Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle is reporting that Jadeveon Clowney and the Houston Texans are not expected to come to an agreement on a long-term extension before the July 15th deadline.
The defensive end hasn’t participated in any of the Houston Texans offseason program and will “likely” miss “at least a major portion of camp” but will not hold out during the regular season.
Clowney was hoping to land a mega-deal, much like Demarcus Lawrence and Frank Clark did during this offseason, but instead, he’ll play the 2019 season under the $15.9 million franchise tag.
Clowney appeared in 15 games during the 2018 season, amassing 47 tackles, 9 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 3 fumble recoveries, one defensive TD, and a pass defense.
He was rated as the No. 9 overall edge defender out of 103 qualifying players by Pro Football Focus.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
