Free agent edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney may wind up without a chair once the NFL music stops.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported that the former Seattle Seahawks standout has “balked” at a lucrative offer from the Cleveland Browns.

“I think they’ve been the most aggressive team with him financially,” Schefter said of the Browns, per ESPN’s Jake Trotter. “And I just think he has balked at going to Cleveland for whatever reason. I think he’s been hesitant to go, because if he wasn’t, he would’ve gone already because it’s the most money. It’s the richest offer on the table, and he hasn’t taken it.”

Upon hitting the open market, the former Texans starter was reportedly seeking north of $20 million per season on a long-term contract.

That asking price quickly dropped to around $17 million per year, but even so, Clowney’s market has apparently not been up to par, with the defensive end reportedly also turning down multiple offers from the Seahawks and Tennessee Titans.

At least one other team hasn’t valued him at much more than $10 million, with the Eagles — once a rumored destination — reportedly removing him from their wish list because of Clowney’s desired salary.
