Jadeveon Clowney is going to be one of the most sought after defensive players on the free agent market, and already has a hunch where he wants to play next season and beyond. Moments after the Seattle Seahawks’ playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC divisional round, Clowney may have played his last game on the Seahawks… Unless the team makes it a priority to keep him.
The three-time Pro Bowl defensive end isn’t ruling out a return to Seattle, but made it clear he wants to play for a contender.
“I want to get that Super Bowl, by any means,” Clowney said, via NBC Sports Northwest. “That’s what I’m looking for. Who’s going to get me there? I’m not looking to get on no sorry team for no money. That ain’t gonna fly.
“I’m not going to fight through all that just to lose 16 games and go home with my check. I hate that. That ain’t what I’m doing. If I can’t do that – I’m not going to no team that can’t win.”
Pete Carroll believes that Clowney can make an impact Seattle, and he had encouraging words on him being back in Seattle.
