There’s some conflicting information regarding Jadeveon Clowney’s free agency.

On Saturday afternoon, ESPN’s Diana Russini reported that Clowney was expected to sign with the Tennessee Titans after being pursued by several teams including the Saints.


Free-agent defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is expected to sign with the Tennessee Titans, sources told ESPN’s Dianna Russini.

Clowney would reunite with Titans head coach Mike Vrabel, who served as his position coach and defensive coordinator when the two were with the Houston Texans.

The seventh-year veteran had his best season in 2017, when he played in Vrabel’s scheme for the Texans. Clowney posted career highs in sacks (9.5), tackles for a loss (21) and QB hits (21) that season.

In addition to Vrabel, Clowney played for Titans outside linebackers coach Shane Bowen in Houston. Titans defensive backs coach Anthony Midget held the same title on the Texans staff that coached Clowney.

The Saints, the other main suitor, made a very strong case for Clowney, as well, sources say.

Despite ESPN’s report, NFL insider Josina Anderson says she directly spoke with Clowney and he told her he still hadn’t made his decision yet.

Update: Diana Russini is now saying Clowney has told the Titans he’s signing with them.

Update #2 Clowney told Josina Anderson he told the Titans of his decision late into the night.
