REPORT: Houston Texans Shopping Jadeveon Clowney In Trade Talks
Well, it looks like Jadeveon Clowney has probably played his last game in a Texans uniform.
According to Michael Lombardi, the Texans are shopping him in talks around the league.
Lombardi added that the Texans trade demands for Clowney “will be reasonable” and “won’t be hard to solve.” The only issue the Texans have in the trade talks will be the kind of money Clowney is looking for in a long-term deal.
The Texans applied the franchise tag to Clowney during the offseason, but he has yet to sign it, along with him skipping offseason program, training camp and the first preseason game so far.
Clowney will have to sign that franchise tender in order to be traded.
Texans HC Bill O’Brien still has no clue when Clowney will be at camp.
“I don’t know. I really don’t,” O’Brien said on NFL Network. “I know he’s working hard. He’s out there working out…he’s in shape. He’s doing everything he needs to do to be ready to play. But ultimately that’s up to him (when he reports). When he wants to show up, he’ll show up, and he’ll be ready to go. He’s a professional. When that happens, we’ll move forward with that. But I have no idea when he’ll be here. I can’t predict that.”
The former No. 1 overall pick of the Texans back in 2014 recorded 47 tackles, 9 sacks, a forced fumble, three fumble recoveries, one defensive touchdown and a pass defense during the 2018 NFL season.
