Clowney “wouldn’t mind ending up” with the Dallas Cowboys or New Orleans Saints. A run at Super Bowl LV is reportedly important to Clowney, who is willing to take a short term deal with a playoff team. “If he can get a decent one-year deal from a team that was in the playoffs, a team that he could help take to the next level…I’m told he would be very happy to do that,” says Pauline.
The Saints have $8.8 million in available salary-cap space, and the Cowboys have $11.3 million in available salary-cap space.
ESPN’s Dianna Russini says Clowney is seeking a deal in the $17 million to $18 million range.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk says the Seattle Seahawks are willing to offer $15 million on a one-year contract and that the Cleveland Browns could offer $18 million on a one-year contract.
Clowney has struggled with injuries during his career and underwent core-muscle surgery earlier this offseason. He’s only started in all 16 games during one season in his career.
