Two days ago, Seahawks defensive tackle Jarran Reed posted on Twitter that he was taking his old #90 back. The SAME #90 that Jadeveon Clowney wore last season. The speculation from that announcement was that Seattle was out of the running for the free agent and Clowney wouldn’t be back this season.
General Manager John Schneider said Thursday as a guest on ESPN Radio in Seattle that he didn’t remember approving a number switch for Reed. Now, Reed has deleted his entire Twitter account, so there’s no record of it…other than what we grabbed while it was up…
Schneider explained that the door is still open to negotiate with Clowney and Seattle has visited with he and his agent several times. In the meantime, the team had to move forward with planning for this season. That meant signing free agent defensive ends Bruce Irvin and Benson Mayowa and drafting Alton Robinson and Darrell Taylor.
So, the wait continues to see who will be wearing #90 this season. If it’s not Clowney, it apparently will be Reed.
