Folks, it feels like things are finally coming down to the wire for Jadeveon Clowney. While rumors have been flying all over the place, the latest team to draw significant buzz are the Cleveland Browns.

With Cleveland reportedly in a good spot to land the superstar defensive lineman, it's time to speed things up and put the pen to paper. While the Browns don't want to rush Clowney into a decision, getting things done in the next two days is imperative.

Per Jeremy Fowler, the Browns have been the closest of any team to reel Clowney in. While he didn't end up agreeing to a contract, it's clear he was pushed to the edge and almost did so.

The longer things go on for Clowney, the more likely it is for another team to try and woo him away from the AFC North franchise. Although the Seahawks haven't been able to present him with the kind of money he wants, it sure doesn't help Cleveland knowing Russell Wilson is actively trying to get him back in Seattle.

Ugh. When one of the best quarterbacks in the game is shooting his shot like this, it certainly won't make Browns' fans happy. The front office must take this as a sign: speed things up and try to get Clowney to sign with the team ASAP.
