Titans’ Jon Robinson Wants To See Jadeveon Clowney In Person Before Making A Move

Jadeveon Clowney remains a free agent.

The Browns, Titans, Raiders, Jets and Seahawks are among the teams that have been linked to Clowney in reports this offseason.

Titans general manager Jon Robinson told Paul Kuharsky on Tuesday night that he’s seen some of Clowney’s workout videos but he would want to see Clowney in person before making a move.

“What I’ve seen on Twitter, him rushing off the edge and hitting that bag,” Robinson said. “Anytime you are dealing with whatever the contract is going to command, you want to make sure that the player is healthy, that you are able to allow your doctors to see him, to look at it, to make sure everything is going to be good.”

Robinson went on to say that adding Clowney would give the defense “a lot of chess pieces” to use this season.

“You’ve got (Harold) Landry, you’ve got (Vic) Beasley, you’ve got Clowney — hypothetically, to your point — you’ve got Jeffery Simmons, you’ve got DaQuan (Jones), who’s got some power rush, you’ve got (Kamalei) Correa who goes 100 miles an hour, you’ve got a lot of different pieces that you can move around,” he told Kuharsky. “And you’ve got athleticism with Landry, with Beasley, with Correa, you can drop those guys into coverage and send David Long, Rashaan Evans, Jayon Brown or whoever it might be. It just gives you a lot of chess pieces in that game.”

Last month, Robinson told local reports that he hadn’t had recent conversations with Clowney.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported in May that the Browns made the richest offer, but they restructured Olivier Vernon’s deal on Tuesday, and are likely out of the running for Clowney

Free agents are still not allowed to take visits, so Robinson and Clowney will have some more waiting to do.
