he needs to do is help Myles Garrett, and be a good second, instead of being the main guy

Until his knees or other injuries eventually take a toll on him.

Whenever I see a tweet or some other report talking about our “interest” in some player it makes me wonder...   and think. 
 

1.   We typically don’t leak. 
 

2.   So who’s is leaking our interest?

 

3.   Either an agent trying to drive up interest...   (maybe Clowney’s agent).  Or...

 

4.   Another team trying to drive up interest.  (Like the Eagles with Wentz).

I doubt we sign him but i do think he would be an upgrade here

 

Our DE room is Muhammad, Banogu and Turay

 

We need more than that

You can maybe add Lewis and possibly even Rochelle.   Both can play DE as well as DT.

You are most likely right about not signing him.  But it is interesting that we are keeping tabs on him.  Not many here want him but Ballard seems to be still interested even after having Houston on the team for two years.  He might have them valued closely for all we know.  That said I think the Browns will be willing to pay more than Ballard.  That we can pretty much count on.  No doubt the Browns think they can win it this year and they view Clowney as another playmaker they are willing to add.  Another interesting development for sure.

Even at Houston's age, Houston is a better pass rusher. I hope we bring Houston back for 1 year.

At Houston's age there is also a good chance he won't be able to achieve his numbers from last year.  I would rather sign Clowney given the choice.  I think there is a good chance Houston signs elsewhere too.  You notice no players are clamoring for his return like they were for TY and Rhodes.  It might come down to plan C for Ballard.

I'm telling you right now that's only because they are looking at the Steelers oline and salivating at the prospects of just beating them, but that's AFC Central football. Otherwise, pretty garbage signing unless he comes cheap.

I think this is a good signing for the Browns.  Their D-line is quite good.  

I'm not sure I wanted him for the Colts as I don't like him as a person.

You don't like him as a person?

A lot of people seem to say that about him.  Hes never been in trouble for behavior, he did get a one game suspension for a hit I think. 

 

Hes not exactly the most likable personality but I dont need that from a defensive end.  I would have been glad to see him come here, considering our current DE situation.  I think hes better than Turay, Muhammad and Banagu.  There is no one on the roster that is hands down better than him

How quickly fans forget that Ballard said..."The locker room is watching". 

What about it?  JC has not been a locker room problem to my knowlegle

 

Tbh Wentz upset his own locker room last year more than Clowney ever has

I'm talking about aggressively going after FA's not being re-signed by other teams. Clowney has been available to sign more than once in his career. Why has he not stuck?

The reason is injuries.  I would not have expected more than a one year if we made an offer.

 

The deal he got with the Browns isn't cheap but it's not outrageous either.  Close to what Houston got last year

 

To be fair JC has not had a good year since 2018, he is still only 28 as well.

Exactly. That is not the message I want the Colts GM to send to the locker room.....that we overpay players who haven't lived up to their contracts elsewhere.

His name got him 10 million, his production gets him the NFL minimum..

 

His knee injury history (and type) takes him completely out of the discussion for me, period.

 

Sep 7, 2014  Knee Meniscus Tear, Clowney underwent surgery for a torn lateral meniscus in his knee.

Nov 23, 2014 Knee Meniscus Tear, Clowney missed the final 5 games of the season dealing with complications from his September surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee.

 

Dec 8, 2014  Knee repair,  Clowney had knee microfracture surgery to regrow cartilage (this is always a big red flag to me).

 

Jan 23, 2017 Knee Strain Grade 1, Clowney underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee after the 2016 season.

 

Jan 8, 2018 Knee Strain Grade 1 , Clowney underwent arthroscopic knee surgery shortly after the 2017 season ended.

 

Dec 2, 2020 Knee Meniscus Repair , Clowney underwent meniscus knee surgery ending his 2020 season.

you mean like Wentz lol.  JC did live up to his contract in 17-18, then had some down years similar to our QB

    • He had some flashes, but also had Drew Lock as his QB, so that hasn't helped. He was waived, but I highly doubt we'll get him. We'll probably put a claim in for him, but another team higher on the waiver priority list will probably land him.
    • 40 yard times with pass rushers is almost irrelevant. Rarely will they ever be running more than 10 yards, except in pursuit. The 10 yard split is so much more important, because that shows the short distance speed and explosion needed on every snap.
    • Brandon Graham has somewhat underwhelmed in Philly and only has 60 career sacks over 11 years. That's only an average of 5 1/2 sacks per season.    I'm hoping we get more production out of Paye personally. 
    • Philip Rivers must have gotten Nate Kaeding flashbacks. He missed critical kicks in the 2006 divisional round vs the Patriots, and critical kicks in the 2009 divisional round vs the Jets, thus leading to the Colts getting a home AFCCG in 2006 and a better matchup vs the Jets in 2009 in the home AFCCG, both times leading to a SB berth. Rivers and the Chargers were plagued with kicking issues till Michael Badgley had a small good run but eventually he started having a bad run too.   Just goes to show you how amazing AV's career was w.r.t longevity and ability to bounce back after bad stretches within the same year. Eventually there was no comeback to be found, thanks to father time.
    • I like the move.  What will be interesting to see is if a full year of NFL off season conditioning and workouts actually help Blankenship get stronger and improve his distance.
