The Cleveland Browns dismissed Jadeveon Clowney from Friday’s practice. The Browns also ruled Clowney out Sunday against the Steelers for the team’s final campaign of the season. The Browns came to the decision shortly after Clowney’s interview with cleveland.com about his usage this past season.

In the interview, Clowney expressed his grievances with the coaches and how they used him compared to teammate Myles Garrett. He even went as far as saying the Browns purposely put Garrett on inferior linemen because they care more about him getting to the Hall of Fame over winning games. And because of that, among other gripes, he is “95% sure” he’s not coming back to the Browns next season.

The Browns, of course, have taken exception to the comments made by Clowney. Garrett, when asked about Clowney’s comments, said he doesn’t take any of it personally. He expressed that he hopes Clowney can find a team where he feels appreciated and stated the Browns “want volunteers, not hostages”.

Rookie defensive end Alex Wright also chimed in, stating “I’m going to still take the positive things that he taught me from him and whatnot, but just learn from the negative things also.” Head Coach Kevin Stefanski was also asked about the comments and decisions made by the team. Stefanski said he did talk to Clowney, but he wouldn’t share the details of the conversation.
