The former Seattle Seahawks has faced a lot of injuries in his NFL career and it is why none of the clubs will offer him a bigger trade deal. Here are more details on Jadeveon Clowney getting a trade deal from Philadelphia Eagles and the impact of his career injuries on the offer.
Eagles won’t pay much to Jadeveon Clowney
Jadeveon Clowney after entering the free agency this year, asked for $20 million per season deal but none of the NFL team agreed to it. Clowney then reduced his market price to $17 million per year, yet none of the teams is seriously interested after he allegedly turned down offers from the Seattle Seahawks, Cleveland Browns, and Tennessee Titans.
Philadelphia Eagles are also not that much interested in Jadeveon Clowney unless he agrees to a one year deal at a very low price. The Eagles are not willing to offer Clowney more than $10 million, and even after that, they should be doing the deal. Jaedeveon Clowney has a big history of injuries and it would be stupid of Philadelphia to bring in such players.
Jadeveon Clowney Career and Injury History
Jadeveon Clowney and injuries have been always together since the start of his career, where he only played four games in his rookie year due to a torn meniscus. The next year he ended his season in between due to a Lisfranc injury which took months to heal.
The only year where Clowney has played all 16 games was in 2017 with the Houston Texans. Even though he has been three times a Pro-Bowler, he has always been bugged by some sort of injuries. It has become more difficult for Jadeveon Clowney to prove himself after the COVID-19 restrictions and things are not going that well for the 6’5″ defensive end.
