The saga that is Jadeveon Clowney and the Houston Texans goes on for another day as rumors continue to swirl about his next possible destination. The Houston Texans Pro Bowl pass rusher remains away from the team as he awaits signing a new agent after firing his previous one.
During the spring, the Texans slapped a franchise tag on him and Clowney showed his anger by refusing to sign it and staying away from the team ever since.
It seems he might be staying away from the franchise for much longer. According to NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo, Clowney has told people close to him that he is willing to miss 2019 regular season game action.
The Texans DE would be forfeiting around $1 million per week if actually goes through with missing games. Garafolo described Clowney as “hurt” that the Texans have entertained trading him.
Clowney’s leverage is starting to dwindle with each passing day no team would be willing to part ways with a left tackle early in the season in order to get him on the squad. He’s already not eligible to sign an extension until next season and would be playing under the franchise tag in 2019, regardless of where he spends the season.
