Contradictions pile up in the federal government's approach to military misconduct

  Contradictions pile up in the federal government's approach to military misconduct Weeks of hearings and a parade of witnesses before two parliamentary committees have — at the very least — uncovered a cascade of contradictions in the Liberal government's approach to sexual misconduct in the military. Anticipated, but sorely absent, has been the kind of "ah-ha" moment on which so many political crises are expected to turn. Still, the contradictions are important and could have long-term implications — for politics and the institutions of the state, and perhaps for the prosecution of future cases, say the experts.

After defensive end Jadeveon Clowney signed with the Browns , he said he is “ looking forward to playing with somebody dominant on the other side in Myles Garrett .” Garrett has similar feelings about sharing the field with Clowney . He said it will be fun to play with “an athletic specimen like And yet he was underwhelming and mostly invisible when he was on the other end from JJ while he was winning DPOY’s and averaging 20+ sacks a year in Houston. And none of his teammates have ever complained when he left… and he always leaves… leaves disappointed faces in the rear view mirror.

The Browns will line up Clowney on the opposite side of their line from Garrett , another former No. 1 overall pick who has grown into one of the league's best defensive players and is a threat to get a sack on every snap. And while much has been made of Clowney 's addition making Garrett better, the The signing of Clowney , who has 32 career sacks, has only raised expectations. Clowney was in a similar situation last season with the Titans, and he knows that expectations can change a team. “When guys are trying to win and everybody is looking for the win, it brings out the best in everybody on the team

CLEVELAND — Like one of those rabid Browns fan, Myles Garrett is salivating at the team's potential after seeing the free agent additions made this winter.

With Jadeveon Clowney coming aboard, Cleveland's defence will be better. Maybe even dangerous.

“We'll be very scary,” Garrett said.

The All-Pro defensive end spoke Thursday for the first time since the Browns signed Clowney, who like Garrett was taken No. 1 overall in the NFL draft, to a one-year, incentive-laden $10 million contract.

With both Clowney and Garrett coming off the edge, opposing quarterbacks could have little time to throw or be comfortable.

  AP source: Browns still putting rush on Jadeveon Clowney CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns remain in active pursuit of defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, a person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press on Monday. The free agent visited the team last month and could do so again. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter. It's unclear if the sides are negotiating a contract. ESPN, citing unidentified sources, said the sides are “progressing in talks.” The Browns offered Clowney a multiyear contract last year before he signed a one-year, $13 million contract with the Tennessee Titans. Clowney did not have a sack in eight games before undergoing season-ending knee surgery.

The Browns will line up Clowney on the opposite side of their line from Garrett , another former No. 1 overall pick who has grown into one of the league’s best defensive players and is a threat to get a sack on every snap. And while much has been made of Clowney ’s addition making Garrett better, the Cleveland was already a Super Bowl contender. The signing of Clowney , who has 32 career sacks, has only raised expectations. Clowney was in a similar situation last season with the Titans, and he knows that expectations can change a team. “When guys are trying to win and everybody is looking for the

The Browns , a destination for NFL free agents for the first time in forever, signed defensive end Jadeveon Clowney to a one-year contract. That should make it difficult for opposing teams to double team either defensive end, which may have been one reason Clowney was attracted to the Browns . “It’s definitely frustrating. You game-plan all week to go against one person and you go into the game and all of a sudden there’s two people in front of you, and somebody chipping the whole game,” Clowney said.

“I know everyone else is looking forward to it, and so am I," Garrett said of Clowney's arrival, which has pushed soaring expectations for the Browns higher after their playoff appearance last season. ”I know the guy is aggressive, really gets after it and he has a motor: keeps attacking, plays the run well and a good pass rusher.

“He’s an athletic specimen like someone I know on the Browns, so it will be fun."

Garrett was in downtown Cleveland to help unveil two large murals he commissioned, with one of them including renderings of two of the city's most famous sports icons: Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown and NBA superstar LeBron James.

Garrett teamed with artist Glen Infante on the colorful “Cleveland is the Reason” murals, which are displayed on the outside of the Cleveland Visitors Center.

NFL: Jadeveon Clovney finds new Team

 NFL: Jadeveon Clovney finds new Team The Cleveland Browns have agreed with Edge-Rusher Jadeveon Clovney to a one-year contract. The deal brings him a maximum of ten million dollars. © Provided by Spox Jadeveon Clovney in the future plays for the Cleveland Browns. Clovney promises a lot of his new environment and is particularly looking forward to playing Myles Garrett in the defensive line opposite star players.

Jadeveon Davarus Clowney (/dʒəˈdɛviɒn/ jə-DEV-ee-on; born February 14, 1993) is an American football outside linebacker who is a free agent.

Clowney will now lead that group, alongside defensive tackle Takk McKinley and linebacker Anthony Walker , as well as veteran defensive tackle Malik Jackson . Ultimately that group, along with the economical one-year deal with returning wideout Rashard Higgins , accounts for a very good haul of talent As he considered his next stop in the NFL, Jadeveon Clowney said there was something about the Browns that made them very appealing. The dynamic free agent defensive end signed a one-year, million contract with Cleveland on Wednesday, joining All-Pro end Myles Garrett on the defensive line of

“I have a passion and compassion for people, so I just wanted to give everybody something to look at, they’ll smile upon when they come down the street and something that inspires them,” Garrett said.

Browns coach Kevin Stefanski was on site to support Garrett, who first came here in 2017 and considers Cleveland a home.

“The longer I’ve been here, the more it’s grown on me, and I’ve just started to love it,” the 25-year-old said. "Even when I’m in Texas, I sometimes miss my home of being in the city or just going through and seeing the people.

"Back where I’m from, they say we have a lot of kind, well-mannered people, and I feel like it’s the same way here in Cleveland. So it’s much appreciated. It’s always felt like a second home.”

With the NFL draft coming to Cleveland next week, Garrett said the rest of the country will get to see a city he feels sometimes gets treated unfairly.

“A lot people look at Cleveland and they kind of just write it off,” he said. "When I tell them about it, I say, ‘Just come in with an open mind. You don’t know about a lot of hidden gems. You just have to go out there with no expectations. Be open to it all.’”
