If you’re an offensive guard in the National Football League, Jadeveon Clowney just gave you some extra motivation for the upcoming 2021-22 season.
In fact, the Cleveland Browns defensive end is salivating at the fact that he’ll be facing them a lot this season.
“We love that matchup,” Clowney said, via the Akron Beacon Journal. “We feel like they’re the unathletic guys. That guard position, they’re not real athletes down there. So they’re just physical and maulers. But we try to get in there and create those matchups for certain guys, and hopefully, we get some wins.
“You’ve got to think different on the interior. Everything happens very, very fast down there. Those guys are much bigger down there. So, yes, your whole mindset has got to change in how you attack the quarterback, how you attack the guys down there.”
The No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft signed a 1-year deal worth up to $8 million this past offseason with the Browns and is hoping that he can stay healthy this season.
Clowney, 28, had a stellar start to training camp but sat out a couple of weeks with what he described as “a strain.”
