• Jadeveon Clowney used to wear the number 90 during the 2019 NFL season
  • Jarran Reed tweeted that he will be switching back to the number 90 after spending a year as 91
  • The jersey change request has caused much speculation that Jadeveon Clowney will no longer return to the Seahawks 

Another rumor of Jadeveon Clowney leaving the Seattle Seahawks has made rounds online care of Jarran Reed’s jersey number request. This comes at the time where Clowney is considered as one of the hottest free agents of the league.

In a deleted tweet, Reed shared that he will be taking back the number 90 in the coming season.

“To clarify all questions yes I am back in number 90,” Reed tweeted.

It’s interesting to note that Reed used to don the number 90 in his first few years with the squad. It was last year when Reed switched to 91 and gave 90 to Clowney when the star defensive end joined the Seahawks.

Now that rumors have surrounded Clowney leaving the team, this adds to the speculation that the three-time Pro-Bowler is certainly making his way out of Seattle. Several teams have now been interested in the services of Clowney and what he brings on the field. Squads like the Tennessee Titans and the Cleveland Browns have been among the teams rumored to sign Clowney.

While Reed’s announcement had some heads turning, Seahawks general manager John Schneider clarified the situation. Per 710 ESPN Seattle, Schneider mentioned that no jersey change has been formalized yet.

"Yeah, I think you're buying into it, because I don't remember approving that yet," Schneider said by way of CBS Sports. "I don't know where that came from, but yesterday morning… something was going on," Schneider added.

The Seattle Seahawks are coming off a strong 2019 campaign as they finished with an 11-5 win-loss record. Their performance was good enough for a second-place finish in the NFC West division behind the San Francisco 49ers.

After spending several seasons with the Houston Texans, Clowney was traded to the Seahawks in exchange for Jacob Martin, Barkevious Mingo and a future draft pick. In Clowney’s season with Seattle, he played 13 games and had 31 combined solo and assisted tackles. He had some solid outings throughout the year including five tackles in the Seahawks’ NFC Wild Card game victory against the Philadelphia Eagles.

While the season has yet to start, the question still remains where Clowney will end up in the upcoming year.
