Jadeveon Clowney came into the offseason as one of the most hyped free-agent talents available. Now weeks after most of the top players were signed, Clowney remains a free agent, and he might be available for a while given some concerns around the NFL.
According to Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline, many around the NFL are fearful of Clowney’s work ethic and drive once he lands a new contract. The star edge rusher desired a market-setting contract when the offseason began, but even with his price now dropping, people are concerned he’ll stop working hard once he lands a sizable contract.
“There are concerns, even from people close to Clowney, that once he signs a huge contract. He may not play hard. He may just get this one contract with all the guarantees and that’s it. Which is a concern of a lot of people,” Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline said, via SeahawksDraftBlog.com.
