A source close to Jadeveon Clowney says he’s been mulling offers from Titans and Saints since Friday and Ravens a wild card - they made a serious push a few weeks ago. Seahawks not out of it but more monitoring.— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) September 5, 2020
Fowler noted that the Ravens had made a serious push for Clowney a few weeks ago. Last week, Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network reported the Ravens may be “in the lead” for Clowney on the NFL Draft Insiders Podcast.
Currently, the Ravens have $16.6 million in available cap space. Clowney has been rumored to be seeking a contract worth $17-18 million per year, so the Ravens may have to free up some additional cap space to sign him. The Titans have plenty of room to sign Clowney ($21.7 million), while the Saints would definitely have to make additional moves ($6.9 million).
When asked about Clowney, head coach John Harbaugh said, “I think anybody would have an interest in a player of that caliber certainly.”

Clowney would join an already improved pass rush in Baltimore. Calais Campbell and Derek Wolfe joined the defensive line this offseason, and Matt Judon is returning after a 9.5-sack season.
