NASHVILLE – Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney remains a free agent.
So, Clowney remains a popular topic any time Titans Coach Mike Vrabel or General Manager Jon Robinson do interviews.
Case in point: On at least two separate occasions this week, Vrabel found himself answering questions about the former Seahawks and Texans pass rusher.
During a Zoom conference call with reporters on Wednesday, Vrabel kept his answer short, saying only: "I have not talked to JD."
While appearing on SIRIUSXM NFL Radio, Vrabel was again asked about Clowney, his former pupil when he worked – and Clowney played -- with the Texans.
"I have not talked to JD personally," Vrabel said. "I would say that Jon and I continue to evaluate the roster and the available free agents.
"As of now I would say that nothing is off the table. But nothing is certainly on the table either – he is not on our team."
Clowney played his first five NFL seasons with the Texans before being traded to Seattle prior to the 2019 season.
Clowney, 27, suffered a core muscle injury during the 2019 season, and he had surgery earlier this offseason.
Clowney has 32 sacks in six NFL seasons, but he had just three sacks in 13 games last season. He added 1.5 sacks in Seattle's two playoff games.
During an interview with Mark Berman of FOX 26 Houston earlier this month, Clowney said he's been working out and "waiting on the right opportunity."
Clowney also said he has multiple offers.
"I just want to let people know I am ready," he said. "I am ready to go whenever the time comes. And whoever I sign with is going to get the best version of me."
