With so many free agents being picked up in two days, there aren't many big names left on the market besides Jadeveon Clowney.

Clowney reportedly hasn't found the market he was expecting as one of the top edge defenders in the NFL, and now we know why.

$20 million is a pretty penny in the NFL. Most teams won't reach for that mark to grab a pass-rusher, especially with many of the open slots being filled by slightly cheaper options through franchise tags. Clowney doesn't just want top market dollar -- he wants to reset the market.

While he is a great player, teams would rather save their money than throw down $5 million more than what a tag offers, and it's tough to blame them for that flaw.

Last season, Clowney started just 11 games, but he still had 31 combined tackles, 13 QB hits and 3.0 sacks with the Seattle Seahawks. Those were career lows for him across the board, despite the occasional dominance he showed.

The Seahawks are probably the best offer Clowney will find on the market, but likely not at that mark.
