The problem is he keeps reinforcing that narrative by holding out for more money and not showing up until the season starts.
I would argue that Clowney has lived up to the hype. He is every bit as disruptive in the backfield as Aaron Donald or Myles Garrett, but unlike those guys, he's not going to get 10 plus sacks. He's an average pass rusher. While he may not be a elite sack artist, teams have invested big money in those types of players in the past. Michael Bennett would be a prime example of that.
I honestly think if he resigned with Seattle and put up a season comparable to his 2019 season, he would've got a massive payday this season. Instead, he's sort of in purgatory because no one thinks he actually wants to play football. They think he just wants to get paid.
I agree 100 percent. Where do you think he will sign? I said the Ravens a few months ago, and I think I'm gonna stick with that. I highly doubt Seattle signs him at this point, but who knows, it could still happen.
