A few days ago, there was a report that stated the Miami Dolphins had brought Jadeveon Clowney in for a meeting, which was looked at as an attempt to get him to sign his franchise tender as part of a trade.
Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported on Friday that the outside linebacker remains “adamant he doesn’t want to play for the Miami Dolphins,” which is why he hasn’t signed his tender.
The Houston Texans are said to have offered a first-round pick and Clowney in a potential trade for LT Laremy Tunsil. Miami wants more than that, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
Clowney was in the final year of his four-year, $22.272 million contract before the team decided to pick up his fifth-year option, something Clowney did not appreciate.
The pro bowler recorded 47 tackles, 9 sacks, a forced fumble, three fumble recoveries, one defensive touchdown and a pass defense during the 2018 NFL season.
