BALTIMORE — As the pursuit of free-agent defensive end Jadeveon Clowney nears the start of the regular season, the Ravens have reportedly emerged as contenders.
ESPN reported Saturday that while the New Orleans Saints and Tennessee Titans have made “sizable offers” to the three-time Pro Bowl selection, the Ravens “almost got something done” a couple of weeks ago and should not be discounted.
Asked Saturday about the reports linking Clowney to the Ravens, coach John Harbaugh declined to detail the team’s level of interest. But he praised the former No. 1 overall draft pick.
“I think anybody would have an interest in a player of that caliber, certainly,” Harbaugh said in a video conference call. “Anybody across the league would, you know? He’s a great player. He’s, from all accounts, a good, hardworking guy, so it just depends on people’s situations, roster situations and cap situations to determine all those kind of things.”
