Dolphins interested in Clowney trade

The offseason drama between the Houston Texans and Jadeveon Clowney is all but officially over.

Given that he played for the Texans before joining the Seahawks and given that one of his former Houston teammates now has been linked to the Seahawks in a possible trade, it's worth at least wondering whether defensive end Jadeveon Clowney could be headed for the Pacific Northwest. Set to earn $12,306,00 according to www.sportrac.com, and an unrestricted free agent in 2020, the Texans did not have faith in any type of long-term deal, nor did Clowney's camp. Clowney didn't sign his franchise tender, which effectively gave him a no-trade clause - he could not be traded until he signed the tender. The trade agreement was first reported by Fox Sports. While Clowney hasn't been everything the franchise hoped when they picked him first overall in 2014, he's a solid player who still has some untapped potential and is only 26 years old. Clowney used the unsigned tag as leverage, only signing to be dealt to a team of his choosing. It had been coming for weeks after Houston's star pass rusher refused to report to the team's training cmap. The Dolphins aren't going anywhere this season, and with reports of a "revolt" in the locker room if offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil was involved in a Clowney trade, maybe it's best for the Dolphins to let this one be. Clowney had a career-high 59 tackles, 21 tackles for a loss and 9.5 sacks in 16 starts during his 2017 campaign. They needed some high-end talent and have gotten that. If the Dolphins acquire him, they can attempt to sign him to a longterm contract as early as next offseason. He had been underwhelming in his move from strongside linebacker, where he started in 2018, to defensive end and carried a $5.2 million cap charge in the final year of his deal.

He entered the National Football League as the no. 1 overall pick in 2014 and has played for the Houston Texans until he entered the free agency after season 2018.
