An unnamed source told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that the team is working to arrange another visit with Clowney as soon as Monday.
If Clowney comes for a second visit, there is a good chance he signs with the Browns.
The Browns have already hosted Clowney on March 24.
I’m told the #Browns are working to arrange another visit with free agent edge-rusher Jadeveon Clowney for Monday, at this time, per source.

One of the top offseason priorities for Browns general manager Andrew Berry and the front office is finding an edge rusher to pair opposite All-Pro defensive end Myles Garrett.
The Browns already signed Takk McKinley to a one-year, $4.25 million deal earlier this offseason.
McKinley, 25, is considered a low-risk, high-reward signing, but it’s unclear whether he can be an every-down player.
In 2020, Clowney played in eight games, finishing with 19 tackles, zero sacks, six quarterback hits, four tackles for a loss, four pass deflections and a forced fumble.
Pro Football Focus ranked Clowney as the 19th best edge rusher in 2020 despite not having a sack.
The 2017 campaign marked the last time Clowney played a full 16-game season when he posted a career-high 9.5 sacks.
Clowney, 28, played his best football as a member of the Houston Texans, paired opposite three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt.
Clowney made the Pro Bowl in 2016-2018, and earned second-team All-Pro honors in 2016.
Last offseason, the Browns tried to acquire Clowney several times.
However, the Browns could not meet Clowney in person because of COVID-19 protocols.
If the Browns don’t sign Clowney, they could also look to upgrade their defensive line through the 2021 NFL Draft.
Later this month, the Browns have the 26th overall pick in the first round of the draft.
Defensive end Olivier Vernon also remains a free agent after he started 13 games last season for the Browns.
Vernon, 30, tore his Achilles in the Browns’ Week 17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
