Russell Wilson asks Jadeveon Clowney to return to Seahawks: ‘I need you homie’

Russell Wilson must be sleepless in Seattle awaiting Jadeveon Clowney’s free agency decision.

The Seahawks quarterback has pleaded for the three-time Pro Bowler to return to Seattle on more than one occasion, most recently on Thursday while answering fans’ questions on his Instagram page. One such question asked if he could “talk some sense” into Clowney.

His response was equal parts endearing and hilarious:

“Clowney come back. If you are listening bro. We’ve got another Super Bowl to win, man. We need you. We need you to come back Clowney. Clowney, Clowney if you can hear me, please come back, bro. I need you homie.”

Clowney, a former No. 1 overall pick, surely has several options and suitors as he weighs his free agency options. Perhaps he could be swayed to return to the Seahawks if Wilson sang his plea to the tune of “Baby Come Back” by Player.

Clowney come back. If you are listening /
We’ve got another Super Bowl to win man /

We need you back. Clowney if you can hear me /
Please come back bro. I need you homie /

Clowney spent one season in Seattle after getting traded by the Texans in late August. He had a decent campaign in 2019, totaling 31 tackles (seven for loss), three sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and an interception returned for touchdown. The Seahawks are thought to be in the running for Clowney’s services with an offer in the $13-15 million range, though it’s thought he is looking for a more lucrative deal.

There’s no telling what Clowney’s decision might be, but Wilson’s impassioned call has to be worth something.
