Houston Texans Actively Shopping Jadeveon Clowney

Billy Woods | August 28th, 2019

Jadeveon Clowney of the Houston Texans hasn’t quite lived up to the hype, but he has still made a name for himself as a star at the outside linebacker position. Since the start of training camp, Clowney has been the subject on many trade rumors due to his contract dispute with the Texans organization.


After suffering multiple injuries that seemingly derailed his career, Clowney bounced back in a big way. Clowney quickly asserted himself as a star outside linebacker and a perfect compliment to a player of JJ Watt’s caliber. Last season, Clowney had 56 total tackles and added nine sacks. The Texans defense has long been feared with Clowney, Watt and Whitney Mercilus chasing opposing quarterbacks around the field. With Clowney on the brink of departure, where does this place the Texans defense?

The Texans have been reached by the Miami Dolphins, who are extremely interested in Clowney. The Texans are home to one of the worst offensive lines in the league. Deshaun Watson has spent his young career running for his life in the backfield. It’s remarkable that he’s been able to post the numbers he has and able to consistently improve after each season.

If the Texans are to trade Clowney, their immediate need is a strong left tackle to protect Watson, who is arguably the most valuable asset on the team. The Texans have expressed interest in the Dolphins left tackle Laremy Tunsil, but the Dolphins were quick to show no interest in parting with Tunsil.

The Texans are in no hurry to part ways with Clowney, who hasn’t signed his one-year franchise tender with the team yet. As the season approaches, teams on the brink of championship contention will eventually become desperate to overpay for Clowney.

Be on the lookout for a trade between the Texans and Washington Redskins. Star left tackle Trent Williams has expressed interest in being trading from the team. Williams prefers to be on a team with playoff aspirations. The fit with the Texans is perfect, who is a young team with a wide-open division.
