Jadeveon Clowney received the franchise tag this year to remain with the team as they work toward a possible multi-year contract. The team and Clowney have yet to agree to a long-term extension, fueling rumors that Houston could trade him away before the season begins. It's hard to imagine that happening while the Texans believe they are in a competitive window to win. In addition to generating sacks himself, Clowney helps take some of the blocking pressure off of J.J. Watt. A similar season of just under double digit sacks and 50 combined tackles is likely for the edge rusher. (May 20)

Texans | Jadeveon Clowney won't get new deal (Mon Jul 15, 08:19 AM) - Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney will not get a deal done before the deadline Monday, July 15, for franchise tag players to sign long-term contracts.

Our View: Clowney was not expected to get a new deal prior to Monday's deadline for franchise-tagged players. With the Texans failing to reach an agreement, Clowney is likely to stay away from some training camp activities then play out the season in what could be his last year in Houston. The team was probably hesitant to shell out big money for Clowney because of his extensive injury history. He's only played a 16-game season once in five years as a pro.
