Jadeveon Clowney has already met once with the Cleveland Browns this offseason, and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that he will meet with them again on Wednesday.

Browns Jadeveon Clowney Meeting

The second meeting was previously planned for Monday, but the meeting was rescheduled due to a travel issue. Rapoport adds that nothing is imminent between the two sides at the moment but that the two sides share “mutual interest.”

Clowney was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, and he has struggled to live up to expectations as a pro. He’s a solid pass rusher — he’s had at least 9.0 sacks in two seasons — but he’s never turned into the star that people expected. He’s coming off arguably his worst season as a pro with the Titans last season, finishing with zero sacks and 19 tackles in eight games with the Titans. He played out of position as an outside linebacker, but he still finished as the No. 19 edge defender according to Pro Football Focus. PFF also gave him a top-20 grade at the position in 2019, 2018, and 2016, so he would be a nice addition for a Browns’ squad that 19th in adjusted sack rate last year.

Despite their mediocre pass rush, the Browns still managed to post an 11-5 record and win a Wild Card matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2020.

There is plenty of optimism surrounding the team heading into next season, and they’re currently listed at +2000 to win the Super Bowl on FanDuel Sportsbook.
