- Jadeveon Clowney was traded to the Seattle Seahawks by the Houston Texans for a third-round draft pick and two defensive players.
- The Indianapolis Colts have the second shortest odds to sign Jadeveon Clowney this offseason.
- The Seahawks have not closed the door on bringing back Clowney this season.
SEATTLE — Now that the 2020 NFL Draft has concluded, teams are now finalizing deals with undrafted rookies to fill out the rest of their rosters for training camp and the preseason when the coronavirus bans have been lifted by states.
If a team is still looking for help on their defensive line post-draft, they won’t have to look far to add one of the most disruptive lineman to their franchise as Jadeveon Clowney is one of the top free agents remaining on the market.
The former No. 1 overall pick was traded by the Houston Texans to the Seattle Seahawks last season for a third-round pick, defensive lineman Barkevious Mingo, and linebacker Jacob Martin. In his lone season for the Seahawks, Clowney recorded 31 tackles including seven for a loss, three sacks, and one interception that was returned for a touchdown.
Clowney is in the prime of his career and could be the missing link for many teams looking to improve on the defensive side of the ball. Being that Clowney is among the biggest names still on the free-agent market, BetOnline has a prop where bettors can bet on what team Clowney will sign with this offseason.
Odds For Team That Jadeveon Clowney To Sign With:
- Seattle Seahawks +150
- Indianapolis Colts +200
- Tennessee Titans +400
- New York Giants +500
- Philadelphia Eagles +600
- Miami Dolphins +900
- Baltimore Ravens +1400
Winner: Indianapolis Colts (+200). The Colts will likely be the team that signs Clowney and brings him back to the AFC South division where he played the first five seasons of his career. The Colts are in a win-now mode after acquiring Phillip Rivers in free agency this offseason.
Adding Clowney to an already deep defensive line would easily make the Colts favorites to win their division and bolster their Super Bowl odds.
Clowney would be able to get set on the defensive line with Justin Houston on the opposite side of him. That duo on the edges would give teams nightmare and open up even more lanes for All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard to run free.
The Colts have the fifth-most cap space in the NFL and paying Clowney what he wants won’t be a problem for the Colts which is another reason why +200 odds on the Colts should be taken with confidence.
Although Seattle has the shortest odds it seems if they wanted to bring Clowney back they would have already or at least placed a tender on him to receive a compensatory NFL draft pick when he signs with another team. However, Seattle may have already moved on as Clowney’s No. 90 jersey is back with the player he bought it from a year ago.
In his six-year career, Clowney has compiled 236 total tackles, 32 sacks, eight fumble recoveries, and one interception. That type of output is hard to find from an edge rusher but Clowney has proven he is one of the better players at his position.
Nonetheless, Clowney will be on a team this upcoming season but we’ll have to wait and see where he signs. Despite the odds, the writing on the walls shows Clowney likely won’t be a Seahawk.
