The 29-year-old was asked as a defender if offensive situations matter in deciding where he signs and he said it does in certain situations, including this season.
“It happened this year. It happened this year. Because I told them that I kept thinking about where my boy Deshawn was going. it was like wherever you go I know you will keep us off the field, you scored a lot of points,” Clooney said. “I just wanted to go play with him and see what I can do with him again.”
