Jadeveon Clowney is a very solid pass rusher, do not get me wrong, but I have heard from numerous people that teams are not willing to give him tons of money without being able to check his medicals with their team doctors.
There was a report that came out yesterday that the Dolphins were willing to pay 17 million dollars per year, and there are reports that Clowney wants 20 million per year, but without teams being able to perform physicals on players it makes you wonder if that is what is slowing down the Clowney signing.
Let’s review some of the injuries in Clowney’s past.
2013 College Season (Junior Year): In the season-opener against North Carolina, weakened by gastroenteritis, Clowney appeared “tired” and only registered three tackles. He played through many minor injuries that year.
2014 Season: Clowney made his regular season debut on September 7 against the Washington Redskins, making one tackle for a loss but left the game in the second quarter due to a knee injury. It was later revealed that Clowney had a torn meniscus. He underwent surgery to repair the meniscus on September 8, and recovery time required 4 to 6 weeks. Clowney was placed on injured reserve to undergo further surgery on his knee on December 4, ending his rookie season with seven tackles in four games. It was eventually revealed that Clowney had microfracture surgery.
2019 Season: Pete Carroll shared that Clowney’s injury is sports hernia related which caused him to miss several games. Clowney had to undergo surgery at the end of the year to repair his core injury. Also he was ruled out of a game with a hip injury.
Those are his major injuries, but if you look at his stats, he has missed games almost every year due to injuries. In 2014 he played in 4/16 games. In 2015, he played in 13 of 16 games, and did not play in the postseason due to injuries.
In 2016, he played in 14/14 games missing two games, while in 2017 is the only year he played in every game including two playoff games. In 2018, he missed one game, and in 2019 last year for the Seahawks he played in 13 games, missing three.
Here is a full list of his injuries according to Sports Injury Predictor.
|Sep 9, 2018||NFL||Back Lower Lumbar Sprain/Pull Unspecified Grade 1||Clowney missed Week 2 with an unspecified back injury.|
|Jan 8, 2018||NFL||Knee Strain Grade 1||Clowney underwent arthroscopic knee surgery shortly after the 2017 season ended.|

|Nov 1, 2015||NFL||Back Lower Lumbar Sprain|
|Oct 8, 2015||NFL||Pedal Ankle Sprain Grade 2|
|Nov 23, 2014||NFL||Knee Meniscus Tear||Clowney missed the final 5 games of the season dealing with complications from his September surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee. He had microfracture surgery in December.|
|Sep 7, 2014||NFL||Knee Meniscus Tear||Clowney underwent surgery for a torn lateral meniscus in his knee.|
|Aug 14, 2014||NFL||Head Cranial Concussion Grade 1||Clowney missed about a week of training camp with a concussion.|
|Jun 3, 2014||Non-NFL||Inguinal Groin Sports Hernia||Clowney played through a sports hernia in his final season at South Carolina and underwent surgery in June 2014.|
This site does not even have his 2019 injuries and get this, according to their site, Clowney has a 55.5 percent chance of getting hurt in 2020. That is pretty wild, because he is constantly dealing with injuries. Why would you pay a guy like 20 million that will likely end up hurt in 2020?
