Houston Texans Morning Huddle–Clowney Trade?

Here are your daily Houston Texans stories for Tuesday:
Potential Clowney Trade Destination by Morning News USA
"According to Christopher Smith of Saturday Down South, Clowney is not a fan of a 3-4 defensive system. It was allegedly the main reason why he turned down an offer to join Alabama in college. The Texans run the 3-4 scheme, which could be one of the main reasons why he has been struggling to find his place in Houston."
Don’t buy any of this for one second–Clowney is not going anywhere. He’s a former top pick with immense talent still unrealized. Unless the Cowboys absolutely mortgage their future (multiple first round picks and players) there is no way the Texans deal Clowney. Furthermore, if Clowney didn’t want to play in a 3-4, wouldn’t that come up in pre draft interviews and keep the Texans from drafting him? This is utter rubbish.

Braxton Miller Learning the Offense by Deepi Sidhu, Houstontexans.com
"Braxton Miller grasped a complex Texans offense very well for a rookie, according to head coach Bill O’Brien.But it wasn’t quick and it wasn’t easy, according to Miller.“Just coming from college and going to a big playbook like this, it took time,” Miller said Monday. “It took the rookie minicamp and OTAs to actually understand the concepts and the formations, the whole terminology, the words. It took a little toll on us when we first got here but it’s starting to pick up fast.”"
Great to hear the young man getting up to speed so quickly. He will be a real weapon for the Texans this season.
Texans Awards by Seth Payne, CBS Local
"Best Bull Rider: given to the guy who isn’t all that big, but is tough as nails.Kevin Johnson. Johnson shows tremendous play recognition on throws to the flats, and snuffs them out before they can develop by arriving on time and with form tackles."
This is entertaining. Worth a read.
