The Cleveland Browns officially signed Jadeveon Clowney on Wednesday, hoping an improved pass rush will help them contend for a championship.

The new partnership - and a chance to play opposite star edge rusher Myles Garrett - may be just as beneficial for Clowney.

"I've been getting double-teamed an awful lot in this league, in my career, and I'm looking forward to playing with somebody dominant on the opposite side - like a Myles Garrett - who can draw double teams. Maybe I can go one-on-one more," Clowney said with a laugh at his introductory press conference.

Clowney has compiled 32 career sacks since the Houston Texans selected him first overall in the 2014 draft. But 29 of them came during his five-year stint with the Texans, and he has just three over his last two seasons.

After a meniscus injury limited him to just eight games with the Tennessee Titans last season, the 28-year-old is eager to show he can still be a difference-maker.

"I feel great now. I'm looking forward to this season, to prove to guys that I'm back healthy and I still can dominate in this league," he said. "That's what I'm here to prove this year."
