Report: Houston Texans trading Jadeveon Clowney to Seattle Seahawks
The Houston Texans are trading former No. 1 overall draft pick Jadeveon Clowney to the Seattle Seahawks, as reported by Jay Glazer of Fox Sports.
How things have changed for the Houston Texans this preseason compared to a year ago, as Jadeveon Clowney is being traded to the Seattle Seahawks per a report by Jay Glazer of Fox Sports.
The Texans and Clowney have been in contract negotiations this offseason. Clowney has not yet reported to the team or signed his franchise tag tender, leading to what seems to have been bitterness between the Texans and the Seahawks.
Below is what Glazer first reported on Twitter about the Clowney trade to the Seahawks:
Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle is reporting the Seahawks are sending a third-round pick and two players to the Texans in exchange for Clowney:
Tom Pelissero of NFL Network also has joined in on the reports, saying this about the trade of Clowney to Seattle:
Though the pass rusher Clowney is an above-average player in the NFL at what he does, he and the Texans never seen eye-to-eye as to what position he should be listed at when it came to the franchise tag, as being a defensive end or linebacker was a difference of around $2 million with the tag.
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com has listed the players in the trade with Seattle:
Add that with Clowney finding out the Texans wanted to trade him, and this is the final result. The Texans will receive the third-round pick, plus linebacker Jacob Martin, and pass rusher Barkevious Mingo, as this Saturday morning report does change the landscape of the Texans on defense.
Clowney has played since 2014 with the Texans, and his career totals include 205 tackles and 29 sacks. This past season in 2018 ,Clowney totaled 47 tackles and nine sacks. In ’17, he had 9.5 sacks and 59 tackles.
